The first annual ODFGA Wild Game Banquet and Fundraiser was held June 24 2022. Game, fish and birds donated by our members was expertly prepared and served by Chef Xavier Lacaze and his team at The Ridge Event Center. Close to a sell out crowd of 100 people enjoyed an array of fantastic dishes, including lake trout risotto, confit pheasant, stout braised deer cabbage rolls, stuffed roasted bear and more. The Ridge was a beautiful venue for this event. There were silent auction items, bucket raffle draws, and a huge number of door prizes given away. 

The event was a very successful fundraiser for our club. A huge thank you to everyone who donated their harvest, everyone who donated items for the fundraiser, and of course to everyone who came out to support us. 

Plans are already in the works for next year. We hope to build on the success of this great event.

 

Thanks to everyone that came out on Feb 16, 2022 for our annual horn scoring event at HubTown. We had a great turnout with lots of new and old members in attendance and at least a dozen sets to antlers and horns to be scored.

The largest set of antlers for the night was an archery elk that netted over 330 inches and will be a strong contender for the 2021 provincial awards.

We had a number of door prizes that went out in a random draw. Don't worry if you weren't there till the end, we'll make sure your prize makes it to you.

A special thanks goes out to the organizers and volunteers for the evening. We had 4 people scoring full time and lots of runners to help tally points and keep people and antlers moving smoothly.

We'll see you again next year!

After extending the draw due to COVID impacts, the winner of the 2020 ODFGA 50/50 raffle was drawn on July 10th. 

The winner of the $1420 prize pool is ticket #82 Daniel out of Rimbey!

Thanks everyone for supporting our great cause and to our fundraisers in selling those tickets!  Our share of the 50/50 proceeds will be put towards high quality local club projects.

 

 

Have a great summer!

 

The ODFGA 50/50 raffle fundraiser draw date has been extended from April 21, 2020 to July 10, 2020.

This is due to COVID-19 social-distancing making it difficult to sell tickets.

Members please update the draw date on your unsold tickets to July 10, 2020.

Stay safe!

After a successful season last year, Darren and his wife graciously cleaned out and fixed up the birdboxes from 2019 to get them ready for the 2020 nesting season. 

These birdboxes were built by ODFGA volunteers and Darren was great about setting some up west of Okotoks.
