The annual banquet for Franklin County’s chapter of Pheasants Forever was almost standing-room only Saturday night at the Robinson Fair Building in Preston.
Mark Beckstead, a local board member, said he estimates over 125 people attended the event.
“This was a better turnout than we’ve had for a number of years. In fact, we’ve probably outgrown the Robinson Building and will start looking for another venue for next year’s event,” he said.
Doors opened at 6 p.m. and the dinner started at 7 p.m. It was catered by Scott Northridge, in cooperation with the New York Deli.
“We gave away a number of prizes and had a number of drawings. We had both a live and silent auction. In total we awarded eight guns to adults and youth,” said Beckstead.
“A virtual pheasant hunt game was provided by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. It was a big hit for the youth that attended, as well as some adults.”
