Alberta Fish and Game Trophy Ball held April 27

On April 27 the Alberta Fish and Game Trophy Ball was held at the Polish Hall in Edmonton as it has been for several years. Different clubs are trophy sponsors for different animals and fish that were harvested by Fish and Game members during the year.

The Ponoka Fish and Game Association sponsors the Rocky Mountain White Fish trophy as we have for several years. We send a couple of people each year to represent our club as presenters of the trophy.

This is the first year in the past five that a big snow storm wasn’t coming down or raining so hard you could hardly see to drive. We did have snow on Saturday morning but it cleared up and dried up and was very nice the rest of the day and night.

Things are looking up. There was a new provincial record brook trout caught out of Edith Lake by Brad Pachipinski. It measured 60.33 cm. Nice catch Brad.

We are busy upgrading our club house for the summer season. It should be ready for our guest rentals for the summer.

Archery and trap are now going every week and every one is welcome to come out and shoot. Trap is on Tuesday nights and archery is on Wednesday nights.

There is an archery shooting contest on May 25. For more information call Scott Rarick.

Our kids’ camp will be July 8 to 12.

We are working a casino in Red Deer on August 31 and Sept. 1. Anyone who would like to help out please call Beth Sykes at 403-783-4608 to volunteer your services.

We are working on building a camp kitchen at our Gull Lake property this summer. We can use lots of volunteer help for this when we start building. Just give a call and we will give you a date when we are going to start.

The animals should be having little ones about now and the ducks and geese should be hatching. It will be nice to see them about.

It is time to plant the garden so better get busy. See you soon.
