NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation will host the 17th annual Duck Classic Banquet on Thursday (Dec. 12) at the First National Bank Arena.
Doors will open at 5:00 p.m. and dinner starts at 5:30 p.m. Adult tickets are $50 and may be purchased in advance at DNW Outdoors or online at www.duckclassic.com.
Duck Classic draws in thousands from a 10-state radius and has garnered national attention and support – all to benefit the six free programs of NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation.
In addition to the dinner, banquet attendees will have the opportunity to participate in various raffles and both silent and live auctions. Items this year include hunting trips, a lab puppy, jewelry, gift baskets, duck blinds, a four wheeler and more.
The hunt will take place Friday (Dec. 13th) and is based on a scoring system; points are allotted for types and amounts of ducks. When the hunt is over, each team will check-in, and the dice are rolled to determine the value of each duck and the team with the most points and the earliest recorded score will be awarded as the winner.
The event provides participants the opportunity to hunt some of the top spots in the area that otherwise may not be accessible.
