STATE COLLEGE, PA – The Central Pennsylvania Chapter of Pheasants Forever will hold its Eighth Annual Membership Banquet on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at the Mountain View Country Club, 100 Elks Club Rd., Boalsburg, PA. Doors will open at 5:30 PM with dinner at 6:30 PM. Our guest speaker will be Dr. Mark Michelotti, Veterinarian at Centre Animal Hospital in State College. He will talk about first aid for your hunting dog.
Last year’s banquet was a huge success. We increased attendance by 20%, and gave away 9 firearms, 3 all-expenses paid upland bird hunts, 5 wildlife prints, and over a hundred other raffle prizes including items from Pheasants Forever and local businesses. Our goal is to make 2017’s banquet better and give away more prizes. With your help we hope to part ways with at least 10 firearms, 3 upland bird hunts, a couple Yeti coolers, several wildlife prints, raffle items such as chainsaws, Orvis hunting chaps, hunting vests, hundreds of shotgun shells, dog supplies, adult beverages, gift cards for local businesses, prizes for ladies and kids, and much, much more.
With the funds raised from the previous banquet and help from our conservation partners last year, we restored 51 acres of upland nesting cover plus 15 acres of wetlands and over 3 miles of stream habitat. We also hosted a beginner and youth pheasant hunt, and a dog training seminar with instructor Lisa Price.
