My order form for tickets to the 2014 Annual Wild Game Feed in Irvine, CA has arrived! Last year I received several hundred requests for tickets from some who were just learning about the Feed, some who didn’t order tickets when the form arrived, and some who just forgot to order (how could anyone forget?). The reality is the Feed was sold out of tickets by about July 1st, and this year they expect to sell out even earlier. I missed many friends last year simply because they hesitated to order their ticket when the form arrived. Unfortunately, I do not have tickets other than my own. I am just a purchaser like everyone else.
That being said, this is the biggest Wild Game Feed I’ve ever heard of, and it’s the best one I’ve ever attended. The food is a carnivore’s utopia, and it never runs out. The beer is unlimited, and it never runs out. Last year I arrived with 78 cigars, gave away about 125, and came home with 88—a gain of ten—after consuming 6 myself. I met many old friends, made many new friends, and I was still meeting and making friends when the sun went down and it was time to go home.
I value my friends from the Wild Game Feed. We come from many different walks in life, and it doesn’t matter. Male (required), old (like me), young (but at least 21), rich, not rich, just named Rich, Wall Street, sanitation worker, bottle collector—at the Feed, we are equal, and we are friends, and we will remain friends. We are there for only a handful of reasons. Fundraising for charities is the main reason, followed closely by food, beer, cigars, and old/new friends. Some are there for the drawings for the great prizes, and some are there for the competitions. But all are there to have fun.
The organizers know what they are doing, and every year I’m amazed to see how smoothly it works from start to finish. At no time does this event appear to become chaotic or disorganized, even with more than 1,300 guests. Each member of the Annual Wild Game Feed has a specific job, and it always gets done. It takes a year of planning by these dedicated men to pull it off, and ‘pull it off’ they do. While it is hard work (for them), it is also great fun (for everyone else), and it is a terrific revenue source for various charities. To the organizers, I thank you.
Remember to order your ticket as quickly as you can. They will sell out.
