NEW THIS YEAR: banquet catering featuring wild game!! Is your freezer a little crammed? If you’re interested, we’re solicitating donations of any form of game meat (5 pounds or greater) that we’ll incorporate into the banquet feast. The conference planning committee thinks this will be a fun feast and hope you will enjoy it too!
