This is a busy time of the year for the Tri-County Sportsman’s Group. The members of Rod and Grun Clubs from Carbon, Stillwater and Yellowstone counties are gearing up for their second annual fundraising banquet and they recently granted funds to youth groups and to the Laurel Jaycees.
The Tri-County Sportsman’s Group disbursed checks to eight groups that included youth shooting clubs from the three counties that comprise their membership, March 22 at Jaycee Hall in Riverside Park,
Receiving funding were the Laurel Jaycees, $700; Carbon County 4-H, $3,126; the Laurel Rod and Gun Club, $3,500; the Laurel Rifle Club, $1,000; the Yellowstone Rifle Club, $2,000; the Laurel Shooting Education Program, $2,200; the Road Runners 4-H Club, $3,000; and Carbon County Archery, $1,500.
The Sportsman’s Group used money they raised at the 2016 banquet to fund the grants. The goal of the banquet and other fundraising efforts is to promote and support youth shooting and education groups, women’s shooting education programs and organizations that promote outdoor activities within the tri-county area, according to an invitation to the upcoming banquet.
The banquet will be Saturday April 1, at Jaycee Hall. The Sportsman’s group is seeking donors and sponsor to help make the banquet as successful as it was last year. Donations are welcome for door prizes and the silent and live auctions; and sponsorships include dinner tickets, hats and entry in the rifle drawing. For a $1,000 sponsorship, donors receive eight dinner tickets, a hat and a rifle. For information on tickets or to be a sponsor, contact Curt Lord at 628-7775.
