Hello Club Members,
Bob Dylan once said “the times they are a changing”. As Sarcee evolves, some changes must occur, thus this newsletter being the last. We will assure you that all of the
articles will be on our brand new vibrant website. If there are any of you that don’t have a computer or internet, you are welcome to phone me and I will be pleased to bring
you up to speed with all club news.
The next meeting will host the area biologist who will give a year in review on hunting in the Calgary and greater area.
Don’t forget the annual banquet and awards dinner, tickets are selling fast.

Thanks to everyone that was able to come down to volunteer at the B&SS this past February! All of your efforts are truly appreciated. There were a lot of Sarcee Members that came out but I really would like to thank Rob for doing all the heavy lifting by shuttling all the backboards, bird houses and supplies back and forth to storage. Also, Marty and his family put in many, many hours and kept everything running smoothly down at the show. Our volunteers were amazing and we had a few new members out volunteering and learning about our club.
Our booth was very solid this year. The interactive features of our booth are what really “brings it alive” and gets people interested in starting conversations with us! Once again […]

It was a good year for Whitetails with 16 total entries. The best six Whitetail entries scored greater than 150 B&C.

It was also an above average year for both antelope and elk, with seven entries in each category.
There were 10 archery entries this year, (4 typ. Whitetails, 3 Typical Elk, 1 Typical Mule Deer, 1 Moose, 1 Antelope), which is above average. The number of archery entries and the quality of the archery entries has been steadily increasing over the years. There were two Boone and Crockett […]
Casino Volunteers Sept 8-9,2017
This is our most important fundraiser for SFGA. Every 18-24 months, we are given the opportunity to generate funds for running a casino for a few days. The monies generated from this fundraiser have a major impact on our club’s ability to help Alberta conservation projections and land acquisition. We are all outdoors people at heart and this is the perfect time to make the most impact! It’s super easy to do, so please come help.
Various volunteer shifts are available on both Friday and Saturday. Please contact the SFGA Casino Chair, Ken Wachtler if you are able to volunteer.
