IMPORTANT: INFORMATION ABOUT PROPOSED REVELSTOKE CARIBOU CLOSURES

The Caribou issue has been one that is almost as old as the Club itself, with the decline in animal population stretching back over 30 years. Our General Manager, Teena Rumak, and our volunteer board members have been attending meetings and working tirelessly to better inform and prepare for tough times ahead. Some of our board members have decades of experience in this endeavour.
