Hunters and fishers took home trophies at the 2013 Revelstoke Rod & Gun Club awards banquet Feb. 23.
Long-time member Kim Doebert received a lifetime membership at the event. Organizer Gail Ferguson explained Kim has been volunteering and helping out with the club for about 40 years and was honoured for his long service and commitment to the club. Here, Doebert gives a quick speech, thanking the club.
Club president Gary Krestinsky noted the Duke of Arrowhead — the record non-typical elk at the community centre — is now back up on the wall. It was removed a couple of years ago, to the dismay of many club members.
