“Greetings from the North Country!”
I would like to open this letter by stating that we are making a new change to our annual Ultimate Sponsors Dinner this year. First, we will have a two-choice option for attendance. 1st choice is $700.00, that includes the offered Ruger American Ranch Rifle, in 4 different calibers (you pick caliber of your choice) and all gifts as in the past. The Second choice is $375.00, you opt out of the Ruger Rifle choice, and still get all the gifts and everything as usual.
On February 10th, 2018 we are having our 12th Annual Ducks Unlimited “Ultimate Sponsors Dinner” at the Bay Mills Resort and Casino in Brimley, Michigan. This year is the “81st Year of Ducks Unlimited”. We will have the new 2018 merchandise at the event for your first look. I am planning to have as much of it at this event as possible, including these guns on silent auction: 2018 Handgun of the Year, a Kimber 1911 Stainless II Two Tone Pistol .45ACP—2018 Shotgun of the Year, a Browning A5 Sweet 16, 2/3/4” Chamber Semi-Automatic Shotgun—2018 Rifle of the Year a Kimber M84 Bolt-Action Rifle Chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor. We will have 5 guns on the reverse raffle! I have included some of the details below, as well as on the enclosed order form.
- THIS year’s attendance gun is a Ruger American Ranch Rifle, of your choice in these calibers; 5.56 NATO/223, or 300 Blackout, or 7.62x39 and 450 Bushmaster all with the Moss Green Composite Stock and all the Ruger quality built into it's Rifles. You will receive your gun at the event; Bill Gawne from Coyote Firearms will be in attendance and do all the paper work for you that evening.
- SECOND offering in the package is a framed and matted special commemorative edition print, limited to 36 copies, signed and numbered, by the artist, Daniel F. Heuer.
- LAST but not least, you will receive a Ducks Unlimited Bronze Sponsor Membership, a bronze lapel pin, a DU Sponsor Print and a listing in D.U.’s Annual report.
**Again, for this year bring a guest couple who have not attended this event in the past for $100.00 which covers their dinner, drinks, snacks games and casino package. They will not receive the 2018 DU Sponsor print or the special signed edition from Daniel F. Heuer and surprise gift basket.
AFTER sampling all the Hors D’Oeuvres and enjoying our open bar, the dinner will be a special buffet style in our own private room, and will feature carved prime rib, and all the trimmings, along with a special fish plate and desserts. Bay Mills always does a great job for us on the dinner!
Due to scheduling changes, by the Bay Mills Resort and Casino, we will not be hosting the Comedy Club package as in the past on Friday evening, as there is no act scheduled to perform on that date.
For room reservations at the casino call, 1-888-422-9645, and mention that you are with the Ducks Unlimited Sponsors Dinner. We have rooms reserved for Saturday, February 10th, 2018. I would suggest that you make your room reservation as soon as possible to get one!
Thanking you in advance,
Dan & Teresa Heuer
