The doors opened at 5:30 pm and even though there was a long line to get in, it went pretty quickly.  Each person attending received a nice door prize as they arrived and a chance to be the lucky winner of a 32" LCD flat screen television. This was something new this year and was really a great addition to the event.  Each guest was given a name tag with a number on it and if you participated, your number went into the drawing for the TV.

On my way to pick up my door prize I had to wonder past the grand prize drawing table for the big gun raffle. It was hard to turn down the chance to win those 5 great guns or the nice Chinese raffle guns right next to them.  That 17 HMR looked pretty enticing. During the cocktail hour the guests were able to test their skills at a number of games, purchase chances on the multitude of Chinese raffle items, and wonder around the three large raffle tables.

A very nice dinner was served at around 7:30 and featured excellent chicken and BBQ pulled pork, potatoes, rolls and butter, and coleslaw. There was plenty to eat and no one should have went home hungry. Once dinner was finished, everyone waited anxiously to see if they would go home with a great prize. 


The prizes were given out, beginning with the Chinese raffle items intermixed with blitz raffles and the prizes from the three big raffle tables followed by the big gun raffle winner and the lucky winner of the 32" flat panel TV.  What an exciting night for all those winners.  Even those who didn't win were caught up in the excitement of coming so close. When it was all finished many thousands of dollars in guns, hunting, fishing, and camping equipment were given away.
