Here’s the drill – Indoor Range night resumes Wednesday February 23, 2022 and will continue each Wednesday evening until March 30, 2022.
Time frame is 7 pm to 9 pm. Assuming we don’t see any minus 30 C temperatures!
Stay home if you are ill. Proof of Vaccination Certificate required when participating in any events held in the clubhouse or indoor range. Sign in the log book when entering the building.
A mask must be worn when in the clubhouse and indoor range. It may be removed when you are at your shooting station – so your safety glasses don’t fog up.
There will be a limit of 7 shooters on the line.
Calibre permitted is rim fire .22 LR for rifle and pistol. NO CENTRE FIRE.
To further limit contact between individuals, the recent YG public health notice of January 14, 2022 now restricts participation in an organized event or class, to a maximum of 10 from two households. It is for this reason that we are again required to cancel our indoor activities for the time being.
Until further notice:
Wednesday evening range nights are cancelled,
Canadian Firearms Safety Courses will not be scheduled until the restrictions allow, and
The date for the Annual General Meeting cannot be confirmed at this time.
With the drop in temperatures this week, the indoor range will not be available as originally scheduled for the evening of Wednesday January 5th.
Let’s hope next week is better.
The meeting to pass the special resolution to replace the current bylaws is rescheduled to Sunday January 2, 2022 at 12 PM (noon) at the clubhouse on Grey Mountain Road.
