Special to The Record

Holy elk calls, Batman, it looks like a lot of Superheros will be gathering in Courtenay!

The Courtenay and District Fish & Game Protective Association is gearing up for their Annual Banquet Fundraiser, to be held Feb. 27 at the Florence Filberg Centre.

The special culinary event is catered by Tria Fine Catering who cook up a magic meal containing various wild game and seafood.

Tickets are $40 per person (no minors) and are available from the club caretaker at 250-338-9122 (Monday to Friday), or the hall office (Monday to Wednesday) or Linda Marinus at 250-338-2544.

We’ll see if Courtenay Councillor Bob Wells and his wife can retain the Best Male and Female costume titles this time. The Superhero theme was chosen to recognize all our volunteers in our conservation projects and to acknowledge our merchants and businesses that support us.

The CDFGPA is dedicated to wildlife conservation and habitat management.  We continue to work with Ministry officials on conservation projects such as donating two elk collars plus costs for tracking, as well as Comox Lake fish surveys and hatchery work, to name a few.  We are proud to provide the Fishing Forever Program for seniors and challenged community members, Region One Kids Camp and other community events.

Great krypton! Our Superheros in the Comox Valley and other communities save the day by generously donating prizes each year. The Banquet Committee members will be canvassing the Comox Valley for donations during the next few weeks.  Anyone wishing to donate may also email and we will be happy to pick it up.
