Big Game Awards Night

Big Game Award Night 2017
Big Game Award Night for 2017 is over. The night was once again successful thanks to the attendees and all the volunteers who gave up their evening to help out. There were 16 firearms that were given out for the night. Three of them were given away, 2 as grand door prizes and 1 a bonus firearm. The other 13 were raffles. The $20 raffle with the winners choice between 3 quality firearms, was won by Dan Engelhardt. Richard Dust won the Browning AB3 300 Win from the $10 key raffle and John Ashley won the Remington 870 Express 20 ga from the Fish Race Game.
The meal which was prepared and served by Marcie Sadler and her crew was stuffed pork chops and all the fixings, and again was superb.
