I was there with my wife  and we met some good people. Like many others, I was somewhat jealous of the guy that seemed to win everything he put in for last night. It seemed as though several things went a little cheaper than in past years especially the moose tag only selling for $23K. Congrats to the lucky guy that won everything and the other winners from last nights banquet. Hopefully, it will add up to putting more sheep on the mountain in the future.

Always a great banquet, last night was no exception.   :tup:

Not sure the official attendance, but I'm guessing 400?

That is a good turnout.  Is this around the traditional date for this banquet?

I was there, it was a good time. I don't know the guy who won the dall sheep hunt but I'm happy for him. He had about the luckiest night a guy can have, dall sheep hunt, $5,000 auction credit and a new gun safe!

Thanks to everyone who came and supported the Washington WSF banquet. We sold out the 350 seating we had clear back in Feb.
It was a great night where 2 people went home with FREE sheep hunts!

It was another great night, lots of good people showed up.  Moose tag went for 35,000 this year.  The two sheep tags went to an older gentleman and a pretty young kid, can't wait to do it again!
