Duck Dynasty part of Friends of NRA event


Woodward, Okla. — Mann added that Mead Jewelers have also created a pendant for the event. The necklace is a likeness of one that Miranda Lambert wears, which features a pair of crossed, gold pistols with wings, Mann said.

In addition, Woodward artist and musician, Chris Castor has created two works of art, one, which he plans to present to the cast of Duck Dynasty at the Saturday evening banquet event and the other to be auctioned off, Mann said.

Saturday, beginning at 3 p.m. until 5 p.m., Duck Dynasty cast will be featured and available to the public for an autograph session at the Woodward Conference Center, Mann said.

The autographs will cost $10, which goes directly to the Northwest Oklahoma Friends of NRA for the continuation of their fund raising, Craighead said.

"Those who want to show up for autographs can bring something they want autographed, but no firearms will be autographed," he said. "There will be T-shirts and hats available for sale to have autographed if they want to buy one."

The Saturday evening banquet, which will feature Duck Dynasty, as well as Entertainment by Woodward songbird, Bobbie Castor and her brother Chris Castor has already been sold out, Craighead said.

Doors will open for that banquet at 5:30 p.m., he said.
