Reel and Rod/Reel Combo Raffle
Norm and Donna Mabie Memorial Scholarship
The Mesilla Valley Flyfishers was founded in April of 1987 and incorporated in 1991.  One of the primary founders was Norm Mabie, who with a group of others, put all the pieces together and served as the club's first president.  Unfortunately, Norm passed away in 2004.  The Club established an endowed scholarship at New Mexico State University in Normís name.  Normís wife, Donna passed away in 2017 and the Club recently added her name to the scholarship.

The Mabie family recently put the family home up for sale.  David Mabie, one of the Mabie sons, gave the Club four reels and several rods that belonged to the family.  The Board decided to raffle two reels and two rod/reel combos in a raffle like the one that was held for the Mabie Legacy Rod.  All of the proceeds will be added to the Scholarship Fund.  The reels have been used by Norm, but they are in like-new condition.  The rods are like new also and one of the most beautiful rods that Norm made.  The reels are a Ross San Miguel #2 reel and a Ross San Miguel #3 reel.  The two rod/reel combos are a Ross Gunnison #1 reel with a Fisher 4wt, 8'9" rod and a custom 9-ft 5-weight Fisher rod with a Ross Gunnison #2 reel.

We are reaching out to our out-of-town members to have an equal opportunity to participate in these raffles.  There is a separate raffle board for each reel and rod/reel combo.  Each board has 100 squares and each square is $5.  You can buy as many squares as you want.  You can pick your own squares, or we can pick squares for you.  Your name will go in each square that you buy.

The winner of each item will be picked when all of the squares of that board are sold.  We hope that we can pick all of the winners at the Fly Fishing Film Tour at Ardovino's Desert Crossing in Sunland Park, NM on November 11th.  You can donate online via the MVFF PayPal website or mail a check of $5 for each square to Mesilla Valley Flyfishers, Inc., P.O. Box 2222, Las Cruces, New Mexico 88004-2222.  Tell us which square(s) you want and give us a telephone number to contact you.
