I would like to thank all the trainers who have presented courses during the past year. Their dedication and commitment is highly appreciated. Below is a summary of training received at all branches.
Training forms a very important part of the Association, equipping our members to respect our wildlife resources and the value of life. Training is alive and well in the Association, and I would like to encourage members to attend these courses and build camaraderie with their fellow hunters.
My apologies for any omissions in this summary of training activities.
