Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

Many of you know that I have spent many years volunteering for both the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the National Wild Turkey Foundation in Virginia.  Well it is that time of year again and we are preparing for the local banquet and I saw something that might be of interest to many of you.  We are holding a raffle for a really nice pair of binoculars.


10 by 42 EL Binoculars or $1000.00 in Cash.

The chapter is selling the 2008 PreBanquet tickets at $10.00 per ticket or 3 for $20.00 which is a steal and we only have a limited number of tickets.  My understanding is that we have 750 total tickets for this raffle and the drawing will be held on March 15th, 2008 which is the night of our banquet.

Of course we would love to have you all there at the banquet to bid on our fabulous auction items and trips.  We hold our banquet at the Burke Volunteer Fire House in Burke, VA and the food is exceptional which is rare for a banquet. (No offense to any other banquets, but I have had some really bad banquet meals in my day.)

Please contact Carl Hampton at 703-323-8671 if you are interested in tickets for the banquet.

As far as the raffle please email Rich Vigue at for tickets.  These are an amazing set of binoculars and the tickets will go fast.  Rich can take checks, Cash or Credit Cards.  We can mail tickets anywhere in the country and I will announce the winner here on the blog on March 16th, 2008.
