Having Fun Passing On Our Heritage

Passing On Our Heritage

The AWWC Banquet has been the annual fundraiser for the McBride Conservation Fund Foundation that has raised more than $820,000 and awarded more than 400 grants to outdoor conservation organizations, many of which are involved in passing the hunting and fishing heritage onto the next generation.
In 1984, the Austin Woods and Waters Club board of directors created the McBride Foundation. In 1988, it became a 501c(3) non-profit tax-exempt charitable organization. Club members contribute to the Foundation throughout the year, but the annual Banquet held in the fall is the signature event for the Foundation.
This autumn rendezvous is an occasion to share rich outdoor experiences with friends, and make some new ones while give something back to the future of hunting and fishing.
The event includes a dinner, chances to purchase great sporting items and hunts not available elsewhere, play games and chance your luck with raffles. A large variety of prizes are offered including hunting and fishing expeditions, taxidermy gift certificates, outdoor gear, electronic gadgets used in the outdoors, gizmos and toys for big boys and girls as well as gear for the younger generation. Hundreds of donated items from area merchants are auctioned, raffled, or distributed as door prizes following dinner.


The Austin Woods and Waters Club is committed to the growth of this fund to help preserve for future generations the outdoor activities that we all cherish.

$25 Heads or Tails

Tito's Vodka Cooler


Heads or Tails is an interactive game of choice and chance where the last guest standing will win a Tits's custom cooler full of Tito swag!

Purchase an opportunity to participate and receive a bead necklace. This game is fast and fun! Purchase multiple necklaces so you can stay in the game if you get knocked out.

How it works: The auctioneer calls for Heads or Tails participants to stand up. Then participants select either “heads” or “tails” by putting their hands on their heads — or their tails! The auctioneer flips a coin and announces whether the coin came up heads or tails. Those participants whose choice matches the coin flip get to stay standing — everyone else sits down.

The auctioneer continues asking participants to select “heads” or “tails,” then flipping the coin, eliminating more players until only one player is left standing. This is the winner!

Participants must be present to play.
