OUR 45TH. ANNUAL PLAID SHIRT NIGHT – NOVEMBER 4 2017
Please Welcome Rick Singleton to our Plaid Shirt Night team as our new Co-chairman. We look forward to having some fresh ideas for one of our major fundraisers of the year. New changes so far, will include a revised $1.00 raffle ticket scheme @ $20.00 per sheet you’ll receive 20 – $1.00 tickets, 1-bonus gun ticket, and a stub, all with the same number. Example – a $100.00 ticket purchaser would receive 100 – $1.00 tickets, 5 bonus gun tickets, and only have to watch 5 stub numbers. It should help to make things run much smoother. We also plan on having a special – Women / Girls raffle of a fine firearm designed specifically for ladies. A revised seating plan will also provide more open space for our guests, while still showcasing our Fin and Feather Club venue. Look for more up dates soon.
Your Plaid Shirt Night committee.
June 21, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. a skeet shooting class will be offered at the skeet range at the Fin and Feather Club.
