2012 Banquet

Banquet July 16, 2012 Recap

Successful Colorado Headwaters Trout Unlimited Banquet Photos, Supporters and Photos

Last year’s banquet was on Monday, July 16th and again it was at the spectacular Devil’s Thumb Resort.  Great live and silent auction items, excellent food and drink, the views of the Indian Peaks Range, some much needed rain, and the chance to socialize with others that want to protect and preserve our Colorado Headwaters helped make the event a success. Preliminary figures show that with your support we raised about $15,000.

The annual summer banquet for our Colorado Headwaters TU chapter is the only major fundraising event that we conduct.  It has evolved into a very fun evening for all involved and provides much needed financial assistance for the projects we support.   These include education outreach in the schools, stream temperature monitoring, youth conservation camp sponsorship, funding for Front Range education on the impact of water diversions, and the continued fight to keep as much water on this side of the divide as we can.

Our annual banquet is our only significant fundraiser of the year. This is how we raise the money to defend the Upper Colorado, Fraser, Grand Lake and all our water in Grand County. As Kirk Klancke said at the event, "we're not just a fly fishing club, we're a club dedicated to saving our environment for our grand kids."

We use the money we raise to fight for the health of our streams, and that preserves good fishing. Please look at the list of supporters below and thank every one of them for helping us in that fight!
