PA Fly Fishing Museum Association presents the:
PFFMA 17th ANNUAL FALL FUND-RAISING BANQUET

Saturday November 14th, 2015, Allenberry Resort, Boiling Springs, PA 17007

You are invited to join us at Allenberry Resort, for PFFMA’s Annual Fundraising Event. This years fundraiser includes, a free 2:00 afternoon reception in the museum for Tom Dorsey and Tom Maxwell of Thomas & Thomas Rods, Robert “Bucky” Metz of Metz Hatchery, and Thaddeus Norris, author of the “American Angler”, in 1864, all of whom will be inducted into the Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Museum at the afternoon reception. There will also be several of PA’s finest bamboo rod builders displaying their rods, plus a cane rod building demonstration. The inductions will be at 4:00 and feature free refreshments and a champagne toast, complements of Allenberry Resort. This should give everyone attending time to meet some of the icons of PA’s Bamboo Rod and Hackle world, have a book signed, receive some tips, and learn from the experts present. Joining in the celebration this year will be Bob Clouser, Joe Humphreys, Ed Jaworowski and Ed Shenk.

The evening activities will start at 6:00pm in the Carriage Room: Festivities begin with Live Music with Dr. Beth Trez, of Trez Music and Education Center, Cash Bar, Luscious Buffet, Scrumptious Dessert, Both Live & Silent Auction items of extraordinary experiences, Guided Trips, Collectables, and Treasures.

Live and Silent Auction Items

We have an awesome line-up of auction items for your bidding pleasure.  Included are an array of fly fishing trips, rods, reels, artwork, books, and other items.  If you are attending the banquet, you may bid on these items during our LIVE and SILENT auctions.  But if you cannot attend, you may submit a proxy bid.  Here is how the proxy bids will work.

Send an email to our LIVE and SILENT AUCTION coordinator, Jim Rainey, at 2raineys@comcast.net.  Provide your name, address, email address, and phone number.  Identify the auction item(s) on which you are bidding.  State the maximum dollar amount you will bid.  Finally, include the following statement:  “I agree that I will make my payment to the Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Museum Association upon notification that I submitted the winning bid.”

You will be assigned a bidder number.  As bidding commences during the LIVE and SILENT AUCTIONS, your bids will be entered in $5 increments until another bidder exceeds your maximum bid.  If you are not outbid, then you are the winner.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING PROXY BIDS IS NOON, 11/13/15!
