For the first time, the SGA AGM will move to McDiarmid Park in Perth, home of St Johnstone FC.

The SGA is delighted to announce the full itinerary for the 20th anniversary AGM with Marsdens Game Feeds on Friday March 3rd at McDiarmid Park, Perth.
Once again, there is a packed programme in store and some places are still left so please book your seat now by calling the office on 01738 587 515.
Principal Speaker on this special occasion will be Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform, Roseanna Cunningham MSP, who will also answer questions from the floor.
SGA Chairman Alex Hogg will then address the attendees and outline the SGA’s vision for 2017.
Grouse management is the focus after this, with Angus-based Principal Botanist Dr Andy McMullen speaking on the subject of challenges and opportunities facing modern day grouse moor managers.
Andy will be followed by Bob Kindness, a salmon and trout rearing expert who will explain the everyday miracles undertaken to restore stocks in the River Carron, Wester Ross.
Bob will then hand over to George Richie, who is highly trained in tracking wounded wild boar in Europe.
Scottish Natural Heritage, at the request of SGA, will deliver a talk to attendees on its species licensing remit. There will also be a presentation on avian flu; the latest information, biosecurity and potential ramifications for the game sector.
Registrations will begin at 9am with lunch due to be served after 1pm. The SGA will also welcome its new partnership with Polaris and launch the 2017 SGA Raffle.
