Raffle draw date

  • by

At the request of ETFC, Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission has extended the draw date for our multi-prize raffle from June 12th to October 4, 2022, our first scheduled meeting of the Fall.  A number of factors made this necessary including the inability to hold in-person meetings and events at which tickets could be sold, some delay in province-wide advertising, and the lack of a viable system to purchase tickets online. We’re hoping to remedy these as soon as we can.  Because of the draw delay, a refund on any tickets purchased prior to May 25th will be provided upon request – simply contact the person from whom you bought the tickets and identify the ticket numbers.
Meanwhile, just as a reminder, the raffle details are as follows.

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.
