Events

Canada Creek Ranch has a long history of members gathering at the Ranch and sharing in the celebrations that embrace our culture. This tradition is still embraced today as everyone looks forward to our annual events where members and their guests come together for friendship, celebration and shared memories of spending time together at CCR.  We have events for every season that have been a tradition for many years, and we are always adding more. Some events have been a tradition of the Ranch since our club began with our founding members, others have been successful new ventures that we are now looking forward to as a new tradition each year.

Hunter’s Round Up  – This long time tradition is held every year on November 14th, just before Opening Day of Deer Season.  We have a special dinner for all our hunters at 5:00pm followed by a program hosted by the DNR at 7:00 pm outlining this years hunting outlook and covering all the new hunting rules. During the after dinner program we pick our much anticipated Raffle Prize Winners for the coveted hunting prizes we give away each year at the Round-Up. The Ranch House offers early morning breakfast for all the Opening Day hunters in the Dining Room, and we offer sack lunches and hot thermos drinks that can be ordered for all the hunters who plan to spend the entire day outback in the woods chasing the elusive whitetail deer. Each year we issue a CCR specially engraved hunters knife to the first buck taken on Opening Day. And, for all the hunters who are staying at the Ranch House hotel rooms, we offer a free Wake Up Service each morning to ensure you aren't late getting up to be in your blind in time... yes, we bang a loud Gong each morning as a tradition to signify to the hunters "it's daylight in the woods!"
