Raffle Ticket Sales – Dan Blanton Striperfest 2010

We have grown this conservation fundraising event every year since inception – we made a huge jump from 2008 to 2009 based on increased participation by those in attendance, as well as promotion of offsite participation. We had some HUGE prizes won by offsite participants last year! I think we all know as California Anglers how important this event is for all of our Bay/Delta fishing opportunities, present and future.

Dan puts in a tremendous amount of time and effort to make this event a success for us, and more importantly, for our stripers. He is working very hard for us and has been for years! Most may not realize that Dan personally solicits 90%+ of the raffle prizes from his contacts and puts a HUGE amount of work in behind the scenes to ensure the future of the fishery we all love so much. Thanks, Dan!!! We get the easy part – buying raffle tickets and winning prizes!

I know we’ll blow it out again this year, and defeat the Striper and Black Bass Eradication Campaign being pushed by private interest groups!

You may purchase tickets for offsite participation by mailing a check to my address (email me to get the address). I will personally write your name on every ticket you purchase, so that we’ll know you won and put your prize aside. We added the $1,000 tier last year based on the response to the $500 tier, so we’re going to try it again!!

$20 - single ticket
$100 - 6 tickets
$200 - 15 tickets
$500 - 40 tickets
$1000 – 100 tickets

Tickets will also be available for sale by check or cash at the California Fly Shop starting the week of September 13.
