Banquet 2020 - February 15th

Our prize collection team is at it again...working to bring you an even bigger and better banquet than last year's blowout event!

We've already got Sparkling Hills Getaways, Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Banff Springs Golf and of course a very cool shotgun, rifle and .22 for the raffles...oh, and diamonds...diamonds in the ring....diamonds in the earrings...very SHINY!!!

So what can you do to help?

Easy....help us find prize donors we may be missing.  Ask at work to find out if they already support the SAFGC banquet....if not, see if they will.  Donation forms are in the clubhouse if you need some.  Or if you have somebody who would like to donate, just let me know who to talk to and I will swing by with a form personally.  Email me directly at warmuth327@gmail.com

Well Folks. 
 
Governor General Julie Payette laid out the priorities of Justin Trudeau’s re-elected government in the Speech from the Throne, affirming that the Liberals plan to ban “assault rifles” and empower municipalities to restrict handguns. Doubling down on this campaign pledge means the government is ignoring the evidence and the experts, and scapegoating law-abiding gun owners for what criminals do. 
 
Keep yourself educated and watch our for a bumpy ride.

BUY A BOARD

 

The Salmon Arm Fish & Game Club started a major range enhancement project in 2009. After 7 long years, thousands of dollars and hundreds of volunteer hours, significant upgrades to the Rifle, Archery and Handgun Ranges have been made. 

 

Currently we have shooting positions at the 300 m mark!!  There will be ongoing annual cleanup on the rifle range access road, when the sand sloughs.  Future projects from the wish list will be announced and be ongoing, but the majority of the earthworks project have been completed.  This is a club facility to be proud of. 

 

To help fund these and all future upgrades, we initiated the “buy-a-board” fundraiser.

 

Here's an opportunity to show your support for the club, memorialize a loved one, or demonstrate your business' love for the community. Sponsor a board and an engraved plaque displaying the sponsor's name (or business) will be mounted in the new rifle range building and shown off at the annual Big Game Banquet & Dance.

 

We still sell advertising for the ongoing club renovations and upgrades to the Club facilities that we undertake and we can issue you a receipt, so you can claim it as an expense.

 

Contact the executive if you have any questions or when you are ready to donate to this worthy cause. 

 

Levels of sponsorship are as follows:

Level 1 …………….. $ 100 to $299

Level 2 …………….. $ 300 to $599

Level 3 …………….. $ 600 plus…

 

RANGE NEWS

The range has been permitted.  We have been approved for all rifle cartridges contained in the template groups - .22 Long Rifle, .223, Remington, .308 Winchester, .338 Lupua Magnum and .50 Browning Calibre.

 

Please visit the events calendar and watch for range closures before you leave for the Range and are disappointed.
