HiCaliber provides a semi-automatic handgun, a Springfield XD9, and one year of free range time at their indoor rifle and pistol range for our golf ball raffle.  Buyers of numbered golf balls for the raffle put their numbered ball in a bucket.  As the Army pilots are leaving, they hover over our 19th hole right behind the clubhouse and dump all of the balls onto the pin.  The ball closest to the pin and whoever has that number wins the prizes provided by HiCaliber.  See a picture on the home page and a rough video on the links page.
