Spring Lake BBQ postponed until Sunday June 17th due to the weather.

  • by

Due to the  weather the Executive has decided to postpone the BBQ until next weekend in hopes for less rain and more attendees.

Annual Spring Lake BBQ – The Club’s annual Spring BBQ event out at Spring Lake. Take your tent or trailer and head out for a relaxing weekend at the Club’s Spring Lake property, or else make a day trip out on Sunday and take in the afternoon BBQ. The Club will provide attendees with Baked Potatoes and Corn-on-the-Cob, along with a hot grill to cook your meat. Bring your own choice of meat, liquid refreshments, plates/cups/utensils, desserts, or other food items. And consider bringing along something to put out on the “contributions” table for sharing – from salads or veggies, to buns or desserts. The grills are usually ready to begin cooking around 2:00pm. For more information regarding this event, you can contact Walter Harris (780-464-1879).

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012 – Annual Members Night

This meeting is the Club’s Annual Members Night, where we wrap up the year’s
meeting schedule as we gear up for spring and summer fishing opportunities and turn our focus to getting outdoors and enjoying one of our favourite pastimes. As in past years, this meeting will feature a “pot-luck” buffet with members
bringing contributions for the food and dessert tables, and enjoying some eats and conversation in addition to the meeting presentation. We are presently in conversation with the provincial folks at Fisheries Management, SRD regarding
presentation topics.
