One of the highlights of the year is the annual GOFC auction and social event, hosted once again by Ed and Marcia Ellett at their beautiful home overlooking Paine’s Prairie. Richard McDavid and family will be continuing the tradition of providing great eats in the form of his renowned Frogmore Stew, along with grilled burgers and hot dogs and all the fixings. The club will provide sodas and water. Wiley Horton will be providing the music and taking requests for people’s favorite tunes.
This is an outside event, so be sure to bring along warm clothes if it’s forecast to be cool and some bug juice if the temperature is mild. Please bring along a dessert to share and any adult beverages.
Of course, the main purpose of this event (other than a fun evening socializing with other club members and enjoying good food) is to raise money for the club by auctioning off items donated by members. So be sure to bring any tackle and outdoor gear or other items you no longer need or use that can be donated for the auction. In addition to these items, we’ll also be auctioning a couple of framed pictures from the CCA banquet, fishing trips donated by members of GOFC’s board and services from club members and sponsors.
If you’ve attended this event before, you already know it’s going to be a great time. If it’s your first time, be sure to mark your calendar for a memorable evening.
