The Grimshaw Curling Rink was filled with firearms and hunting goods dealers during the weekend of Sept. 23-24, and co-organizer Jerrold Lundgaard takes satisfaction with the outcome.
“I’m pleased with the support of the volunteers and the public,” says Lundgaard. “It brings people and firearms that you might not see otherwise.”
Paul Hebert, the other organizer, noted that they had 80 tables of merchandise, and the dealers were from all over Alberta, including High Prairie, and some came from Fort St. John and Dawson Creek.
One dealer, Richard Johnson of Vegreville, was selling pens made from bullets and military shells.
Jessie Rovang had her wooden art collection, including several made from antlers.
Approximately 15 volunteers helped with the event.
The proceeds will go to the Peace River Regional Women’s Shelter, the Salvation Army, the Shell Rotary House in Peace River and the National Firearms Association.
