Please come and share in our tribute and thanks to Ron.Banquet tickets go on sale at the December 13, 2018 general meeting. Ticket price is $40 per person and $20 for children 12 and under. We are accepting cash, checks and credit cards. More details to come on the menu for the night. The bar this year will be a no-host bar at very reasonable prices.Remember that this is your club and the success of the banquet relies on your ticket purchases and donations. We are accepting donations at the general meetings. If you can’t make the meeting call any board member and they will pick it up. Don’t limit your donations to fly fishing. Handcrafted items, gift cards and baskets are all welcome.
This year’s general raffle will include hundreds of items including rods, reels and other fishing equipment. Also, we again will have a silent auction for 20 premium items. We will also have a 50/50 raffle which our members enjoy. This year we will also have a special wine/liquor event. Members can donate a bottle of wine or liquor priced in the $20-40 a bottle range as one of their donations. Members will then be able to purchase a sealed bag of wine/liquor for $20 knowing that they might get a more expensive bottle. They can’t lose. AFC will provide the bags. Bring your bottles to the general meeting.Remember that the proceeds our banquet helps support our fly fishing educational program as well as supporting Project Healing Waters, Northern Arizona University Scholarship as well as local educational and conservational programs through Arizona Game and Fish Department, White Mountain Lakes Foundation, Trout Unlimited and other organizations.
