Peter Mapplebeck

  • by

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.


April 12 Meeting

Starting at 7:30 on April 12 there will be a presentation from:

Message from the ETFC president Deb Anderson

  • by

Your Executive has just completed a review the ETFC Bylaws and Property Rules to make sure they reflected current practices, conditions and requirements.  Most of the bylaws were written almost 70 years ago when the club was first formed, and it was agreed that updating the terminology and some of the content was long overdue. A more concise redraft of the bylaws has now been unanimously approved by the Executive for presentation to and approval by the membership at the April 12 ’22 ETFC General Meeting.  The recommended revision is attached so that there’s at least 30 days for you to review it prior to the vote.

Discussing Bylaws can be a long and not very enjoyable exercise, as the Executive discovered. So, to facilitate discussion at the meeting within the limited time we have, please send any questions, comments or concerns to ETFC Flycaster Editor as soon as possible. All comments received will be listed with additional information or clarification where needed, and sent out in a Newsletter to all members prior to the April 12 meeting. Hopefully this will help any debate on the revised document to be well informed and productive.

The main changes are as follows:

  • Club Objectives updated to include reference to the objective of the Alberta Fish and Game Association of which ETFC is an affiliated member (the AFGA statement of objective is added as an appendix)
  • Club motto deleted from Bylaws but will continue to be used on website, communications etc.
  • Exec required to review the Bylaws and Property Rules annually
  • Use of Club logo requires Exec. approval
  • Membership ceases if annual fees not paid within 60 days from when due (i.e. by March 1st).  Previously ‘within 10 days’.
  • Remove two year limit on President term of office – he or she has to be elected annually
  • All Directors elected annually (previously 3 were for one year and 3 for 2 years)
  • Add provision for voting in online meetings (by show of hands and by secret ballot)
  • Replacements for any vacancies occurring on Exec. require membership approval
  • Clarification of eligibility for honoraria
  • Duties of Exec. Officers moved to an Appendix and any changes made to those duties to be communicated immediately to membership
  • Quorum for voting at general meetings reduced from 20 to 15 to reflect decline in attendance and facilitate business of the Club
  • Option for voting by proxy introduced (this prompted by recent health and other restrictions on attendance in person, but may require debate – a useful summary of the issues can be found at Pros and Cons- Proxy Voting
  • Addition that no individual member of the Club has the right to claim or profit from any proceeds of the Club’s assets, property or activities, and clarification of what happens to the properties should the club disband
  • Eliminate reference to custody and use of the ‘seal of the Club’.
  • An abbreviated, updated version of the Property Usage Rules added as an appendix.
