2015 Annual Auction & Banquet – Thank You Everyone for this great event!

Dear Members and Friends,

This year’s MSGDA Auction & Banquet will be held Saturday April 18th at the Eagle River Lions Club,
located at 8344 Eagle River Road. Those of you who have attended past banquets know what a great
event this is. So come out for a fun evening with friends and win some great prizes.

Our banquet gets better every year. Last year, we had the best array of raffle and auction items ever.
This year, the raffle and auction items will be even better! We already have guns, Zinger Winger
Products, an e-collar, and many other great prizes. Don’t miss out on the chance to win!

100% of the auction and raffle revenue supports MSGDA programs and events. The funds raised allow
us to keep entry fees low and provide quality birds and equipment. The banquet is a fun opportunity for
club members, guests, individuals interested in training retrievers, and the general public to win valuable
items and support MSGDA.

Dinner this year will feature three entrees: Baron of beef, Teriyaki chicken, and fish with sides of salad,
mashed potatoes and gravy, fried rice, green beans with bacon, rolls, and great deserts. Cost of the
dinner will be $40 per person, or $75 per couple. So join us for a great meal and cocktails at the Lions
