Once again the West Rainy River District Lions Club will be holding their District-wide Pontoon Boat Raffle. This year in conjunction with Nestor Falls Marine & Sport, the First Prize will be a Princecraft Vectra 21 LT Pontoon Boat package, c/w 115 hp Mercury EXLPT Pro motor valued at $47,900. Princecraft, a premium boating product is made in Canada and like all pontoon boats is in very limited supply this year. We are very fortunate to have obtained this unit and it will be on display at various locations across the District this season.

Second prize will be a gift certificate from Nestor Falls Marine & Sports for use towards Lowrance Electronics.

Third Prize also from Nestor Falls Marine & Sports is a gift certificate of $500 for use towards Rod & Reel angling combos.

Tickets for the Pontoon Raffle are now on sale for $20 each at all businesses in Rainy River and many other locations in Stratton, Morson, Emo, Devlin and Fort Frances as well as Nestor Falls and north. Tickets can also be purchased from WRRD Lions Club at Box 63 Rainy River or online by e-transfer through WRRDLIONSTICKETS@GMAIL.COM . Only 6000 tickets maximum will be sold.
