Annual General Meeting and Banquet on Feb 10, 2018

Alberta Outfitter Association News

Please plan on attending this year’s Annual General Meeting and Banquet on Feb 10, 2018 at the Sheraton Inn, Red Deer, Alberta.

  • AGM 9:00am
  • Cocktails 5:00pm
  • Dinner 6:00pm

Tickets are available from Dawn Turner (dawn01@xplornet.ca or 403 818-4803) for $65/each or $500/table (8 tickets).  Outfits that buy at least one table will be eligible to submit a nomination for “Top Guide” award. This is a long overdue way of being able to recognize and honor some of the amazing trail guides that make our outfits shine. We will be awarding the “top guides” a beautiful, engraved custom knife to mark the occasion. More info as to submission requirements will follow.

This year’s banquet is a big change from what we’ve done for the past several years.  Venue, entertainment, awards, and fundraising are all facing changes.  Our goal is to ensure the annual banquet becomes a thriving event for outfits to bring together clients, friends, family and associates for an energized night of networking, socializing and  fundraising.  We strongly believe that every single member stands to benefit from attending,  and  are counting  on the support of our outfitters to make it a success.

Room reservations at the Sheraton Hotel are available online https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/Book/AlbertaOutfittersAssociation  or call (403) 346-2091 and quote  “Alberta Outfitters” for our group rate.  Hotels must be booked by Jan 18 to get the negotiated rate of  $109.

Schrader-Turner Memorial Scholarship

Schrader-Turner-Memorial-Scholarship 2018

Clem Schrader and Bobby Turner were men with a passion for the outdoors, animals and the well-being of today’s youth. They were farmers, ranchers and outfitters who took the time to volunteer on several local committees always looking to find fair solutions in today’s ever changing world. Their years of involvement on the Panther River Advisory Committee and Panther River Environmental Enhancement Legacy Committee strongly contributed to creating an oil and gas development in the beautiful eastern slopes of Alberta which followed the vision of “Working together, a diverse group developed the Panther wells using respectful communication and thoughtful planning, combined with a strong determination to ensure that this unique part of the world will be available for future generations to experience and enjoy”. Their contributions have motivated Shell Canada to create the Schrader-Turner Memorial Scholarship – $1,000.00
