7Th Annual Michigan Gear Swap, Fundraiser, Meet&Greet and Dinner

Recommended Posts

Hello All,
2013 will mark the 7th annual event hosted by myself and Nikki from our home.

Saturday March 16th starting at 10am

This year from 10-11:30 we will have the meet and greet and any gear swapping that may interest you all. Be sure to bring items for trade or sell.

At 11:30ish we will go over our calendar of events and vote on the final dates and venue locations.

Following the event calendar we will conduct any other order of business such as programs, voting topics and any news of importance in the carp world.

After all orders of business we'll jump right into the Fundraiser raffle. For those of you not aware of how this works it goes like this:

For everyone that is coming, I kindly ask that you bring along a donation for the raffle table. this can be anything used or new that another sportsman may have a use for. i will then conduct the raffle. I'll select an item and announce who it's from and an estimated value, eveyone can then buy tickets for this item at $1 per ticket, no limit. After all ticket sales for that item are done we will selct a winning ticket and then procede to the next item, and so on and on.

We may have a few bigger ticket items where tickets will be a higher dollar amount.

The proceeds we raise from this event will go towards whatever we vote on prior to the raffle. Last year everyone in attendance got a CAG membership, we bought the gold pins to be used as the big fish award at our events, purchased raffle items for events, food/drink for events, items for this event to be raffled off, and the rest we rolled over into savings for the next year.

After the raffle, It's time to chow down. I am usure at this moment if I will be able to do the traditional curry and am leaning towards asking everyone that is able to, to bring something exotic, like fish or wild game. I think that would be awesome. We will of course be able to have some pizza ordered too.

Mark the date and read up on years past. smile.gif Please help me spread the word by calling, emailing, pming, facebooking all the Michigan carpers!!

Got to go check the freezer but im preety sure we should have enough venison steak to bring some over to grill up. Maby even bring some Walleye if you guys are lucky :knifefork::knifefork: but im not sure if we have any left (it goes fast in our house). As for the raffle I will have to take a look in the basement and see what I have.
