Track Chair Campaign 2018 ~~~ Thank you to all our Applicants-- If you were not chosen, please reapply next year. Jamie's goal is to keep it going..... maybe we will have the funds to give a way 3 next year! :) A HUGE thank you to our guests that attend our fundraiser in February. The supporters of our club, our members that are constantly opening their wallets to support the many projects we do year round.
Congratulations to Tara Miller and Jordan Simon for winning the track chair campaign. This years marks the 3rd and 4th chair the Northwest Sportsman's Club has gifted a Disabled Sportsman a track chair. Our goal with this campaign is to give mobility to an outdoorsman that loves to hunt, fish or spend time in the outdoors as much as we do; but no longer can because of the loss of their limbs.
A few words from Tara Miller;
….What a great day!! Can't wait to get out and see what this chair can do!! It will definitely change my experience outdoors!!
….Thank you #NWSC for this amazing gift!! We appreciate all you have done and do for the disabled sportsmen and women!!

A few words from Jordan Simon;
....Thank you so much to everyone for the amazing chair! I am going to get this thing dirty tomorrow!
....I cant wait to drag my deer behind this thing!
....Thank you so much to my buddy Dave for sending me the application!
....Words can't express how thankful I am to all of you that made this possible!
Two years ago, I had the idea that our nonprofit conservation group in Spokane could raise the money to donate an action track chair to a disabled sportsman who no longer has the mobility to do what we all love to do. In 2017 we gave away our second chair to a very well deserving man. I am so thankful to be a board member for such a wonderful organization who has the power to give back to our community in such a wonderful way. I can't wait to give away our third track chair in 2018. Jamie Belknap
A message from our 2016 winner Boone Bartlome
One thing is for sure, we never know what good or not so good things life will throw at us. Being chosen as the recipient of a Track Chair is beyond good – it is Unbelievable! My life has changed drastically since my injury. I am appreciative of all the people who continue to help me make the best of it. This effort by your club makes more of a difference in my life than most realize. To be given a gift like this is so humbling. The kindness and generosity of so many people have made me a very lucky guy. Thank you so much for such an amazing gift!
A message from our 2017 winner Doug Nachtical
I am having a hard time putting into words how appreciative my family and I are for the generous gift that the NWSC has given me. This past fall I received the track chair. I was able to be at the fence line watching my daughter compete at the National level in Rodeo, I have been able to help on my Ranch. This Spring will be the first time I have ever been able to join my oldest daughter Spring Turkey hunting. My goal this spring is to finally be able to go fishing on a dock. The NWSC has been extremely generous and I am proud to be affiliated with such a group. Thank you from all the Nachtigal family! Doug & Robin Nachtigal
A message from Fundraiser Chairman, Board member Theresa Belknap
The track chair is one of the most rewarding projects the NWSC does. Jamie has taken then reins of this project and put her personal touch on the fundraising efforts. At our last fundraiser our members and guests came together to support this worthy cause by raising over $17,700 in one evening. The task of choosing the recipient is not an easy task. The 14-member selection panel our first year only had 3 applicants, our second year we had 24 applicants. As the years go on, and the word gets out, I am sure the number of applicants will continue to grow. Rest assured, we all take this selection process very seriously. Theresa Belknap
