The 2014 Driftless Trout Unlimited Fundraiser is scheduled for the evening of May 3 in the upper level of T-Bocks in Decorah.

Rumor has it, a trout carving by local artist Curt Jones will be auctioned.

As in past years, your $20 admission ticket will help provide important support for trout stream habitat improvement projects in northeast Iowa.

-In addition, your ticket stub (or 6 tickets for $100!) will be entered in the Grand Prize Raffle Drawing for the "Ultimate Fishing Bicycle" complete with fishing gear.  (You need not be present to win.)
-A tasty buffet supper will be provided for all attendees.

We hope you and your friends and family will be able to join us on Saturday, May 3rd at T-Bock's Sports Bar & Grill "Upstairs".  The reception will begin at 5:00pm and the buffet supper will be served at 6:00pm.
