Ponoka Fish and Game News

Here is a recap of 2013 events at the club.

Here is a recap of 2013 events at the club. We started out the year as usual with our Banquet and Awards night in February. Then all of our summer events such as archery, trap shooting, rifle range events and the rifleman’s rodeo labor day weekend. We also had horn measuring in December and wound up the year working a casino in Red Deer for our fund raiser to end the years events for 2013. Our membership grew quite a bit in 2013 to 650 members total. We have had over 200 member renewals at the January meeting, so looks like we are off to a good start for 2014.

Our 2014 year starts out with nominations for officers. The February 6th meeting will be our general meeting and elections.  Our Banquet and Awards night will be February 1st at the Stagecoach Saloon.  Tickets are going fast so best you contact someone if you want to reserve a table or to get individual tickets.

The Big Game trophy winners are: Brian Prins – Blair Dowling – Rob Johnson – Brian Walcheske – Keenan Haines – Daniel Roy – Darrin Carlson and Leonard Davis. The trophy winners can pick up their trophies at the Banquet presentation.

The Fish and Game conference will be in Ft. McMurray this year. We will be sending delegates to this yearly event, so will let you know what is happening when we get back.

Looks like it would be a good year to have an archery snowshoe contest if there any brave souls gritty enough (not me). Just a suggestion. We will start our regular yearly events as soon as the snow melts. That could be a while yet.

We are in the process of getting a new trap machine, so should be a little less stressful than trying to keep the old one operating.

Here’s wishing everyone a summer of fun. I will let you know what is going on after we get back next month.

See you at the banquet on February 1st.

Robert Greene,

Publicity Chairman
