Things are really rolling on the 35th annual BRTU banquet! The premiums so far are outstanding and there are going to be some unique items on tap. They include a vintage RL Winston 8 foot, 4 weight glass Stalker Rod which is in near mint condition, a spectacular bronze Royal Wulff by bronze artist and legend Mari Bolen, fine art by Monte Dolack and Barbara Michelman, pottery, tackle, dinners, float trips on the Missouri and Bitterroot rivers. More premiums are arriving daily.
Members of the Bitterroot Buggers will be on hand to demonstrate the fly tying skills they learned in this year's class, and we will auction off the flies they tie to help support this program.
The banquet will be on September 26 at the Bitterroot River Inn and tickets are now on sale. See the poster for information.
BRTU banquets are always a wonderful time to see old friends, meet new ones, swap yarns and make plans for next year's fishing. Enjoy a great dinner by Riversong Catering and beverage service by the Banque Club including Bitterroot Brewing brews. Hope to see you there.
This is BRTU’s primary fundraiser and the funds support programs like the children’s program, The Bitterroot Buggers. BRTU is completely a volunteer group, so your help is crucial!
