The CVRG has three main sources of funding:  members’ dues (a major portion of which goes to insurance and the Provincial body), our Annual Banquet and an annual raffle.  We really appreciate the fact that our members and the community get behind these important sources of revenue.

The raffle usually involves a limited number of tickets providing an excellent opportunity to win your choice of a hunting rifle or a high-end compound bow.    The valuable third prize is always an item of use to the outdoorsman. 

Banquet Tickets are available in late December and make excellent Christmas presents.  The annual raffle draw is made at the Banquet in February.
