Protecting the boat launch

  • by

Last year around this time, some members and non-members were launching large boats and, believe it or not, even a houseboat, next to our pier! As you can imagine, this caused irreparable damage to the riparian area. 
This has to become a HAND LAUNCH BOAT SITE ONLY.
The trout club executive has, therefore, decided to install a barricade to prevent people from driving down to the water’s edge, launching heavy boats, and adding to the damage. 
Thanks to long-time member Larry Campbell for his efforts in designing, building, and installing the barricade. 


Peter Mapplebeck

Peter passed away peacefully in his sleep in Yuma, AZ.
He is survived by his wife Darolyn, children: Lyle (Heather), Michelle (Jan) Kristensen and Ric (Laurie); grandchildren: Raymond Mapplebeck, Rachel and Sarah Kristensen, Alyssum (Kiyo) and Dianthus Mapplebeck; 3 brothers: Michael, Brian, Phil (Pam)and 1 sister: Pauline (Don) Morris, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

Peter will be missed for his quick wit and his ability to fix anything and to chat with anyone. He was a smart, stubborn man and an avid fisherman who was involved in many community endeavors, including the Lions’ Club and the Edmonton Trout Club. A Celebration of Life will take place later this summer.

Peter was a life member of Edmonton Trout Fishing Club. He originally joined in 1974. He used to manage and started the aeration at Spring Lake by himself and was out skating on the lake as soon as the ice was an inch and a half. Peter will be missed by all, and especially the members of the ETFC.

Thanks to those members who provided feedback on the proposed update of ETFC’s Bylaws that was sent out on March 7th.  Comments were very positive. Suggestions for change focused almost entirely on two parts: the wording of the Club’s Objective (Article 2.1) and the role of Directors on the Club’s executive (Appendix B). Changes to these two sections have been made by the executive as suggested by the feedback along with a few minor wording and punctuation changes elsewhere to help clarify meaning. The revised version of the bylaws, proposed by the executive for member approval at the April 12th general meeting, is attached.
There may possibly be two further changes proposed – one regarding the number of Directors on the Executive and the other to delete the option of proxy voting (bylaw article 6.5.2).  These items are on the agenda for the April 5th Executive meeting and, if there are any proposed changes to them, they will be communicated to members prior to the April 12 vote.
As there are only 30 mins. scheduled for business at the April 12 meeting and a lot to cover, please let us know beforehand of any clarification you would like re any article(s) in the proposed bylaws.
