The Dragoon Trail Chapter is again sponsoring the Ankeny Area Whitetails Unlimited banquet on October 20th at the Vittoria Lodge. Half the proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to support our youth programs at the chapter! Please consider attending and bring your friends!

Whitetails Unlimited is the nation’s premier nonprofit whitetail organization. Our mission is to raise funds in support of educational programs, wildlife habitat enhancement and acquisition, and the preservation of the shooting sports and hunting tradition for future generations.

This fundraising event will include a dinner, auction, and prizes with a wide array of products such as firearms, outfitter packages, hunting and outdoor-related equipment, artwork, and collectibles only available at WTU events.

I'm late getting this post up, but I wanted to thank the leadership and members for allowing local area Cub Scouts and parents access to the Chapter facilities for their Cub Scout Day Camp at the end of June. I'm a new Ikes member and also helped run an activity station at the camp -ham radio. The kids had a great time and the adults were very impressed with the Chapter's facilities. It's no doubt an inconvenience to members for the range to be closed for three days. I can tell you from my experience that the Cub Scouts enjoyed the 3 day camp and it was a fantastic setting for their outdoor activities.
