There’s a lot going on at the Valley Fish and Game Club, so come check out what it’s all about, club president Andreas Berglund said.

Berglund was re-elected as president during the club’s Wednesday, February 9, Annual General Meeting. One of his top goals this coming year will be community engagement.

“To get the community even more involved in the club,” he said. “They’re missing out, and there’s a lot of fun stuff happening here.”

Berglund has been a part of the club since 2004, and has been the president for the past two.

In that time, there have been various improvements made to the hall. Scrapping costly newsletters, they’ve also started up a website, valleyfishandgame.com, where upcoming events are posted.

“We have visitors all the way from Holland,” Berglund said, of the website.

In addition to increasing public participation and awareness, another goal this coming year will be the purchase of a modern trap machine, so the club has two fully-functioning ones for their popular trap shoot events. This will come at a cost of about $10,000, and will require a great deal of fund-raising, Berglund said.

Next up for the club will be their Annual Banquet, Saturday, March 12, at the Honeymoon Bay Hall.

During this time, the winner of the Howard Smith Achievement Award will be announced. Nominations took place during the club’s Annual General Meeting.
