    A group of guys and myself have started a QDMA chapter in SW MO. Dr. Grant Woods will be speaking about CWD. The banquet is at the the Market 116 event venue in Buffalo, MO on Sept 16th. Giving away guns, along with raffles, and auction. Dinner and a years subscription/membership to QDMA is all part of the ticket . Cost is $45 or $60 for a couple. Should be a good time. You can call me at 417-268-8277 or send a message on here if you would like more details.

    Sorry I forgot the days in the original thread. It is Sept. 16th. Lots of items being given away, raffled and auctioned. Guns, knives, crossbow, pictures, ect. Dr. Woods will be there at 5 to talk to people before we start the banquet. Then we will eat and he will give his talk on CWD. Should be a really good event. We are trying to raise money to maybe purchase equipment for the members to use and do some training and events for kids in the future. If you has a group that wanted to do an 8 person table it is higher but there is a separate gun drawing for that table. Our table is getting a tc venture 270 wsm. You can pick the caliber.

    Either way but I'm trying to get as many as I can sold ahead of time so we don't have too big a line getting in. I'd be happy to meet up with you. I drive all over down here.

    I'm pretty sure everyone will be glad I'm not the chef. I think we can figure something out. The new coffee shop has some vegan meals I think and I'm sure I can get them to bring some over.

    Looks like the wife and I will be attending as well. We can either try to meet up before hand or just purchase tickets at the door.

    Banquet was very nice ! LOTS of people , good talk by Dr Woods , well run .

    Special Thanks To Maddux who tried so very hard to accommodate my Vegan wife ... Don't feel bad my brother I too had to go through advanced "Vegan is not the same as Vegetarian " Pink was very appreciative of your effort and made a point of making sure I thanked you !

    Sat with Ultimate Predator and his wife , always nice to put a face to user name , great people !

    Agree Sully! Nice to meet you and Pink.

    Great crowd and very informative presentation by Dr Woods.

    New QDMA chapter appears to be off to a good start!

    Thank you guys, I hope you had a good time. Sorry we got started late. We had a mix up I guess on the amount of seating that was going to be set up. We were suppose to have 150 set up and it was closer to 100. I was glad that was the only hiccup for a bunch of rookie organizers.

    My thoughts were the raffle tickets were too high. I'd like to find a away to involve more people. I would like to hear anything you all would like to see done different, it's kind of hard to get people to tell you things that need to be different.

    Thanks again for making the trip over!

    Only thing I would suggest for the next one is maybe a larger venue ... I'm a roamer , I like to be able to move around and meet people . The room was a bit small for doing that , felt a little cramped
