Sportsmen Banquet Set for Feb. 24


February 7, 2018

Save the date and plan to attend the second annual conservation fundraising dinner hosted by the Hi-Line Sportsmen on Saturday evening, Feb. 24, at Glasgow’s St. Raphael’s Parish Center gymnasium.

Tickets for the banquet are limited in number and are available from more than a dozen members of the local chapter committee. Deadline to purchase early-bird tickets—which include a chance to win two tickets to the John Michael Montgomery concert at this summer’s NE Montana Fair—is Monday, Feb. 12.

Doors open on Feb. 24 at 4:30 p.m. for drinks and games. A prime rib dinner with all the trimmings will be served starting at 6 p.m.

Single tickets cost $30 and couples tickets are $50. Sponsor couples tickets are $200, and include a chance at a sponsor gun, or get a group of friends together and buy a sponsor table for eight for $800. Sponsor tables get a gun to give away to tablemates.

The banquet features a wide variety of art, home furnishings and décor, raffle prizes for women and youngsters, an extensive silent auction and plenty of sporting goods on the general raffle. In addition, over a dozen guns and hunting bows will be auctioned or raffled over the course of the evening. Special items include the final team spot in this summer’s Milk River Catfish Classic fishing tournament, an AR-15 with the Hi-Line Sportsmen logo and a semi-guided youth turkey hunt in Nebraska.

All funds from the banquet stay in the local community. Hi-Line Sportsmen is a non-profit conservation group committed to improving wildlife habitat, sportsmen access, and passing on sporting traditions in Valley County and neighboring counties.

Proceeds from last year’s inaugural banquet were used to fund scholarships for college-bound sportspeople, purchase bows for the National Archery in the Schools Program, fund materials to make gate closers for landowners who provide hunting access, host a public sight-in day prior to hunting season, provide targets for the local archery range, and help host a youth field day.
