Pirate-themed fundraiser for Fish & Game Association

Pirates Walk the Plank for Conservation on Feb. 28

Are you prepared to walk the plank?

Pirates Walk the Plank for Conservation is the theme for the annual Wild Game Banquet Fundraiser hosted by the Courtenay and District Fish & Game Protective Association on Feb. 28 at the Florence Filberg Centre.

This Jolly Roger special culinary event is once again catered by Tria Fine Catering. Tickets are $40 each and can be obtained by calling Linda Orr at 250-339-5606 or call the association caretaker (250-338-9122) from Wednesday to Sunday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. There are a limited number of tickets and the fundraiser is open to the public as well as members, so get your tickets early!

The fundraiser supports many projects for the Courtenay and District Fish & Game Protective Association, including several working with Dept. of Fisheries and capture of salmon brood stock in the Trent River to ensure the return of salmon to the river. An annual Region One Kids Camp teaches outdoor recreation and survival skills. Members are involved in elk relocation programs as well.

The Fish and Game Association is also very active in supporting the community with bursaries for graduates, the YANA Christmas Tree Auction, the Annual Spring Cleanup, the Fishing Forever Program, the BC Family Fishing Weekend and much more. In addition, there are various outdoor recreational activities available for members and guests.

The evening will offer raffles, silent and live auctions with many prizes (or booty) donated by supportive and always generous local merchants and businesses. Any businesses interested in supporting the fundraiser with a donation can contact Gail at 250-339-4707 or   via email at the-office@courtenayfishandgame.org.

Members are currently canvassing for prize donations and leaving local merchants with request letters and we are most appreciative of the support we receive each year.

Avast, come out for an enjoyable evening. Dress as a pirate and you may win the best male or female costume prize.  Shiver me timbers, it is going to be great!
