The entire range will be unavailable for shooting during the day Monday September 19 AND Thursday September 22 from 8:30 AM to approximately 4:00 PM.
During this time brush grooming equipment will be working in front of the firing line on all range areas in order to clear the overgrowth. This is necessary to maintain a clear line of sight for safety of all members and users.
Regular range activities will resume after 4:00 PM.
Many thanks to all the Range Safety Officers who have volunteered their time to ensure a safe shooting environment during the public access evenings this summer.
There are two Thursday evenings remaining in September for the public to access the outdoor range with the final evening being Thursday September 22nd, 2016. Two Range Safety Officers are on duty to ensure compliance with range rules.
While the range is generally open between 7 pm and 9 pm on Thursday evening be prepared for an earlier closure as the available daylight disappears quickly at this time of the year.
Public Access to the outdoor range will start again in May 2017.
All membership cards up to June 30th, 2016 have now been processed. Due to the uncertainty with Canada Post at this time, these cards are available for pick up at the Sportslodge.
Have a great day.
