Safety Through Education, Experience, and Practice
The purpose of the Courtenay and District Fish and Game Protective Association is to conserve, enhance and promote the management and utilization of natural resources in an ecologically sound manner.
The Ridgedale Rod & Gun Club was founded on March 9,1937, by a local group of dedicated fishers, hunters and shooters. Game dinners, shoots and fishing competitions were regular events.
Since then the Club has grown into a vibrant, family-friendly club that sponsors and supports the recreational and sporting use of firearms, archery and fishing equipment, and working cooperatively with all levels of government to develop sustainable management practices to conserve, fish and wildlife and the natural environment of British Columbia.
The Mission & District Rod & Gun Club is a private non-profit society. It is run by current members who volunteer their time and expertise. There are many Special Interest groups that are very active within the club. A number of people give up a considerable amount of personal time to start and nurture these groups and their associated activities, their contributions are greatly appreciated. Please do your part and help out when and how you best can.
The Club’s facilities have something for everyone. They are nestled in a forest of Douglas Fir and Arbutus overlooking Saanich Inlet, on Holker Place, at the top of the Malahat.
