Ponoka Fish and Game sets sights on awards banquet

The big awards banquet is set for February 2 in Ponoka


Another year has come and gone.

It was an eventful year for the Ponoka Fish and Game Association as we have on going events that carry on from year to year.

We are a not-for-profit conservation education organization administered by volunteers. We could not function without all these valuable people and the many businesses that sponsor us. We offer our sincere thanks to everyone of you.

Our first event of 2019 is going to be our annual awards and banquet night which will be held on Feb. 2nd. Anyone who would like to come to the banquet please call Dave at 403-783-7572 or Leonard at 403-588-2834 for reservations.

Our second event of the new year is our election of club officers and nominations are still open. The election is at the general meeting on Feb. 7.

The trophies for the fish and big game that were harvested in 2018 will be presented at the banquet in February. None of them are mine as the biggest thing I saw for horns was already hanging on somebody else’s wall. Sometimes the game wins and I guess this was their year. Just have to tighten the belt a notch this time.

Wishing you all a prosperous and healthy new year.

Yours in conservation
