Eldorado Game Association

About Us

The Eldorado Game Association is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers from the community of Eldorado, Texas. The organization was established over 30 years ago and has been self-sufficient through the help of our local businesses, ranchers and other generous donors. The Eldorado Game Association hosts its annual Game Dinner on the first Saturday in November each year, which is attended by over 1,000 individuals.

The prizes that bring people out to join us on the 1st Saturday of hunting season are gift certificates, 60+ guns, high quality coolers, a kayak, deer feeders, blinds, hunting accessories and hundreds of other prizes for the outdoorsman.

With proceeds from the 2016 event, the Game Association has donated over $40,000.00 to 4-H and FFA clubs, SCISD for their Athletic Dept, One Act Play and Career Fair, Meals for Friends, Eldorado Ministerial Alliance, Schleicher Co. Child Welfare Board, Team Jorge, Eldorado Events, Eldorado Pride, Schleicher Co. Historical Society, Eldorado Divide SWCD, Eldorado Masonic Lodge and MPact Mission during 2017. In addition, we contributed a $3,000 gift to the new Daily Bread program which provides weekday meals to those in need in our community. We also funded improvements to parking lot lighting at the Civic Center. We were pleased to award four $2,000 scholarships to 2017 SCISD Seniors. We are proud to contribute funding for a county trapper, as well as sponsoring the annual Big Buck Contest for Schleicher Co. hunters.

We are trying to expand the event in order to give more back to the community. We would be grateful if you could sponsor one of our prizes or make a donation to our organization. For more information, please contact Game Association President, Rico Forlano at 325-853-3331 or reply by mail to Eldorado Game Association, PO Box 553, Eldorado, TX 76936. Also, all donor names will be listed on a Prize List handout at the Game Dinner. Sponsorship levels are available as follows and these donors will be recognized on banners at the event: Pope & Young Sponsors -$500-$900, Boone & Crockett Sponsors - $1000 & above. If you plan to participate at these levels, please return your contribution two weeks prior to the event.

Any contribution that you make to help us spread the enjoyment of hunting, preserve the right to continue the use of the outdoors and what it has to offer, and assist us in our support of the community will be greatly appreciated.
