January 28, 2008

The Maryland Chapter of the Ruffed Grouse Society will hold its 11th annual Sportsmen's Banquet on Saturday, Feb. 23, at the Lynfield Event Complex, 10142 Hansonville Road Frederick, Md., beginning with cocktails at 6 p.m. Dinner will be served at 7:30 p.m.

As is the custom at all RGS fundraisers, this event will feature live and silent auctions, games, drawings and door prizes; highlighted with a selection of firearms, artwork and collectibles.

According to Bob Lindgren, tickets are $40 for RGS members, a member's spouse or guest, $40 for youngsters under age 16, and $65 for new or renewing members - the latter two including a one year RGS membership. There is also a combination membership dinner ticket and spouse ticket for $85. Banquet, conservation and sustaining sponsorship packages are also available at $250, $500 and $1,000 respectively.

And, continuing in the spirit of the outdoors, youngsters under the age of 16 who recently took and passed a hunter education course and/or women who have participated in a recent Outdoors Women program, and can verify their participation will receive a complimentary dinner ticket when accompanied by a paying adult.
