Tickets for the Steve Sobieniak Bamboo Rod Raffle are now available.

Steve passed away last year from cancer. Even as his health declined, he got the strips planed and glued. After his passing, a number of folks including Ray Ricketts, Dave Norling, Dave Schaefer and Mike Lewellen and Lance Prado of the Root River Rod Company – Steve’s shop – completed the rod. Its a beautiful rod – 7 1/2 feet, 2 tips, made to Steve’s taper.

We’ll sell tickets at our next chapter meeting (March 6th), at Great Waters (March 17-19 @ Hamline, St Paul) and you can also purchase by mail.  All sales are by cash or check only.

To purchase by mail, send a check – made out to Hiawatha TU  and a self-addressed stamped envelope (to make life easier for our Treasurer and to ensure they go where you wanted them to) to :

Hiawatha Trout Unlimited
P.O. Box 7064
Rochester, Mn 55903

Each ticket is $10 and only 500 will be sold.  The drawing will be held at 7pm, Aprill 22nd at Sylvan Brewing in Lanesboro, MN.
