Bluewater Park became the busy site of the Bruce Peninsula Sportsmen’s popular “fun in the park” event as part of the 2017 Wiarton Willie Festival. Folks gathered hours after the albino groundhog Willie declared an “early spring” at the prediction ceremony seen around the world.
At the park, our conservation group hosted people of all ages who gathered around the bonfire to enjoy, hot chocolate, hot dogs and marshmallows, and to talk outdoors recreation. BPSA volunteers set up a typical ice fishing tent aimed at sparking discussion about our Canadian heritage pursuits - fishing, hunting and trapping.
Cooking up hotdogs ...
.. that always seem to taste better out of doors
We had a steady stream of visitors to our blazing campfire which came in handy on a cold blustery day.
Our Bluewater Park event helped mark year sixty-one of the Wiarton Willie Groundhog Festival.
BPSA participation in the Willie Fest is part of our club’s community outreach. We are always seeking new members who enjoy outdoors sports no matter what the season.
BPSA President Jim Martell said he was very pleased that so many people took part in this year’s festival activities. He also paid tribute to all the club members who work so hard to make our programs successful.
Our conservation group the Bruce Peninsula Sportsmen’s Association was established in 1962 to protect and enhance our precious resources of fish and wildlife. We promote outdoors recreation activities such as hunting, fishing, and trapping. We operate the longest running volunteer community hatchery program in Ontario. We have stocked more than 5 million fish to support what we hope will continue to be a thriving sports fishery. Check our website at http://bpsportsmen.com/
