It’s with great pride and pleasure to make those not aware that the Finger Lakes Chapter smashed through our milestone goal of reaching $1,000,000 net profit since our inception in 1992! It took 23 years of hard work by dozens of Committee members, many of whom are still with us, and thousands of generous supporters such as you. It was a fantastic banquet this past March, with more than 10 RMEF Chapters represented from all over the North East here to support us, but we also had a special visit from RMEF co-founder Bob Munson. Why does our Committee continue to donate our valuable time to RMEF all these years? RMEF simply does a fantastic job putting a significant amount of those dollars directly to work in preserving and enhancing elk and other wildlife habitat in the United States.
However, our work is far from over and we cannot rest on our recent accomplishments. We would ask that you “save the date “and consider attending our 24th Annual Fundraising Banquet being held again at Burgundy Basin Inn on March 7th, 2015. If you have not attended, it’s a high energy night with hundreds of outdoor enthusiasts and hunters sharing stories, great food with wonderful merchandise and hunts. GET TICKETS
If you can’t attend the banquet, and even if you can, there is still another way to support our Chapter and RMEF while giving you an inexpensive way to own a very high quality rifle beyond what many of us would spend on a gun. Enclosed you will find three raffle tickets for a Kimber Adirondack Model 84M (MSRP $1786) with a unique 7mm-08 Rem. Caliber. It has an 18”Stainless Steel Barrel with a Kelvar/Carbon Fiber stock with Optifade Forrest. The waiting time for this gun would normally have been 6 months; however Kimber is graciously pulling one off their production line and has earmarking it for our Chapter. The drawing for this gun will be at our March 7th, 2015 banquet. However, you do not have to be present to win it. We will have a limited number of tickets available at the banquet as we don’t want to take away from other raffles, so we suggest purchasing them through the mail or from a Committee member, even if you plan on attending. And as incentive to buy your ticket(s) soon, we are offering an “Early Bird” raffle for only those that purchase or postmark the envelope by Saturday January 10th. For each ticket purchased, you will have one chance at a $100 gift certificate from Gander Mountain plus a beautiful Browning Ax and Folding Knive combo set with the RMEF logo on each one plus a fishpond stainless steel Thermos with insulated case and the RMEF logo on the thermos and case.
