It seems like such a long time ago that we were at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa for the 2020 “Into the Wild” auction program!   We are pleased to be able to relate that we will be back in Traverse City March 3, 4 & 5, 2022 for the “Adventures Wild” auction program!

 

A lot has changed since March 2020!  Most of you are aware that the Northern Michigan Chapter SCI was dissolved by its membership in June 2020. The DSC Great Lakes Regional Chapter was established in January 2021 and has received IRS approval as both a tax exempt (DSC Great Lakes Regional Chapter) and a tax-deductible organization (Great Lakes Regional Sporting Foundation, Inc.). Plans for a 2021 traditional auction program were immediately developed.  Unfortunately, Covid 19 made a 2021 in-person auction program impossible.  While a successful virtual auction was conducted in March 2021 as an alternative, it just wasn’t the same as being back in Traverse City!

 

Members of the Chapter’s Board of Directors have been working with the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa for several months to be able to make the in-person 2022 “Adventures Wild” auction program a reality.  Planning progress has been substantial.  We will be back at the Resort March 3, 4 & 5, 2022 with our traditional auction program!  Names have changed but the basic auction program and format will remain the same as in the past.

We are acutely aware of price increases on virtually everything since March 2020.  The Board of Directors have been diligent in their efforts to control costs for the 2022 Adventures Wild program and to keep ticket prices as low as possible.  Unfortunately, it is not possible to keep ticket prices for the event at the same level as 2020. The basic ticket price for the three-day event has been set at $250 each.  Corresponding increases for single day event tickets have also been put into place.  Raffle ticket packages have been held at 2020 levels.  A ticket order form that specifies ticket costs for the 2022 Adventures Wild program is attached to this communication.  Tickets may be ordered by U.S. mail, on-line on the Chapter’s website (www.dscgreatlakes.com) or by telephone (248-521-1524).

 

In addition to the ticket price increase, there are two additional cost reduction measures that have been approved by the Board of Directors: (1) all credit card purchases will be subject to a 3% service charge from this point forward, and (2), the Friday and Saturday evening banquets will feature a cash bar only.    These two measures have been adopted to keep the basic ticket price increase to the lowest level possible.

A block of rooms at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa has been reserved for Adventures Wild attendees.  Rooms may be reserved by attendees at a discount rate by going to the resort’s website and entering the code DSC2022; going to the Chapter’s website; or, by calling 248-521-1524. Attendees wishing to stay at the resort may choose from a room in the hotel ($99 per night) or in the Tower ($139 per night).  All room billings will be done by the Grand Traverse Resort and will include the Resort and Visitor’s Bureau fees and taxes in addition to the basic room charges identified above.

 

A number of new outfitters and, a significant majority of past auction donors, have committed to donating and exhibiting during Adventures Wild 2022.  We are still working to build the strongest auction programs available to ensure that auction participants have a wide variety of quality auction items to choose from.  We are hoping that you will be able to join us in Traverse City, March 3, 4 & 5, 2022!  In the event that you cannot make it to Traverse City this year, the Friday and Saturday auctions will be streamed live to the internet with on-line bidding availability.
