YOUNG GAMEKEEPER AND FIRST OF THE LONG SERVICE AWARDS TO BE PRESENTED ON FRIDAY


Team SGA is gearing up for the 30th GWCT Scottish Game Fair, which starts on Friday (29th).
As ever, the stand will be busy, with several important activities and announcements due to take place over the course of the three days of the fair.
First up, on Friday, is the awarding of the coveted SGA Young Gamekeeper of the Year prize 2018 and the inaugural presentation of our new long service medals, celebrating individuals who have given 40 years of unbroken service to gamekeeping, stalking or ghillie-ing.
These presentations will take place at 11am on Friday 29th June at the SGA tent and the committee would like to see as many people in the tent as possible for the presentations, to show appreciation for the individuals- at very different stages of their careers- whose management and approach have made them examples within their field.
The SGA Young Gamekeeper of the Year prize is a cherished accolade and recognises an individual whose management, attitude, adherence to the law and best practice and their ability to advocate the benefits of good land or river management make them a youthful ambassador for the profession.
All in all, the SGA will be presenting 5 awards and Chairman Alex Hogg and special guests (to be announced shortly) are very much looking forward to the hand-over.
As well as disclosing our special guests, we will have a major partnership announcement to make prior to Friday which is set to add an exciting new dimension to the SGA presence at Scone this year.
Roll on the fair!
