Cancelled – Dryden Trappers Council Spring Meeting

The Dryden Trappers Council Spring Meeting scheduled for May 3rd has been cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.

A new date will be selected when restrictions are lifted.

Zone 1B Meeting & Election – Postponed

Please see message below from Erik Treflin, OFMF Director, Zone 1B

Good Day,

I have given it a lot of thought in the last couple of weeks regarding what is going on in the world and with the everyday changes with COVID-19 and the impacts of our day to day lives I am deciding to postpone the meeting and election for Zone 1B assistant director, we have nominee’s from both Rainy River District and Kenora District.  

As of yesterday there are confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Dryden, Fort Frances and Sioux Lookout, with social distancing practices put in place  by our government any gathering of 5 or more people is not permitted.  I would not feel right if one of our elderly trappers (higher risk) contracted this virus at one of our meetings.

I will be putting a notice on Facebook and local trappers council websites within the next couple of days, please pass this along to anyone that might not have email access and forward to anyone that you may have an email for that is not in my contact list. As soon as I have a new date and place I will send out notice.

Thank you for your understanding with this decision
