Minnesota Waterfowl Assoc. Business Needed

12 posts in this topic

The Minnesota Waterfowl Association has a mission of protecting, restoring and enhancing habitat. Project efforts benefit migratory waterfowl and other wetland wildlife. The MWA is non-profit organization that survives through fundraising.

The Dakota Great Swamp Chapter of the Minnesota Waterfowl Association is currently planning it's annual fundraising banquet, to be held February 26th, 2004. This is the single primary fundraising event for the entire year. It consists of a dinner, live and silent auctions, raffles, and a gun raffle; these exciting elements are the draw to attend the event, and tickets to the event provide the fundraising revenue for the organization.

As in years past, we are soliciting contibutions for this event from businesses who are concerned about preserving our natural resources. Anything you could offer in the form of a raffle prize/door prize, silent or live auction item would be sincerely appreciated, and your business would be recognized as a contributor at our banquet. In addition, this is a great way to showcase any new products you may have. Of course we accept cash donations as well smile.gif

This year's banquet has some very exciting elements to it, with some pretty famous personalities volunteering to attend. But we sincerely need the help of any businesses out there that are willing.

If you think you can help out in any way or have any questions, please contact jon.p.keller@comcast.net (kpj5br on FM)

Thanks

Rick, thanks for posting this.

For all duck and goose hunters out there, the MWA really fights for you on a number of levels (legislative, wetland restoration, public hunting opportunities, etc.) and could really use your support.

Thanks

Trashdux,

that post simply was not called for.

You need links authorized before posting and you certainly are not allowed to bash.

TrashDux, please open your own thread if you would like to solicit for another organization.

The fundraising banquet will be held in Lakeville, MN, at the Chart House Restaraunt and Banquet Center.

Please email me with other questions or specifics, your donation is tax deductible, and MWA provides a receipt for your tax purposes for the retail value of your donations.

My email is jon.p.keller@comcast.net

Everyone on here that hunts ducks should be a member of the MWA. IMO.

They help do a lot.

Hi all, it's been a while since I updated this post, but this banquet is coming up next month.

I wanted to invite you all to attend, many great sponsors game through, and we will have a ton of raffle and auction items, including guns, waterfowl prints signed ONSITE by artist David Maass who will be receiving the MWA Lifetime Achievement Award that night.

My email is up above in the posts, but I'll put it here again just in case.

The regular advertisement for this goes out next week, and we expect a sell-out quickly, so this is an opportunity for the fishingmn community to get first dibs.

Thanks, and hope to see you there supporting minnesota's waterfowl and hunting habitat!

Jon

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
