“Both government and non-government wildlife experts continually tell us that changes to hunting regulations are not meaningful to change the trends in wildlife population, and that science and cultural knowledge are the most important tools they have access to.
Sound wildlife management is critical to survival of all species. Managing based on social pressures is not acceptable, and you cannot afford to let it happen.”
Your membership is for the calendar year, January 1 to December

liability certificate will accompany your membership card).
If you have not renewed your membership by January 1st, then you
will not be entitled to use our ranges or other club facilities;
and you will not have liability insurance for your boat or ORVs,
until you do send in your renewal application.
After this (March) edition you will not receive the club
newsletter until you renew.
PAL/RPAL/CORE training courses. All but the March 6, 2021 PAL courses are full. If interested in registering for this course please do it now as it may be full by the time you read this. You may be placed on a waitlist for the RPAL and/or CORE course(s), if you have a PAL already. Currently the January 30 and 31 PAL (two courses), February 6+7 CORE and February 27 RPAL are all full.
Alan Bond is coordinating the training registrations for the club and we are considering the possibility of scheduling another round of courses this spring (March/April) depending on interest. The current courses were full about 2 plus months before the course dates so if interested in either of the Canadian Firearms Safety Courses (unrestricted or restricted) or the Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Education (CORE) please contact Alan at 250 352-2289.
Please review the NEW!! Outdoor Range Orientation Document for 2021. This document reflects our current Club policies and includes important information for both new members and long time members alike. Generally our Outdoor Ranges only have designated Range Officers for sanctioned Club events. That means we rely on the membership to participate in the day to day safe utilization and maintenance of the Outdoor Range facilities. Please become familiar with the attached rules and procedures for the benefit of all our members, and the sustainment of our great Club. Naz King
