    Default Ducks Unlimited Banquet???

    I am thinking about going to the DU banquet in Charleston in February with my girlfriend. Has anyone gone to these events and can et me know what it is like? I have never been to one and really know nothing about them. I have heard they give away guns, dogs, pictures, and other things. Is this stuff true? Also what is the dress code for these events?

    Any info would be great!

    No...They have auctions for them or you usually buy raffle tickets, but everything has a pretty nice pricetag with it. Not really sure about if there is an actual "dresscode" but I have always just worn khakis and a button up shirt, but I have seen people in jeans and t-shirts too...so I dont think it really matters.

    On a side note.....the ticket to get you in the door also gets you more than enough alcohol to drink, so thats a plus...

    I've been going to this one for the past 8 years. It has been getting more and more popular and expensive the last 5 years though. I believe tickets are now $60 a person in advance and $75 at the door. A ton of people show up since it is tied into the SE Wildlife Expo. Don't plan on winning anything unless you bring a ton of cash since there are some big spenders there. Food and drinks are included with the ticket (Open Bar!) as well as a one year membership to DU. Overall it is a good time so invite all your friends. Dress is not that formal since it is in the Visitor Center Bus Shed and is outside, so dress warm since it is usually a little cold.

    Standing room only last year and at 120 a couple for oysters and such. Plus trying to find a room that weekend (Valentine's Weekend) in Charleston. GOOD LUCK you will drop some serious coinage, but hey if it gets you some booty then whatever helps you sleep at night.

    Word to the wise, your ribs are gonna hurt a little from getting elbows from your girlfriend. You get your raffle tickets from scantily clad hookers. Your eyes will wonder, I guarantee it.
