In addition to good times, the sold out annual Valley Fish and Game Club Banquet served to recognize some of the organization’s many volunteers.

One of the top awards of the evening — the Howard Smith Achievement Award — went to long-time volunteer Jim Marwood for the second year in a row. The award is voted on by the members, so that shows how much it is worth.

Overall the annual banquet, which is the club’s biggest fundraiser of the year, was a successful event pulled together by 30-plus-years veteran organizers Jim Eddy and Mike Hancock. The event raised money that helps pay for the club’s efforts in conservation throughout the Cowichan Lake area said Bill Swain, president of VFG.

“We get a lot of support from local businesses too,” said Swain. “And we thank them for it.”
