2018 Big Game Banquet

At our November meeting we finalized the plans to make some changes for the 2018 Big Game Banquet. There were numerous comments from folks who wished we would change the date so it wasn’t quite so close to the holidays. We thought that the first part of February might work out better so this year the Big Game Banquet will be on Saturday evening, February 10th at the Chilson Rec Center in Loveland. Yes, we’re moving the location too because we wanted something with a little more room, easier access, and better parking, without draining the club’s bank account. Matt and Jenean Hansen have everything set up so we’re good to go for Saturday, February 10th ad the Chilson Rec Center in Loveland. Yeah, I put it in orange, twice.

As usual, doors will open at 5;30 and registration will start at 6. We’ll eat at 6:30 or close to it. Dress is casual and there will be raffles, a silent auction, gift packets for the kids, and great guest speaker. There is always an amazing variety of dishes and an incredible amount of food that disappears by the end of the evening. Great stuff!
If you were fortunate to kill something this year, bring a meat dish AND a side dish, dessert, or salad. If you didn’t harvest anything this year, just bring something! Plates, utensils, and drinks will all be provided.

Raffle Donations.

We currently have a few donations lined up, but not nearly enough for a great raffle where lots of attendees go home with something. If you are a business owner, or know an owner who might wish to donate, please help us out here. If you are good with your hands and want to make something to donate, please, don’t be shy. Some of our best items are made by our very own members. We also need good, used hunting, fishing, or camping gear for the silent auction. If you have something to donate please call Dennis. (970-218-1047) He will pick it up, if necessary, or you can drop it off at his place, 2629 Hayden Ct in northwest Loveland
You all know that this is the club’s one big social event of the year and we like to have as many members and potential members attend as possible. Also, each year we have a large number of new members who have never been to one of these banquets. I know you’ll make them feel welcome. There will be great food, and lots of hunting stories so also bring your pictures to share.
The Big Game Banquet is also a great time to renew your BTB membership and talk to someone that you might only see a few times a year. Also, if you know someone who is just interested in archery or new to bow hunting, invite them too. Please come join us for a great meal and a fun evening.
