With no banquet to manage this year the Lake County chapter of Ducks Unlimited still wants to throw a party.
And this time it’s on the house.
The chapter will host a free picnic beginning at noon, June 30.
Expected at the free picnic are soft drinks and beer. The picnic is scheduled at the Geauga Park District’s Aspen Shelter at Big Creek Park, 9160 Robinson Road, Chardon Township.
“We will hold a three gun raffle to have some fun and raise a little money for wetland conservation,” said local Ducks Unlimited volunteer, Tim Cline. “If you are interested in finding out how you can help DU or you would just like to try to win a gun, please join us at the picnic.”
Tickets for the gun raffle are $5 each, 3 for $10, or 8 for $20. The prizes are:
n 1st Prize - Weatherby Vanguard centerfire rifle in .30-06 Springfield caliber.
n 2nd Prize - Savage Axis centerfire rifle in .243 Winchester caliber.
n 3rd Prize - Weatherby Model PA-08 pump-action shotgun in 12 gauge.
Winners need not be present.
If a person is unable to attend the picnic but would like to participate in the gun raffle, contact Tim Cline or mail a check to Lake County Ducks Unlimited- 30232 Forestgrove Rd. Willowick, OH 44095.
Again, while the picnic is free reservations are requested to facilitate the ordering of food. For more information contact Cline at 440-440-749-5182 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
