In 2013, many Big Creek enthusiasts requested that we sell shirts with the Big Creek Lodge logo. Although we won't be 'selling' shirts, IAF listened, and developed several shirt options as a thank you gift for donors at the $130+ level.  These great shirts are not for sale--they are strictly appreciation gifts, and even say "Making it Happen" under the logo--distinguishing the wearer as a donor.

We have a selection of Mens/Unisex or Women's 100% cotton polo shirts, or for those who prefer tee-shirts, we also have super-soft, wicking tees.  Click here for details and product photos. The "Donate" page is being updated so you may make a selection for any donation over $130.  Interested, but not sure what do do?

Feb 23, 2014: If you enjoy nostalgia and would like a street-legal fun machine, the 1945 Willys MB Military Jeep raffle may be for you.  We are selling limited raffleJeep right side low res tickets for this great vehicle.  It was delivered to the military on January 16, 1945.  More recently, it served Big Creek Lodge patrons for several summers.  Bruce Parker kindly donated the Jeep to the IAF as a fund-raising item.

The Low-Down:

Tickets are $20 each, and only 400 will be sold.  The Jeep will be on display and tickets will be sold at our breakfast events in 2014, or you can request tickets via raffle@rebuildbigcreek.com.    Drawing will be held by Nov 1, 2014 and will be announced at a Big Creek fund-raising event in Boise (details to be announced this summer).  Winner need not be present to win.  Jeep is in Boise, and winner will be responsible for moving the Jeep to winner's location.  IAF Board of Directors and direct family not eligible.

It is in good working condition, and with current improvements, this ol' trooper is ready to run you around the mountains, the farm or backroads.  It does have improvements, such as a removable front towbar and rear hitch, 12 volt electrical system (vs 6v), turn signals, updated brakes, power takeoff (winch is not connected, but should run a winch), and military-styleJeep front low upholstery.

Tickets are already going fast--10% were sold in the first weekend at the NW Aviation Conference.  If you are worried the tickets will be sold out before you can see us at the breakfast events, then email us at raffle@rebuildbigcreek.com and we'll coordinate with you.

Gov Otter edited

Idaho Governor Butch Otter (right), Russell Westerberg, and County Commissioner Gordon Cruickshank share a moment at Big Creek recently. The Governor and Commissioner were briefed on the rebuild Big Creek project--and our goal to provide a place for the public to connect with the outdoors while being disconnected from the rest of the world.
