Irvine Lake 2018 Wild Game Feed

We’re getting close.  Just 10 more weeks and the 50th Annual Wild Game Feed at Irvine Lake will be in full swing.  Friday, September 21, 2018 was marked on my calendar within 5 minutes of purchasing a 2018 calendar.  And I’ve already gathered everything together I’m planning to bring—well, almost.  I’ll wait on the ice until the last minute.  But you get the idea.  I’m ready.

How about you?  Did you order your tickets the day the order forms came out?  I hope so.  I’ve said many times before that to hesitate is to miss the Feed.  And every year I receive many emails from guys who waited only to be turned down when they finally did send in their order forms.  In over twenty years of attending this event, I’ve watched the ticket sell-out date move closer to the form mail-out date.  It used to be a couple of months, if they sold out at all.  Now they will sell out in just a few days.  If you didn’t get a ticket, I will miss you, but hopefully this will be incentive to order your tickets as soon as the form arrives next year.

To illustrate just how quickly your order needs to be placed, last year the order forms were a couple of weeks later than usual arriving, and everyone was in such a panic they ordered immediately.  One person contacted me and stated he waited from the time he received his form on Tuesday until payday on Friday to place his order.  He was too late.  Order forms need to be mailed immediately upon receipt.  I can’t stress this enough.

I’ve been told to expect great things for this year’s Feed, but I expect that every year.  And every year the organizers manage to deliver.  I can’t wait to find out what they were referring to, because it has to be great to top last year’s Feed. 

See you at the Feed!

  1. If the ticket has been misplaced, is there a way to verify purchase at the gate

  2. The short answer is "I don't know." I don't have a phone number of the person(s) in charge of the purchaser list, so keep searching for the ticket. If you don't find it, come to the Feed anyway. I'll be hanging out with the gate keepers before the Feed, and I'll help you find out the answer. I'm certain there is a list somewhere. See you at the Feed.

    1. Just email me at fineleatherart@yahoo.com and I will add you to my mailing list for a copy of my ticket order form when I receive it in late May or early June.
