Fulton-  A “Sportsman’s Banquet is being planned for all area outdoors men. The mid winter banquet will bring everyone together for a great meal and fellowship.  An auction featuring sporting goods, decoys and wildlife art is planned.  A special portion of the banquet is reserved for beginning hunters.  Hunting families are encouraged to bring their kids as they will have games just for them.  Older youths are also eligible to participate in the “Free youth gun raffle.  Several sponsors of the event have donated toward this special event for the kids. Last year 24 guns and 5 BB guns was giving away to the young hunters.   The idea of involving kids in the event is to keep the traditions of hunting, shooting and outdoor sports strong.

     A ladies raffle is planned that will feature a ladies handgun .  The event will feature raffles to win complete waterfowl packages, sporting goods, wildlife art and collectibles.  The fundraiser is hosted by the Mississippi Flyway chapter of Waterfowl USA and will be held in Manny’s banquet room in Savanna.  The wetland and waterfowl conservation group uses funds raised at its banquets for local conservation efforts.  Conservation and nesting projects have been performed in Carroll, Whiteside, Jackson, Clinton, and Rock Island counties.  Some of the money raised from last years banquet was used for excavation at Millroad Marsh near Fulton.    For information about the Sportsman’s Banquet call Ron Kaufman at 309-887-4390
