Yukon Shooting Federation AGM

Please take a few minutes to  read the letter from the Yukon Shooting Federation to all Yukon shooters.

The Yukon Shooting Federation is the governing body for all shooting sports in Yukon.

All shooting disciplines have a voice. Will your shooting interests be heard?

Did you know that the YSF sponsors a variety of Yukon Championship events including the upcoming Canadian National Silhouette Rifle Championships, scheduled to happen at the Whitehorse Rifle and Pistol Club in July 2014?

Did you know that Yukon has had Gold Medal recipients at the Canada Winter Games? Although the Arctic Winter Games removed the shooting sports from the schedule, the Canada Winter Games and the Olympics continue to recognize the shooting sports.

As a member of the shooting community you should consider taking a more active role in your sport, or at least attend the AGM to hear how you can help or just to find out how the organization works.

The Yukon Shooting Federation requires new leadership.

See you at the gun club on Sunday November 10th, 2013 at 1:00 PM

Last Night for Public Access September 26th

There are three  Thursday evenings remaining in September for the public to access the outdoor range with the final evening being Thursday September 26th, 2013. Two Range Safety Officers are on duty at these times to ensure compliance with range rules.

While the range is generally open between 7 pm and 9 pm on Thursday evening, an earlier closure is possible as we lose available daylight at this time of year.

Public Access to the outdoor range will start again in May 2014.
