While I served on the UMV Fairboard for 20 fairs/years, this was one event I always looked forward to working at. It gave me an opportunity to see and visit with some great community members. The United Sportsmen of Williston is having their annual banquet on Saturday, March 25 at the Agri Sports Complex at the UMV Fairgrounds. This ambitious group does a lot to promote safe hunting, fishing, and fun outdoor activities for everyone to enjoy.

The United Sportsmen of Williston is a local chapter of the United Sportsmen of North Dakota. They strive to be a link between all the local sportsmen groups in the area for legislative networking. They have established their feeding programs and are constantly sharing ideas to make outdoor activities fun and interesting. Williston's group has developed its wildlife feeding program of raising a small grain crop, bailing it, and supplying the grains to supplement natural feed for wildlife. The group works extremely hard to maintain our local facilities such as the Lewis & Clark WMA rifle range and boat ramp. They even host and provide input to the local Game & Fish advisory meetings. If that's not enough, they participate in youth programs such as the Hooked on Fishing program in the area. I told you they are an ambitious bunch!
