WE ARE NOW TRANSITIONING OUR CLUB'S AFFILIATION AWAY FROM THE BCWF TO CANADA'S NATIONAL FIREARMS ASSOCIATION

 

This move to the NFA will save the club on average $3000/year on insurance costs and provide us with a higher liability coverage. Anyone with a valid membership before May 15 will still be covered under the BCWF policy until their membership expires.

 

One of our local residents has been making himself at home on the .22 range, keep your eye out for him. Small Bore Range 2021-05-20.PNG 

All Members who are renewing their membership must pick up their new sticker for the gate access pass card or request it be mailed out.  If you do not have it on your card and you are asked by a Club Director and you show them your expired membership sticker you will be kicked off the range. You must be able to prove you have a valid membership and the sticker is your membership card.

If there is more than one member accessing the range in a vehicle you must all swipe your cards as you enter, Junior members excluded.

 

All Memberships must now be purchased or renewed online.

New Membership access cards will be mailed out or be made available for pickup. 

This will take time and new members should take this into account.

If you are renewing your membership after your expiry date it will take up to seven days to reactivate your card so you can have access to the range.

Until your card is activated and you receive an email from the club secretary that your membership is ready, your membership has not been finalized.

It is not completed on the same day as you submit your membership application.

Guest passes are available at the range on the electrical building.

Club Directors are listed on the contacts page.

 

The Large Bore Range is for paper targets only and placed only on the club target stands at 100m, 200m, and 300m.  No other form of target or target stand is to be used on this range.  If you feel you need to shoot at rocks, shotgun hulls, bottles and cans, or even propane bottles then find a spot off club property to do that.   Violation will result in loss of membership.

 

A Guest Pass is required by all non-members on the range property.   The cost will be $10 per person and will be available at the Range.  Any member found allowing a non-member on the property without a guest pass will have their membership suspended.  The only exception to this new club bylaw will be when there is an organized (pay to participate) event that is open to the public and there is a shooting fee attached to be able to compete.

A friendly reminder to all members to keep the entrance gate closed and locked at all times and also clean up your spent cases after shooting on all ranges, your membership cost does not include custodial services. 

Range rules that have been changed are the Small Bore Silhouette/Pistol Range will now be Rimfire Rifle/Rimfire Pistol only. A Rimfire pistol only station shall be built next spring. A request to all current members, please take the time to read the range rules posted at each range.

The Club is licensed to resell ammunition.
