SGA AGM 2024 - All you need to know

The SGA is delighted to announce that Spratt’s Game Foods will return as headline sponsor for an AGM that aims to shine a fresh spotlight on the future for our young people.


The SGA Committee warmly welcomes Spratt’s as lead sponsor, with the partnership stretching back many years.


Our AGM takes place at McDiarmid Park, Perth, on Friday 1st March 2024. Members should contact the office on or 01738 587 515 to book their place, NOW.

“Once again, it is fantastic to have Spratt’s on board. Having such strong commercial partners is important for the SGA, as an organisation, and allows us to do more to help our members and the industry, in general,” said Vice Chairman, Peter Fraser.

Like several other rural sectors, the game industry is in the midst of rapid change, with new legislation bound for the statute books and policy shifts happening around priorities for land and river due to Net Zero goals.

Creating a stable future for our next generations is critical to the SGA.

As a result, the AGM will see an announcement regarding a major youth initiative - a first in the organisation’s history.

It is hoped young members will be there in force to get a flavour of the future for the organisation - and to be a part of this long-sought development.

As well as this announcement, the SGA will also welcome the new Chairman of NatureScot, Professor Colin Galbraith, to address attendees.

Appointed last June as successor to Mike Cantlay, Professor Galbraith has already held a first informal meeting with the SGA Committee in Perth and expressed his hope for positive co-operation to help bring about benefits for biodiversity whilst maintaining rural jobs and skills.

Rural commentator Rob Yorke (above) will be a guest on the day. An experienced communicator on the conflicts, challenges and win-wins which can be achieved by greater understanding and less ‘silo thinking’, Rob will challenge the audience to question him in what should be a revealing slot.

Night sights, night vision and how we use this technology effectively and safely in wildlife management will be the subject of a fascinating talk and demonstration by John Henshall.

John previously spoke to attendees at an SGA regional meeting in Invergarry and his knowledge of the differing range of equipment on the market today is highly instructive. 

Undertaking prescribed burning is a ‘hot’ topic, presently, and the team from Bright Spark Burning Techniques will speak to attendees on the future of muirburn in Scotland.

Alongside Bruce Farquharson of Scottish Wildfire Forum (above), the partners will discuss the newly developed training and why skilled gamekeepers are critical to wildfire mitigation. 



*When contacting the office to book a place (free for members), please provide your lunch choice of Fish and chips or venison stew.

The event opens at 9am for registration (refreshments served) before a start of 10am.

There will be a raffle on the day. Any donations of raffle prizes will be gratefully received on the day.
