Saturday evening’s Rod and Cun Club’s Annual Banquet and Fundraiser was a well-attended affair by both locals and political figures.

Both MLA Norm Macdonald and BC Liberal candidate Doug Clovechok both had seats at the high table, as did Gerry Taft who is the NDP candidate facing Clovechok in this May’s provincial general election.

Everyone enjoyed a wide selection of wild fish and game and there was a great silent auction, and a raffle for two rifles.

MLA Norm Macdonald was one of the guests of honour. Here he is posing with Pat and Mark McKee. Macdonald was not the only political guest of honour. Gerry Taft, who is running for the NDP in the May provincial general election, was also at the dinner, although I did not get a photo of him. David F. Rooney photo
