Gigantic Raffle and Silent Auction at annual dinner to be Bill
Laughlin’s swan song as Raffle Chair
December 20, 2013 Oak Grove Park — Bill Laughlin will be stepping
down after the annual dinner as the club’s raffle chair after years
of steady and dedicated service. However, Bill plans to go out with
a bang rather than a whimper!
The grand prize in the general raffle is a brand new pontoon
boat. Other items include seven fly rods, gear bags, a chest pack,
fly lines, fishing shirts and jackets in various sizes, fly tying
materials, fleece jackets, storm jackets, and boxes of flies
Two of the grand prizes in the silent auction will be two
motorized Outcast float tubes. They come fully equipped other than
the batteries. Guided trips include a trip for shad, two passes to
Kelsey Bass Ranch, and a full day and a half day on the delta and a
smallmouth trip. The total value of the guided trips exceeds $1,400.
Additional silent auction items include wading boots and waders,
float tube fins, a battery charger, six books on fly fishing,
pontoon oars and seven boxes of specialty flies.
The revenue from the raffle and silent auction is a major source
of income and funds the club’s activities throughout the year and
conservation efforts for local fisheries.
Other activities at the dinner will be the installation of the
2013 officers and board and presentation of the Fly Fisher of the
Year, the Don Payne and the Incomplet Angler Awards.
The dinner is open to the public as well as club members. Members
are encouraged to invite their friends, especially those that might
be interested in joining the club.
