Duck Classic 2015 Album
This year’s banquet, held December 10th at the NEA District Fairgrounds, featured the traditional live and silent auctions, raffles, and even more chances than ever for attendees to win cash and prizes. On the morning of Friday, December 11th, the pre-registered teams participated in a competitive duck hunt involving strategy and a scoring system. Hunters were paired with landowners/hosts that showcased Jonesboro and Northeast Arkansas as a premier duck hunting destination.
Following the hunt, the teams validated their scores at an official duck scoring and awards event held at sponsor location DNW Outdoors Archery Range.
Feedback from hunters, landowners, and local businessmen included, “Great event, great cause; love that the money stays local, looking forward to next year; and Duck Classic was phenomenal!” One hunter, who has participated in Duck Classic for 13 years, stated that it was the best hunt yet.
Proceeds from Duck Classic support the programs of NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation, all of which are free to the community. NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation has a mission to help change lives through the programs and services it supports in Northeast Arkansas. It accomplishes this through five programs, each of which is free to participants: Medicine Assistance Program, HopeCircle, ShareHope, Center for Healthy Children, and Wellness Works.
