Additional Event Details

Dinner Overview:

A wild game dinner will be prepared by Chef David Delcorvo. As done last year, men from the church will travel to hunt wild game, gathering meats for the banquet. The full menu is in the works, stay tuned for updates. See below for an example of our menu from last year.

 Menu from 2019 Banquet: 
  • Smoked pulled wild boar slider bar
  • Bacon wrapped axis meatloaf with hunters’ sauce
  • Smoked salmon tortellini carbonara
  • Wild boar chili
  • Roasted garlic mashed potatoes
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Balsamic roasted vegetables
 

Raffle Overview:

There are three types of raffles: Gun raffles, Bucket raffles, and two door prize raffles.

Gun Raffles:

There are two gun raffle tables, featuring items in a $10 and a $20 raffle. A deck of 52 cards will be sold at each table for their respective table price. When the deck is sold out, a card will be drawn from the deck. If the drawn card matches yours, you win the raffle, and may select one gun on the table. Raffles repeat throughout the night until guns are sold out (approximately 30 guns will be raffled) or the event ends.

 Additionally, there will be a mystery gun raffle. Tickets will be sold 3 tickets for $5 or 7 tickets for $10. 

Bucket Raffles:

Participants can purchase $1 (red) raffle tickets and $10 (white) raffle tickets. Buckets will be placed around the room and will indicate which prize they are for, such as tents, kayaks, hunting stands, drones, etc. Each bucket will state the ticket color used to enter. For example, a bucket that says “$1 red ticket” requires that participants put in a red ticket in order to win. From 7:45 – 8:45pm, tickets will be drawn from each bucket. If your ticket is drawn, you win the prize associated with the bucket.

Door prizes:

There will be two door prize raffles. One for just having a ticket to the event, another for filling out a connection card. Note: The connection card raffle requires participants to be 21 years of age or older.

Young Sportsman's Room:

This year at the banquet, we will be trying something new, a young sportsman's room! Young sportsmen of all ages are welcome to come and play sportsmen related games, such as nerf bow targeting shooting, nerf gun target shooting, and throwing games. Young sportsmen will win raffle tickets to enter into special drawings to win items such as a youth shotgun or a charter fishing trip for 4. Fathers or guardians can bring their young sportsmen and participate in the room from 5 to 6 P.M.

Raising Money for a Mission:

The mission of the BoB Men’s Ministry Team is to encourage, equip, and energize the men of The Naz and our community to become all God has purposely designed each man to be through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, discipleship, leadership, and obedience to the Word of God.
 
 Money raised at Men’s events, such as the BoB Sportsman’s Banquet, go towards this mission, with a heavy focus on outreach in the local community and internationally. In 2018, funds supported local community projects such as re-roofing the home of a senior citizen. Men from the BoB group act as the hands and feet of such projects, and funds from events are used to supply necessary materials. Funds were also used internationally to support mission trips to Panama for The Naz youth team, where they built child development centers for youth living in poverty.

Credit Card Transactions at the Event

When purchasing raffle tickets, credit cards can be used. However, the process is manual and requires each transaction to fill out an online form, similar to the ticket sale form. This is a time-consuming process. To skip the credit card transaction lines and spend more time enjoying the event, we highly recommend bringing cash for the raffles.
