I've never gone to a NWTF banquet but I did attend the Rome banquet. They had a bunch of items up for auction both regular auction and silent auction. They had several things you could buy raffle tickets for. They demonstrated the reason for the fund raiser, which in Rome it was for the school system to get an archery program started. A good time was had by all and even the people drinking did not get obnoxious. It was very nice. I wish I could go to the one in Carrollton next week.
