Dear UBI Members,
The 2021 UBI banquet has been canceled due to concerns over the pandemic. UBI President Tim Nuss asked me to convey the difficult decision made by the board of directors tonight in a special meeting. Thank you to all of the members that provided your opinions on this topic when we asked.
We are determined to make 2021 a great year for the UBI! We will soon be announcing additional events for traditional bowhunters in Illinois. The UBI will also be creating fundraisers to help offset the loss of revenue from the banquet.
Please consider a direct donation to the UBI to help support the organization through the next year. You may donate directly on this website.
