San Juan Gobblers to hold 17th annual banquet, auction

By Bob Curvey

Special to The SUN

Come have a great evening of fun with family and friends at the National Wild Turkey Federation banquet and auction. Starting this year, the new mission of the NWTF is Save the Habitat, Save the Hunt, so if you and your family and friends have a passion for the outdoors and wildlife, our turkey banquet is for you.

This year, we will have all new games to enjoy and great new games for the young members (Jakes) to have fun with. We will have five guns and a custom longbow set plus lots of other prizes for the Jakes this year.

We will have a great banquet package for the live and silent auctions. These are items that you can only find at these outdoor banquets — sporting art, knives, custom turkey calls and outdoor equipment, and a great group of hunting guns, rifles and shotguns, plus other great items.

The doors will open at 3:30 p.m., April 19, at the Ross Aragon Community Center, with dinner at 5:30 and auction to follow.

You can get your tickets and information by calling Mike Alley at 749-0260, Steve Lynch at 731-9172, Bob Curvey at 264-2415, or Ron Schweickert at 264-5509. Check with these members on great “early bird” package deals if you get your tickets by April 12.

Cost of tickets this year are single $55, couples $75, and Jakes $15. If you have a group, we also have package deals for you.

Your attendance will help support local, state and national wildlife projects.
