I didn’t know or appreciate the impact of the Banquet until I worked on it last year. I just knew it was a lot of fun. Banquet proceeds support pretty much everything we do, outside of fishing trips:   the Red Barrington Scholarship fund, monthly meetings, conservation, fishing derbies,  fishing classes, etc.

This year tickets will be $50 per person, $25 for ages 12 and under.   Included will be 2 drink tickets, same as last year.   Registration will be via the NKFF website or by sending a check to NKFF at 2335 Buttermilk Crossing, #300, Crescent Springs, KY  41017.  You will also be able to reserve raffle tickets via the website, then pay for them upon arrival at the Banquet. (Not allowed to pay for the raffle tickets in advance due to KY Gaming regs.)   If you register for the Banquet prior to midnight on October 6 AND reserve raffle tickets at the time of registration,  you will automatically be entered into a raffle for a Black Ogio Travel Bag with the new NKFF logo embroidered on it.

Early raffle ticket reservation will help us have guest packets available upon arrival.   You are, of course, encouraged to buy more tickets at the Banquet itself.

In terms of donations, the Banquet Committee itself is hard at work contacting fly fishing providers, such as fly-shops, guides, restaurants, and equipment manufacturers, many of whom have been very generous and supportive over the years.  And we, in turn, try to support them.

Our main source of donations is, of course, Club Members.   Something new this year is the Banquet Wish List.   The Banquet Page of the NKFF website will list things that would be really good raffle prizes.   It is our hope that it will make it easier for members to choose something from the list, decide what to donate, and/or prompt other ideas.  As in the past, there will also be a button for cash donations.

This year we are also navigating the new sales tax law, 6% on many of the things we do.   You may notice different raffle table groupings, depending on what is taxable and what is not.  For example, there might be a separate raffle table for guide trips. We understand those are not subject to sales tax, but registration fees and raffles of goods are.

Lastly, we very much appreciate Members’ participation, support and attendance and hope that everyone is getting to fish as often as possible.
