    I am starting this thread to keep track of what we are bringing for the givaway gifts and raffle prizes. post all here, keep in mind that myself and Chris (the gavel) are both making trips to the Berkley outlet before the gathering and would be a great place to find awsome deals, If you are interested in purchasing anything from the outlet let us know...This place has everything!!

    I got to thinking about this last night, I think we should have limited raffles and stick to a more drawing based gift system. A couple raffles aren't going to be a problem, but if we do it over and over and over a) not everyone will win something, and b) it gets expensive fast and c) it gets boring standing around watching... (remember that tournament we fished Steve?) :eek:oooh:

    Just some things to think about.

    For smaller gift give aways I thought of:
    fillet knife
    bells
    sinkers
    nail clippers
    bug spray
    cast net
    bait bucket
    hat light
    scale

    I think we should have a cash prize drawing for everyone that attends. Say like $50 or $100! I agree to split between a raffle and a gift based drawing since a lot of people will be spending money just to get here. I think this will help as far as attendance goes also. What about the shirts we were talking about at the meeting we had at Mikes? That would be a cool prize also!

    It is nothing to run up their on a saturday though... we could get a group and go anytime.

    Then get up early when I go and we will head straight there, I already have a cabin up there reserved so I can unpack everything after we hit the outlet...
