The other 8 will go to winners who purchase raffle tickets at the event. Drawings include a door prize commemorative gun, a gun safe, assorted mystery guns and many other sporting items. Based on the attendance the past two years a crowd of 460 is anticipated.
“Last year’s net was nearly $34000. We hope to surpass that amount this year” said committee member, Guy Warpness, IMH Trustee and Foundation board member. “Every year the event gets bigger, better and more fun.”
For $25 you can purchase an event ticket that includes chili, tenderloin sandwiches, beverages and an opportunity to win a rifle from ten separate drawings. You may purchase additional tickets at the door or in advance at the West Laramie Fly Store or the IMH Foundation office.
