  • Win a Nacoocheee Bend Fishing Trip!

    Hey gang

    An NGTO member (who is very humble and wishes to remain anonomous) has donated a 1/2 day unguided fishing trip at Nacoochee Bend up in Helen, GA. He received this trip from Unicoi Outfitters but decided he would prefer to pass it on to us to help us raise some funds. BTW, Jimmy Harris is in the loop on this and said we had his blessings to use this member's trip to raise some funds! Anyway, rather than just do a "highest bidder" type online auction, we decided to try something different with this one. We are going to let members donate $5.00 bucks to NGTO for a shot at winning the trip. Here are the details:
    • Each $5.00 donation gets your name thrown into a hat (i.e if you donate $5 bucks, you get one shot at winning. $15 bucks, you get three shots at winning, etc).
    • You can donate via two methods: via our convenient $5 dollar Paypal donation link, or sending in a check. Here is a link to our donation page with links to Paypal and the address to mail checks to: http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ngto/join.html#donate
    • Remember to include your NGTO screen name and contact info when sending in your donation so we can contact you when you win the trip!
    The contest starts as soon as I post this thread, and will run for 10 days and end at midnight on June 29th. Any donations received after midnight on June 29th will not count towards the contest. So if you plan to donate via a check, make sure you get it in the mail in time to beat the deadline! On June 30th, our esteemed CFO (the ole man) will put all the names in a hat and his lovely and impartial wife will draw out the winning name. So, if you want a shot at winning a half day trip fishing for big / huge trout up in Helen, here is your chance!

    I would like to personally thank the NGTO member who donated this trip certificate and also to Jimmy Harris and Unicoi Outfitters for all they do to support us here at NGTO. So don't delay, get those $5 dollar donations in by June 29th and I wish you the best of luck in winning the trip!

    Any prize for first donation? Either way what a great opportunity to support a great community.

      Trip is Now a Guided Trip!

      OK folks, this trip just got even better! Our own Julian Byrd has offered to guide the winner for free! Julian knows the Bend well and will make the winner's day on the water that much more memorable. Many thanks to Julian for donating his time and talents to this fund raising effort.

      Don't delay folks, send in your $5 bucks asap for a chance to win this great (and now guided) fishing trip at Nacoochee Bend in Helen.

        Just sent my donation! Was I supposed to specify that it was for the drawing or will y'all just figure it out? I've really been wanting to go to Nacoochee Bend; maybe I'll get lucky!

          No worries Truitt; any donations received between today and June 29th will be included in the raffle drawing. Thanks so much for your support!

                Hey Buck, just curious, is there a time limit on when the trip must be booked and used? I live in N FLA and get to the NGA mountains 2-3 times a year as the real world and wife permit. If I win this, not that I would How long is the certificate good for? donating either way just wanna know.

                  Good question Michael! Jimmy Harris of UO has confirmed that the trip certificates for Nacoochee Bend do not expire. But you must call in advance to let them know when you are coming so they can reserve you a section of the river.

                      I just did a ten spot. Somebody better warn Leroy Brown that Gillseeker is coming.

                        $10 spot from me as well! Maybe I'll win and give the trout a day off from the threat of being caught!
