One of the major fund raisers for our chapter is the annual “Fantasy Raffle”. This is a winner-takes-all contest in which the person holding the winning ticket wins a fabulous prize consisting of 35+ items ranging from big to small.
The highlight items: a handmade bamboo fly rod setup, which includes 2 tips, a reel, extra spool; a Tenkara fly rod with case. Other items are a handmade wooden fly box, 20 dozen flies, a guided river fly fishing trip, a camera, and a plethora of gadgets that every fly fisher needs. Retail value is over $4,000.
- One Ticket: $5.00
- Five Tickets $20.00
The drawing is held at the May Chapter meeting each year. You need not be present to win. This year’s May Chapter Meeting is on May 2nd. We have been conducting the raffle since 1993, and many people look forward to buying tickets at the Fly Fishing Show, International Sportsmens Exposition, chapter meetings and events, and several other venues.
The funds raised are used for chapter projects and operations. Examples are the annual Joseph’s Journey fishing day for terminally ill children, and several stream habitat improvement projects on Clear Creek. So, when you purchase a ticket you benefit whether you have the winning ticket or not. That’s a true winning combination.
