Ozark Border Bobwhites Chapter Announces Annual Fund-raiser and Membership Drive

The Ozark Border Bobwhites Chapter has begun planning and preparations for their first fund-raising event, which will be held January 27, 2007, at the Lions Hall, 1816 Krausetown Road, Owensville. The doors will open at 5:30 PM. Tickets are $40 for an individual and include a meal and a one-year membership in Quail Unlimited; couples tickets are $55 and include two meals and a membership. Tickets are available at DC Sporting Goods in Hermann and MFA in Rhineland, or you may call John Knudsen at 573-437-3478 in Owensville or Kyle Lairmore at 573-897-3797 in Linn.

The Ozark Border Bobwhites Chapter was formed in May of this year to serve Maries, Osage, Gasconade and eastern Franklin counties; however the committee has elected to help in other areas as demand dictates. The chapter has set several goals for the upcoming year including establishing an annual youth event and supporting local youth activities dealing with outdoor education, outdoor skills and firearm/hunting safety. They also plan to raise funds to take advantage of a Quail Unlimited/Missouri Department of Conservation habitat program, the Missouri Quail Habitat Initiative (QHI), that provides a dollar match for every dollar the chapter dedicates to the program. QHI funds are used to improve habitat on private property.

In 2005, Quail Unlimited, nationwide, was responsible for $4.1 million dollars in habitat expenditures through chapters, partners and value of seed distributed. A distinctive feature of Quail Unlimited is that local chapters retain a majority of the funds they raise to be spent locally, at the discretion of the local committee. Last year, through the efforts of Quail Unlimited obtaining grants and donations from outside sources, the national average of funds available to local chapters equaled 138% of the funds they raised within their community. Last year, Missouri chapters were responsible for $724,374 in habitat expenditures through chapters, partners and value of seed distributed.

If you are interested in helping with this year’s banquet, becoming a committee member or making a donation, contact Tom Jacquin at 573-486-3168.
