During each Texas BOW Workshop, Friends of Texas BOW hosts a Silent Auction fundraiser.

All BOW participants in the workshop are welcome to bring new or gently used items on Friday evening for the auction. Past donations have included books, paintings, jewelry, clothing and, of course, outdoor gear for camping, hiking, fishing, hunting and more. If you are an artist or crafter, homemade items are always popular!

Raffles are generally held at each BOW workshop as well. One for a "Guaranteed Spot" for the next BOW and another for larger outdoor equipment.
As of 2017, Lifetime Memberships are available. Each Lifetime Member will received a limited edition Osprey backpack. 

Annual Membership:   $25.00
Lifetime Membership:  $250.00

We accept cash, checks and credit card for membership payments at each BOW workshop.

You may also download the membership form here and mail with payment to FOTBOW, P.O. Box 21, Brandon, Texas 76628.
