Shooting Sports Banquet- Friday, November 10th

By:  Sid Burkholder
The Sportsman’s Banquet will be held Friday, November 10, 2017 at the Municipal Hall in Anthony, KS. The doors open at 5:30 p.m., with the meal served at 6:30 p.m., followed by the auction. A bounty of great auction items and prizes will be offered again this year. Don't miss out on your chance to own an original wildlife painting by Sam Beam, a handmade quilt by Michele Donoho, antler art by Danny Porter and a masterpiece quilt pattern bowl by Bob Mabry. Other items include, but are not limited to: guns, handmade knife, ice chests, meat bundle, bow target, hunting and fishing equipment, etc. There will also be items available for youth drawings and auction.  More items are added daily!
The primary benefactor of auction proceeds is the Chaparral High School Trapshooting Team. The Trapshooting Team is responsible to raise the finances to support themselves. Team members pay for their own clay targets and membership which amounts to about $300.00 per member per year. Auction proceeds are used to help provide shotgun shells for practice and high school league targets. The total cost of shells for the team amount to about $18,000.00 per year. The Anthony Gun Club and Southern Kansas Bowhunters are the secondary benefactors of the auction proceeds. These clubs use funds to maintain and improve their equipment. We are fortunate to receive a small amount of money through grant programs. The individuals involved in supporting the Chaparral High School Trapshooting Team, the Anthony Gun Club and the Southern Kansas Bowhunters volunteer their time.
Bring your family and come join us Friday evening for a good meal and a good time! Tickets will be available at the door.
