The annual Wild Game Banquet Fundraiser hosted by the Courtenay and District Fish and Game Protective Association is back.

This special culinary event will be catered by Tria Fine Catering on Feb. 23 at the Florence Filberg Centre.

Tickets can be obtained by calling Elsie Rogers at 250-338-4420 or members can pick them up from the association caretaker from Wednesday to Sunday from 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

The fundraiser supports many projects for the Courtenay and District Fish and Game Protective Association.

Volunteers were busy this year working in tandem with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans on a multi-year study of spawning behavior of cutthroat trout in the Comox Lake and capture of salmon brood stock in the Trent River to ensure the return of salmon to the river.

In addition to the physical labour of projects, ultimately there is the soul satisfying feeling from providing special fishing days annually for special needs groups including seniors, mentally and/or physically handicapped and youth from the Comox Valley.

Each year, the trout pond also sees 1,000 grandparents, parents and children enjoying themselves fishing on Father’s Day Weekend for the BC Family Fishing event.

Approximately 50 to 100 rods and reels are donated to the children at the end of the weekend. Every July, the association hosts an annual Kids Camp for youngsters to learn and enjoy outdoor recreation and survival skills.

The theme for the 2013 banquet, For Generations to Come, definitely covers the hard work of the volunteers to ensure that the wildlife and outdoor recreation is there for the future.

The evening will present raffles, silent and live auctions with many prizes donated by supportive and always generous local merchants and businesses.

Any businesses interested in supporting the fundraiser with a donation can contact Elsie at 250-338-4420 or the-office@courtenayfishandgame.org.

The Fish and Game Association is 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.

Come out for an enjoyable evening and support a good cause. By enhancing our fish and wildlife stocks through government sponsored programs, promoting sound conservation practices and harvesting limits, we seek to have our renewable fish and wildlife resources for generations to come.

For more information, call 250-338-4420.
