Ruddick’s Launch

SFOTF would like to take a moment to go over something that we hold close to us. There is a legacy project donations for our friend Malcolm Ruddick, who passed away last month, please see note from Kathy Ruddick below (we appreciate your attention and donations to this in advance):

I have some wonderful news to share with everyone, but especially to our fishing friends.

Several of us put our heads together and were trying to create a way to ‘give back’ to the outdoors and fishing that Malcolm enjoyed so much and we came up with a great idea.

More importantly, it is now formally APPROVED so we can finally publicly announce it.

I am thrilled to announce that a fund has been created in partnership with BC Parks in Malcolm’s name to repair and upgrade the NE boat launch at Roche Lake Provincial Park.

It will be named “Ruddick’s Launch” and tax-deductible donations can be made in the amount of $25 or more paid directly to the BC Parks.

It will take 1 – 2 years to complete and we will be working closely with BC Parks during the process. Upon completion a brass plaque will be at the launch commemorating Malcolm.

I am ecstatic about this project and I know Malcolm would be honored. I will be personally contributing to assist funding the project knowing everyone, including myself, will enjoy the new and improved Launch.

A special thank-you to our dear friends Brian Chan, Dale Freschi and Ted MacDonald who helped make this idea come to fruition.
