Regional | by Jon Meyer  

Sydenham Sportsmen wins Mary Pickford Award from OFAH for 13th time.

The Sydenham Sportsman Association has won the Mary Pickford Award for the 13th time.

It's the most prestigious award handed out by the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters.

It recognizes the association doing the most conservation work throughout the year.

The Sydenham club won their first Mary Pickford Award in its inaugural year of 1940.

Member Dennis Wiseman says at that time they were called the Grey Bruce Protective Association.

Wiseman says under the Sydenham banner, they have taken eight Mary Pickford Awards.

He add's there's still some room left on the trophy shelf for another Pickford.

The club received the award at the 83rd Annual Fish and Wildlife Conference in Mississauga (March 17th).

One judge said its very impressive work and the association showed great efforts to sustain angling and hunting, and also biodiversity.

There's 670 member clubs and over 100,000 members in the OFAH.
