The event was held on Saturday, March 29th, 2008 at Hoots Cafe in White Bird, Idaho and attracted a fabulous crowd of fun-loving members and public supporters of the club – all who were eager to land a chance at winning one of the great prize giveaways. The crowd also was very generous in their bids on items that were auctioned including a beautiful log home bird house, several Harley picnic cooler bags, desserts galore and all kinds of great tools and household items for both guys and gals. There were also plenty of small door prize giveaways throughout the evening.

This year marked the 10 year anniversary of the Idaho Pathfinders Association, founded in 1998 by Dean Heckman and Brodie Robinette, both of White Bird. They and their have devoted 10 years to the cause of keeping trails open, and have tirelessly worked on trails, attended meetings, and generally did what they had to do to keep the club alive and expanding through the years, and performing the deeds that are enjoyed by the rest of us. As a gift of appreciation to Dean and Brodie, IPA rewarded them with nice jackets sporting the IPA logo and personalized with their names, during the Family Fun Night. Without their sheer determination and drive, the IPA would not be where it is today, over 300 members strong. Thanks Dean, Brodie, Brenda and Kelly, for all you’ve done over the years!
