How many of you out there go to your local DU Banquets?

I've been going to our local for 18 years and have a good time seeing old friends while helping out the Ducks.

Our Banquet was last week and I was lucky enough to walk away with a brand new Avery Finisher.

Go Ducks!

I go to our Ducks Unlimited banquets and I have been since I was ten. I also go to Delta Waterfowl banquets but just started that a few years ago. These are a fun time, and a great environment.
Not too often for myself. I used to be a comm member. I have been helping the Minnesota Waterfowl Assn where I live and have been on the DW MN Comm the last few years. Frankly there is only so much time and $ to go around, and for me DW and Minnesota Waterfowl Assn gets the bulk of it as they need it more than DU does as they are smaller. I still am a member of DU though and am a member of DU CA too.

There is a joke here in MN about DU. What 2 things does every town in MN have? a treatment counselor and a DU banquet Bwaaahahahhaa Yup land of 10,000 lakes and alc/drug treatment centers There are about 45,000 DU members in MN alone out of 115,00 waterfowl hunters. MWA has about 7-8,000 and I'm not sure what DW has. Kind of pitiful--there should be at least 60K DU members and 25,K MWA members IMHO
Just attended Hermiston Oregon's last night. Good time had by all. I donated 4 of my calls. 1 duck, 1 rabbit sqealer, 1 goose and 1 duck box set. I was sorry to see that they only went for $75.00. Oh well, still had fun and raised some bucks for ducks.
