Indoor Range now closed

Effective immediately, Wednesday March 18, 2020, at 1:30 PM, the indoor range is now closed. No shooting activities will be conducted in the indoor range until further notice.

Access to the indoor range normally concludes at the end of March, however; the declaration of a public health emergency today by the Yukon Chief Medical Officer of Health has directed that all indoor public recreational facilities be closed immediately in response to the mitigation strategies for the COVID-19 pandemic.

CANCELLATION of Firearms Safety CourseS

The Canadian Firearms Safety Course, originally scheduled for this weekend March 21 & 22, 2020 is cancelled. Registered participants will be contacted by phone.

No additional courses will be scheduled as long as the local public health measures, that are currently in place to control the transmission of COVID-19, are in effect.

The public health direction requiring social distancing of at least one metre cannot be achieved in this particular teaching environment. This places all participants at risk for acquiring this new respiratory disease. It is for this reason that we must cancel this program for the time being.

Effective immediately the maximum calibre permitted for shooting in the indoor range is .22 LR using either rifle or handgun. Centre fire hand gun will be not be permitted. These restrictions will remain in place until such time as the necessary renovations are completed and approval is received from the CFO.

The indoor shooting season finishes March 30th, 2020. Gate locks will be changed at that time. Check the calendar for membership renewal dates at the range.
