Cabin Fever Day Update
December 31st, 2021
After careful consideration and an evaluation of the current status of the pandemic, Fox Valley Trout Unlimited has made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person event.
With the spread of the Omicron variant in our communities, we have seen other organizations including our Wisconsin State Council of Trout Unlimited, cancel in-person events that are open to the public.
This was a difficult decision as Cabin Fever Day is our primary fundraiser to support conservation and habitat work in the Central Sands Area of Wisconsin, This work is the foundation of Trout Unlimited and is the core of our mission and vision as an organization.
While this is disappointing news, the health safety of those attending the event was a primary factor in our decision-making process and we appreciate your understanding.
Given we have invested a lot of time, effort and financial resources to hold out 2022 event, Fox Valley TU will be hosting a virtual fund raiser that will offer many of the bucket raffle and silent auction prizes in a different format. We are targeting March for the fundraiser so stay tuned to this website for more information in the coming weeks.
We would like to thank all of our guest speakers, exhibitors, vendors and especially those who donated items for our raffles and auctions.
Please stay tuned for more information and we would appreciate your support when we launch our virtual fundraiser!
On a positive note, we will be moving forward with our Scott Grady Bamboo Rod & Reel package raffle on Saturday the 15th of January as shown below. Please consider buying tickets for this amazing bamboo rod package!
