More on MDF’s Livermore-Pleasanton Banquet, Raffle and Auction

We’ve got some great trips to sell next week. Here’s some info.  

If you’re interested in New Zealand red stag hunting, or other animals, here’s a link to our donated hunt to be auctioned on Thursday March 11. http://www.leithenvalley.co.nz/  The donation is for five days of meals, accommodations and hunting including trophy fees for one red stag of silver medal quality. Sue and Alan Stewart are first-rate people and first-rate treatment is guaranteed. 

Here are a couple of likely silver medal stags.

The Holm Ranch youth blacktail hunt has been a great success each season. Here’s a photo of a lucky youngster from several years back. 

We've had 100% success on this hunt for many years running.

For the 6-person, five-day Montana Lodge and fishing expedition, here’s a link to their web site. I met owner, Ross Fratzke at the WHCE and he assured me they will do what it takes to make your trip successful.  Here’s a link.  http://flatironoutfitting.com/

We personally hunt with Matt Bloom of Kennedy Meadows Resort each season and he does a great job for us . For more information about the drop camp hunting or fishing trip with Kennedy Meadows Resort and Pack Station, check out their site at http://www.kennedymeadows.com 

Fernando was our packer on a trip with Kennedy Meadows Resort last summer.

Just in today, a few more items, including three western art framed prints, a couple more big sculptures, a delivered load of base rock and two day use of a skid loader (don’t ask me what that is, but I think it’s for moving dirt – or rock. 

For gardeners and landscapers, we got what you need: 8-15 Sequoia Aptoas Blue (redwood trees I recon), 10-1 gallon Viburnum Spring Bouqet “In Bloom” (my wife knows what these are), 10-1 gallon Nandina Donmestica, 10-1 galoon Azalea Happy Days, 5-5 gallon Juniper Procumbens Na Na and 5-5 gallon Azalea Girards Fuschia. Check out what these would cost at your local nursery. 

Here’s the scoop on the donor, Village Nurseries. http://www.villagenurseries.com/video.html 

We also accept phone bids. If you’re interested call me at (925)989-4372 and we’ll set it up.

MDF Livermore-Pleasanton On Track for March 11, 2010

We’ve got about forty tickets left to sell for next week’s banquet. We’ll have a bunch of guns in the raffle and some pretty girls selling raffle tickets. We’ve got a gun safe in one of the games. That you can count on.

We got a Colorado elk hunt, a New Zealand red stag (silver medal) hunt donated by Leithen Valley Trophy Hunts, a five- day stay for six fishermen with Flat Iron Outfitters in Montana at their lodge, a weekend camping and fishing trip for four donated by Wilderness Unlimited a drop camp pack trip with Kennedy Meadows Pack Station, a youth blacktail hunt near Livermore, a three-man guided duck hunt and a couple more fishing trips for good measure.

Of course we’ll have the typical MDF logo items, banquet rifle, artist of the year print, belt buckle and banquet knife. Several taxidermists have contributed all or partial mounts and we’ll have the usual smattering or artwork and sculptures.

The Livermore High School Alumni Association has donated a lifetime membership and we’ll auction that off as well. If time permits I’ll follow up with more details on the large items.

The doors open next Thursday at 5:30. I’m certain we’ll sell out before then  – we’re limited to 250 – so if you’re interested call Bob Holm (925)447-2044 or myself at (925)989-4372.
