If you’re in the hunt for a new gun, the May 2 East Grand Forks Ducks Unlimited banquet might be just the ticket.
Mike Hedlund, one of the event’s organizers, sent out a news release today with specifics on the upcoming “50 Gun Banquet” at the American Legion in East Grand Forks. At least 50 guns with a total value of $30,000 will be given away; half are worth $500 or more, and four are valued at more than $1,000.
Here’s a closer look at how the banquet will work:
- There will be a silent auction with a variety of DU merchandise up for bid but every other raffle or game will only have guns for prizes.
- Attendees who sign up for a DU sponsor package will also be entered into a special gun raffle for sponsors only. The sponsor guns are over and above the 50 guns for the main banquet, and more sponsors will mean more guns given away.
- There are a variety of ticket packages available starting at $50, which includes a one-year membership to Ducks Unlimited, dinner at the banquet and a chance at 12 door prize guns.
- Early birds (those who buy a ticket by April 27) all get a chance on an additional “Earlybird” gun — that’s a chance at 13 guns for just $50.
