Holiday Party a Social and Financial Success!

Our December 13 Holiday Party at the D.O.C. Wine Bar in Lombard drew 47 members and guests for our annual social event and fundraiser.  The Holiday Party—which included a silent auction and bucket raffles—netted $4,134 after expenses.

Special thanks to the following guides who donated one-day trips for two anglers:
Dowagiac River—Jay Anglin of Anglin Outdoors.
Driftless Area—Dave Barron.
Kankakee River—Will Winans of Big River Fly Fishing.
Muskegon River—Kevin Feenstra of Feenstra Guide Service.
Pere Marquette River—Jeff Hubbard of Outfitters North.
Sheboygan River/Kohler Property—Matt Brush.

Please support these guides as you make your 2087 fishing plans.  For a list of other OBTU “business partners” and past donors to the Holiday Party and monthly raffles, please see our website “Business Partners” page in the “About Us” section.

Your donations to our annual rod raffle and holiday party event help fund our Chapter’s general operating expenses for the year for monthly meetings, speakers, and various conservation and youth education activities.
