The Lake Windermere District Rod and Gun Club kept its promise once again by dovetailing a most incredible gala evening with all the wild trim on Saturday, February 21st.
Konig Meats and Anne Riches respective culinary teams prepared a most delicious spread of delicate meats, cheeses, fresh fruits and veggies to a hungry, packed-house of outdoor adventurers and nature enthusiasts. Other highlights of this community-shared event included a live auction lead by Tex Lortscher; game trophy presentations featuring what may have been a record number of youth entries being entered and awarded; plus multiple draws, barrels and silent auction activities all supporting our annual photo contest and interactive social evening. And if that wasnt enough, DJ Dustin Murray kept the crowd dancing with all our favourite tunes well past the midnight hour!
It is this fundraiser event that propels the Rod & Gun Club into its annual array of environmental, recreational and wildlife ventures. As a club in existence since 1919, we are both proud and humbled by the generosity of our local valley businesses and families. With this kind of community support, the club, its members, and the general public as a whole benefit from such worthy causes as, for example, the upcoming Abel Creek Restoration Project commencing in August 2015.
To summarize, club president Rick Hoar was quoted as saying early the next morning: I cant wait for next year!
