The Ormsby Sportsmen's Association (OSA) is a local sportsmen's organization for hunters and fishermen. It has about 300 members. In addition it is also one of the oldest sportsmen's clubs in the state, having been founded in August, 1945.
On Dec. 4, OSA will hold its big, annual banquet at the Carson Nugget Convention Center.
If you have never attended this fun-filled evening, it could be well worth attending.
That banquet, which is expected to attract about 125 persons, will begin with a no-host cocktail hour at 6:30 p.m.
The cocktails will be followed by a buffet dinner at 7:30, door prizes, raffle, live auction, serious presentations, "burn awards," etc.
All OSA members, their families, friends and anyone else interested in attending are cordially invited to attend.
The cost is $16 per person.
Included in the evening's activities are a number of "burn" awards which are presented to some selected poor souls who have goofed up in the Great Outdoors during the year.
Those "burn" awards are highlighted by the less-than prestigious "You Screwed Up" award, which is presented to the club member with the biggest goof-up of the year.
In addition, there will be awards for winners in the various fishing derby categories, the "Big Buck" contest and the always popular "Sure Shot" award.
Also included on the evening's agenda will be the introduction of the club's new president for 2000 and three newly-elected directors.
Here's a chance to mingle with fellow hunters and fishermen, to enjoy a great dinner and to win some nice raffle or auction prizes.
And, as a bonus, you can also cheer on the various award winners, both the serious and the not-so-serious categories.
It's a great way to have a lot of fun on a cold, wintry, early December night in Carson City.
Mark it on your calendar and plan to attend. You won't be sorry.
