Rimbey Fish and Game Association is heading into a new year with a number of activities on the go and the same dedicated volunteers at its helm.

Daryl Hunt returned as club president at the annual general meeting held last week and Jim Koenig remained as vice-president. Marion Dudenhoeffer remained secretary and Pat Muddle stayed on as treasurer.

Vivian Holland is membership chair and directors are Rob Schultz, Gordon Kemis, Charlie Makofka, Allen Muddle and Tyler Pletz who is trophy chair.

Hunt said the club’s annual supper and awards night will be held March 8 at 5:30 p.m. at the Rimbey Community Centre.

At its annual meeting, the fish and game association decided to up the camping fees at Open Creek Dam, located 31 kilometres west of Rimbey on Highway 53 to $18 per unit from $15 and $9 from $7.50 for seniors if they camp on Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays.

The increased rate is minimal, but will help cover maintenance costs, is a popular all-season camping spot and Hunt reminds the public use is free until May 1.

Open Creek Dam was built in 1962 and is stocked with rainbow trout. The campground, leased by Rimbey Fish and Game Association from the provincial government, has 52 camping stalls, four group stalls and seven tenting sites and is stocked with rainbow trout.

Rimbey Fish and Game Association has around 152 members.
