Signing in at the range is for tracking total range use for the Chief Firearms Officer, not to track individual member use. Privacy is maintained by all members and their guest when signing in at the gate with their membership number, not their name. All members at the range may be expected to prove current, paid membership status.
Guests must also sign in and must have their completed Guest Pass with them at all times. Any member of the club may ask to see their Guest Pass, or, if the guest is a member of another club, their membership card for their home club.
Food Donation Drop-Off
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. Food Donation Drop-Off is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.
The range provides members the benefit of the use of the range but also provides insurance coverage through Canada's National Firearms Association (NFA). Each individual, or each individual member of an NFA insured club is covered anywhere in the world for legal hunting activities, for legal bow hunting activities, legal range shooting activities, legal range archery activities, legal fishing activities and legal re-enactment activities.
NOTE: The NFA Liability Insurance does NOT cover activities involving horses or ATVS. Additional insurance is required for those activities.
