Fish and Game Association ‘gits ready for Western Days

The Courtenay and District Fish and Game Protective Association ain’t squatting on their spurs for long.

They are gittin’ ready for the 19th annual Outdoor Recreation Show with a theme of Western Days. This year’s show takes place June 4 and 5.

There is no admittance fee, but donations of non-perishable food will be collected for the Comox Valley Food Bank. Each day starts with a pancake breakfast and burgers or hot dogs are available throughout the day.

As well as exhibits, try shooting a cowboy’s six-shooter, ride in a helicopter, or have a cool one in the beer garden while listening to live foot-stompin’ music. Bring the younguns and have a rootin’ tootin’ good time.

Inside or outside spaces are available for $75 for the two-day event. So any merchants or businesses who are interested in placing an exhibit at the show should head’ em up and move’ em out and contact us.
