Smallest O.F.A.H. Zone wins big

O.F.A.H. recognizes increased membership in conservation organization

Attention: Assignment Editor, Environment Editor, News Editor, Sports Editor, Government/Political Affairs Editor ONTARIO: O.F.A.H. MEDIA RELEASE--(Marketwire - March 17, 2008) - The Bob Pope Memorial Award is presented to the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (O.F.A.H.) Zone that shows the largest percentage in membership growth over the past year. The award is named in honour of a long time active O.F.A.H. member who knew the importance of strong membership to the Federation.

O.F.A.H. Zone G is the recipient of the 2007 Bob Pope Memorial Award. The zone was recognized by O.F.A.H. President Jack Hedman at the recent 80th O.F.A.H. Annual General Meeting and Fish and Wildlife Conference in Mississauga.

"It is our members and member clubs that keep the O.F.A.H. strong and growing," said Hedman, "Through their hard work and exemplary behaviour, the members of O.F.A.H. Zone G have set a high standard for us to follow."

Zone G, which borders the northern shore of Lake Ontario, is the smallest of the nine O.F.A.H. zones across the province. Despite its small geographical territory, the zone managed to achieve the greatest membership growth, with an almost seven percent increase over 2007.

With 83,000 members and 655 member clubs, the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters is the leading fishing, hunting and conservation organization in Ontario and the voice of anglers and hunters. For more information visit www.ofah.org.
