Last July the Cheyenne Bottoms Chapter of Ducks Unlimited (Hoisington) was recognized as one of over 1,500 chapters across the nation to receive the National Chapter Excellence Award. The Cheyenne Bottoms Ducks Unlimited Chapter is comprised of a group of volunteers with ne concern for outdoor resources and have offered their time to increase the number of people volunteering for their chapter, attending their events and raising funds for the mission of “wetlands conservation.”
“The chapter received the silver ranking for their efforts in 2015 and 2016,” said Kim Schneweis, area chairman. This is the 7th year since the chapter re-started in 2010 and they have been holding several events a year.
Annually a sportsman’s social is held in the fall to offer a fun evening out for hunter’s and non-hunters alike. This event is certainly geared toward the hunters as it traditionally falls on the Friday before the opening of the Kansas Pheasant season. The chapter will hold its annual banquet in April.
“We would enjoy seeing you there this spring,” Schneweis said. “The Cheyenne Bottoms chapter would like to take the opportunity to thank the many supporters, donors, and sponsors that make their events successful. As always, we are interested in new folks join our dedicated committee. If you enjoy hunting, love the outdoors, or just want an opportunity to leave your mark on the natural world, feel free to give us a call.” Schneweis can be reached at 620-282-9592 for tickets or more information.
