On January 14, the Slave Lake Rod and Gun Club held its annual Family Fun Day at the Northern Lakes College gym in Slave Lake. Community members had a chance to try magnet fishing, archery, a turkey shoot (with what appear to be BB guns), and to eat and vote in the chili cook off. Rod and Gun members took part in a horn scoring.

Lesser Slave Lake Forest Education, FireSmart, and Dave Booth Taxidermy also had booths at the event.

Chris Labrie won the chili cook off and Gordon Iverson was a close second.

Joe Sloat (middle) won the horn scoring event with the largest overall white tail deer. It was 144 4/8. Brody Teal (left), from Dave Booth Taxidermy, and Gordon Iverson, from the Rod and Gun Club, present the prize.
