Past Events





Ron Tyson was one of the founding members of HACS 50 years ago in 1970.  He organized and set up the shows in Vancouver, Burnaby and Coquitlam.  He had help of course but no one worked harder than Ron.  It was a major social part of his lifestyle.  His wife traveled with him to Gun Shows across Canada and the US.  Ron has served as our President for many years now.  When we had to leave Burnaby the shows were re-located to Chilliwack where we have enjoyed several years of successful gun shows.  In appreciation for all he has done for HACS he was presented with a wall plaque of Recognition for his Service to HACS.  We intended to present the plaque at the AGM at the March show but Covid-19 struck.  Ron had tables at the Hunting & Fishing show at the Armories Hall on Princess Avenue in Chilliwack on July 11th.  I saw him there in the early morning.  He told me his last show will be at the Armories Hall in Chilliwack in Sept.  He is retiring.  I went home, got the plaque and presented it in the afternoon.  You can see how surprised and pleased he was by the photos, courtesy of Bryan Gagne.  I wanted to do the presentation at a gun show with some of his peers present.  It worked out well.
