Another full house was on hand Friday night at La Place Rendez-Vous for the 24th-annual Ducks Unlimited banquet. As always, the live auction was the highlight of the evening, with a replica Don Cherry jacket fetching the highest bid at $975. A framed, autographed Darryl Sittler Toronto Maple Leafs jersey ended up going for $680. As Friday, Barney Maher announced he’s stepping down as the longtime chair of the DU banquet.
