2017 Ticket Raffle Winners
First Prize – Frank Prechnik (Coldstream)
Second Prize – Roxanne Turcotte (Vernon)
Third Prize – Ozzie Cochrane (Vernon)
Each year the Kalamalka Flyfishers holds a ticket raffle to raise money for the Kingfisher Interoperative Centre and an Okanagan College bursary. All remaining funds generated after the Kingfisher donation and the Okanagan College bursary goes towards the Polson Park Free Kids Fishing Weekend.
Kingfisher Interpretive Centre Society $1,500 donation
The Kingfisher Interpretive Centre Society (KICS) is a not-for profit, volunteer driven community based salmon hatcher and environmental education centre. KICS was established almost three decades ago in response to the near extinction of salmon stocks in the Shuswap River. The KICS is a watershed enhancement organization dedicated to interactive, hands-on ecological education, featuring salmon and watershed restoration.
With conservation and education as part of KICS’s core purposes, the same as the Kalamalka Flyfishers Society, the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre Society was a natural choice for our support. Through the sale of raffle tickets, the Kalamalka Flyfishers Society donates $1,500 each year to the KICS. This donation is then matched by the government.
Okanagan College $1,000 Bursary
The Kalamalka Flyfishers Bursary is awarded to an Okanagan College student in their second year of full-time study in the Water Quality Technology program. The student must be pursuing a career in the Fisheries or Conservation area.
Started in 1995 with an annual bursary of $500, we are proud that we have helped may students reach their goals. Now at an annual bursary of $1000, with your help, we hope to help many more.
Let’s not forget the prizes.
First prize is a high end custom fly rod and case, reel and line. The fly rod is custom built by one of our members.
Second prize is again a high end custom fly rod and case, custom built by one of our members.
Third prize is a fly box with at least 30 hand tied flies. All flies are hand tied by Kalamalka Flyfishers Society members. We only tie flies that work for us.
