Trout Unlimited auction is Saturday

ALAMOSA — Please come support coldwater fisheries at the Annual SLV Trout Unlimited Benefit Auction on Saturday, April 22nd. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the auction begins at 7 p.m. The auction location is The Barn at La Manzanilla Farm, half a mile north of Alamosa on Hwy 17 on the west side of the road.

The admission fee is $10 with excellent free appetizers provided by Locavores Restaurant and a cash bar with beer and wine. There will be a live and a silent auction, bucket raffles, the famous Catch of the Day contest and the very fun Heads or Tails icebreaker.

Brady Stagner of A and B Auction services is back as the auctioneer. Brady always makes this event exciting! Many great items will be featured including a handmade quilt, enticing gift baskets, fishing equipment, stays at local valley hotels, guided and buddy fishing trips on public and private water and much, much more!

New this year will be a poster with accomplishment highlights from the past year and a slide show with photos documenting both projects and fishing.

Please come support the mission of Trout Unlimited, dedicated to the conservation, preservation, and restoration of North America’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds.
