TRAP MATCH

Regular Tuesday night trap match is up and running. Start time 6:00 pm. Remember to sign in with the match leader.

One round of clays – 25 birds – will cost you $5.00

On the firing line it is not a problem to maintain the required COVID 19 distancing protocol of 6 feet. When you are waiting to shoot, respect others not in your social bubble, and maintain the space.

HANDGUN PRACTICE

Club members, new to handgun shooting, are welcome to turn out Sunday June 6, 2021 to the handgun range area. Practice time is noon to 4:00 PM. Participation time is flexible: come for an hour, stay for two. This event is supervised by club appointed range officers. You will be required to sign in and maintain the current COVID-19 protocols regarding distancing.

This is not an organized, discipline-specific shooting match, but rather an opportunity to come out and practice with various targets and distances and get some pointers to improve your shooting skills. Rimfire and centre fire – it’s your ammo! Targets of paper and reactive steel.

Bring your range bag with all the usual bits- hearing and eye protection, bug juice and sun screen, tool kit, scope or binos, stapler, hand cleaning wipes, snacks, water, and of course, ammo for your handgun.

Range Clean up Day

Saturday May 29th, 2021 is Range Clean up Day. There will be a Cease Fire on the entire range from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

All those spent cartridges you left behind last winter will be there for you to collect. Those paper targets that blew away will be lying in the bush for you to retrieve and place into the dumpster, and those target boards that you peppered with holes need to be picked up off the range areas.

Bring your work gloves and wear sturdy footwear. COVID 19 protocols requires us to continue maintaining the 6 foot/2metres of distance. A sign in sheet will be at the clubhouse.

Come on out and help clean up the range. 

Returning Gate Keys

A Key Deposit Box has been installed at the front door of the clubhouse for you to deposit your gate keys from previous years.

Many thanks to all those club members who have already returned their gate keys from last year and other years. These keys do get re-issued on a random schedule and by returning them every year, the club saves some dollars by not having to cut more keys than necessary.

2021 AGM – AGENDA

Here is the agenda for the Whitehorse Rifle & Pistol Club AGM Wednesday March 31, 2021 at 7PM in the indoor range.

Be reminded that membership renewals and key exchanges will NOT take place before or after the meeting to discourage people from gathering.

Locks on the gates will be changed Wednesday evening.
