Thank you to all who participated in the St. Joseph Island Hunters and Anglers Association Bragging Rights Derby. We hope everyone was able to enjoy the sport of fishing during Ontario Family Fishing Week and beyond.
Next year, we look forward to hosting the full competitive Annual St. Joseph Island Summer Fishing Derby. It will be the first week of July coinciding with the Ontario Free Fishing week. A great opportunity for family time!
As a member of OFAH Zone D, you are receiving this reminder about the upcoming virtual Zone meeting scheduled for Saturday January 30, 2021 at 9 a.m.
While these meetings are usually held in person, in order to comply with the provincial health regulations and ensure we are doing our part to keep our members safe and stop the spread COVID-19, we will be conducting the meeting via Zoom.
Zoom is a free to download application that must be installed on your computer prior to the meeting. If you do not have a computer, you may still participate using the 1-800 dial in. Meeting information will be provided below.
This meeting is a great opportunity for you to connect with the OFAH at the Zone level and to hear about both local and provincial fish and wildlife issues. You will have the opportunity to get involved as much as you wish in terms of asking questions or you can simply sit back and listen.

All membership renewals have been gratefully accepted. There have even been new members join. Your membership, both support as action and interest, and as funds, is critical to the Club. For the better part of a year, all fundraising activities by the Club have been cancelled. The result is a drastic reduction in Club income. Certainly, activity expenses have dropped, but maintaining the Club, taxes and heating are expenses that continue. As soon as possible, the Club will resume activities, but realistically speaking, the fall may not even see a lifting of restrictions. You will continue to receive updates about Club activities here on the Club website and on Facebook.

The Wild Game Dinner of 2020 was one of the best
yet. The Club is very appreciative of the volunteers who worked preparing,
serving and clearing the dinner, the Chef, Max, and member cooks who created
the many very special dishes, the bakers who provided all the desserts, the
Shamrock Club for doing the dishes, and all the donors of auction items. All
funds go to supporting the Hunter and Anglers programs like the Ernest Eddy
Memorial Children’s Fish Derby, the Awesome Women’s Experience, annual data
gathering of the deer harvest, and public education events, and for support of
our outdoor sports’ heritage through education and partnerships with local and
regional organisations. We look forward
to seeing you at next year’s dinner when we will celebrate the 27th
annual Wild Game Dinner.
