Fish and game club Outdoor Show celebrating Courtenay’s Centennial

Annual event goes June 6-7 with lots to do and see for one and all

June is just around the corner and so is the 23rd annual Outdoor Recreation Show of the Courtenay and District Fish & Game Protective Association out at Comox Lake on June 6-7.

The gate opens at 9 a.m. each day and closes at 4 p.m. This popular family community event is generously sponsored by 97.3 The Eagle, Quality Foods and John’s Your Independent Grocer.  Admission and parking is free, they just ask for food bank donations.

As the name says, the Courtenay and District Fish & Game Protective Association is made up of members from Courtenay and the surrounding district and they look forward to celebrating the city’s centennial year.

Exhibits are planned with the era in mind and they will even be on the lookout for visitors in attendance who are 100 years old or more!

Ride a hay wagon from the parking lot to the main grounds or go up to Boomtown, Blackpowder or Shotgun where you can try these shooting sports. There will be interesting exhibits to see such as the latest ATVs, RVs, water sports equipment, children’s activities, lots of food including a pancake breakfast each morning, music, a bake, plant and book sale, and archery.

Watch retriever dogs show their stuff or visit the Eagle geocaching tent and search for special caches on the property. Free hourly prize draws too.

For the first time, the cowboys and gals from Boomtown will be setting up a mock western street on the main grounds this year and performing several shows a day; but you can still visit Boomtown, the tiny frontier town that takes you back in time to the Wild West and you might even end up involved in a hay wagon holdup.

Exhibitors that have not sent in their application form should do so as soon as possible to guarantee space. Information and applications are available at courtenayfishandgame.org or email lmarinus@shaw.ca for show info.
