Meeting date: Thursday September 24, 2020
Location: Indoor Range in the Clubhouse on Grey Mountain Road.
Time: 6 PM
Six months ago the 2020 AGM was postponed due the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic. Yukon is now in phase 3 of recovery where some of the COVID -19 restrictions are being lifted and thus allowing the gathering of 50 people at an organized, seated event.
The AGM will look a little different this year. The meeting will take place in the Indoor Range. The Safe Six Protocols will be followed ensuring the required physical distancing, hand hygiene, and not coming if you have returned from travelling outside Yukon, BC, NWT or Nunavut in the 14 days prior to the meeting. And if you or someone in your household is ill, please stay home. Members will enter and exit the building through marked doors to prevent crowding at entryways. Members in good standing who are able to attend will need to bring their own lawn chair or camp stool as the club has only a small number of seats. Face masks are encouraged when you are unable to maintain the 6 foot distance.
The AGM is a business meeting that will require two key activities to be accepted by the membership. The first is accepting the 2019 Financial Review by the professional accountant and the second is approval by the membership to commit the funds to proceed with the replacement of the backstop in the indoor range.
Other business items include various reports and updates and election of officers and directors. Agenda will follow closer to the meeting date.
The AGM for 2021 will be scheduled for a date within the first 90 days of the new fiscal year which begins January 1st, 2021.
The Canadian Shooting Sports Association is having their first Yukon meeting on January 21, 2020.

At a Special General Meeting held on October 11, 2017 a special resolution was passed to replace the existing 2015 version of the Constitution and Bylaws of the Whitehorse Rifle & Pistol Club in response to a motion that was made at the Annual General Meeting of February 5, 2017 recommending a change to the membership year.
Once the document had been reviewed by the Registrar of Societies it was returned in late January 2018 with recommendations to make some edits that would improve compliance with the regulations governing Yukon societies. The document was edited and returned to the Registrar and has been accepted, however; because of these changes, a special resolution process must be made again.
On Wednesday March 14, 2018 at 7:15 pm a Special General Meeting will be held in the clubhouse on Grey Mountain Road to pass a Special Resolution to replace the existing January 2015 Constitution and Bylaws with the revised January 2018 version.
NOTICE TO PASS A SPECIAL RESOLUTION
Whereas a motion was made and adopted by those accredited members present at the Annual General Meeting held February 5, 2017 which directed that the membership year be changed from the current January 1st to December 31st schedule to an April 1st to March 31st schedule, the following resolution is hereby made:
Replace the existing Constitution and Bylaws of the Whitehorse Rifle & Pistol Club dated January 15, 2015 in its entirety with the revised version dated January 2018.
The final version of the Constitution and Bylaws January 2018 is available here for your reference. WRPC CONSTITUTION AND BYLAWS REVISED JANUARY 2018
The 2018 Annual General Meeting has been re-scheduled to Thursday February 15, 2018 at 7 PM at the clubhouse.
In order to conduct the business of the AGM, which includes accepting the financial statements, and elections of Officers and Directors, there must be 30 accredited members present to achieve a quorum. The very cold temperatures on Sunday Feb 4th may have been a contributing factor to preventing members from attending the meeting. So all members will have another opportunity to attend the 2018 AGM, hear what is happening with your club and see how you can become more involved.
Notice to all WRPC Members:
The 2017 Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Sunday February 5, 2017 at 2 pm.
Location: WRPC Clubhouse Mile 3,2 Grey Mountain Road
Doors will open at noon.
