It's not too late for PF banquet tickets

For What It's Worth
Lead Summary
Rick Peterson, Tollefson Publishing General Manager

If you haven’t bought your ticket to The Rock County Pheasants Forever banquet, time is running out. The 33rd annual banquet is next Thursday night, Oct. 5, at Grand Prairie Events. Note the new location.
For years the annual banquet flip-flopped back and forth between Sharkee’s and the Blue Mound Banquet Center. Both Dave Halverson and Glen Gust were longtime supporters of Pheasants Forever and their support was greatly appreciated and will no doubt be missed.
So this year, along with the new location, the beautiful Grand Praire Events, Chef Skyler Hoiland from Bluestem Catering will be preparing the meal. 
It would be really helpful if you would buy your tickets by Oct. 1 so we have a good handle on how many plan to attend this year’s event. Those purchasing their tickets before Oct. 1 will have a chance to win a $100 punch card to be used at the banquet.
Tickets can be purchased from one of the Pheasants Forever board members: Darin Kindt, Jeff Wieneke, Dan Kindt, Steve Heitkamp, Dave Deragisch, Jeff Stewart, Matt Sorenson and me. We have tickets here at the Star Herald office as well.
Ticket prices are $60 for a Pheasants Forever Membership and the banquet ticket. A dinner ticket for your spouse is $25, and a Ringneck (under 16) is $15. A Sponsor Membership is $300, and  The Golden Pheasant Banquet Sponsor is $750.
At last count, 24 guns will be given away on raffles or games. Once again Stretch Mulder and his crew will be handling the live auction, and Randy Schneekloth will be the master of ceremonies and keep things moving along.
Crowing time starts at 5:30 and the meal will be ready at 7 p.m.
So get your tickets for a great cause and have a great time.
