Indoor Range Re-opening Nov 20, 2020

The indoor firearms range has re-opened for the use of club members only, no guests are allowed in the range at this time. Please read and follow the Protocols posted below on this page. There are no ongoing scheduled shooting sessions, members who are not range officers must coordinate shooting times with a current range officer who is willing to host a shoot. These arrangements should be made a day or two in advance. Do not come to the range unless you have a confirmed time.

Ron Stockerl has offered to help coordinate meeting times for range officers and shooters. He can be contacted by email at stockerl@bluebell.ca or by phone at 1-225-5300. Email may be best.

Please check this page regularly for any updates.

Protocols Indoor Firearms Range, Covid-19

PROTOCOL FOR USE OF INDOOR FIREARMS RANGE DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC

• Masks are to be worn at all times in the range.
• Sign in with legible first & last name and phone number (in case later contact is necessary).
• No sharing of equipment.
• In order to schedule the number of participants it is necessary to contact a range officer in advance. No unscheduled drop-ins and no switching of participants during session. Social distancing must be maintained.
• The range officer will supervise the sanitizing of the range area after the session…fogging equipment will be used.
• The range must be vacated and sanitized before the next group enters the range allowing enough time for the fogging mist to dry.

Update 30 Oct 2020

We are hoping to have the indoor firearms in operation in a few weeks. The reopening schedule and requirements will be discussed at the directors meeting on Tuesday, November 3rd at 6:30 pm. Club members are welcome to attend.
When the range reopens there will be significant changes in the operating times and number of shooters allowed. These changes are necessary to create a Covid-19 protocol acceptable to the BC Health Authority. The range’s small space and lack of ventilation must be taken into account in the protocol. We are looking at various ways to create a safe environment including the purchase of a sanitizing fogging spray system. Face masks will be required and the cooperation of all range users is vital if we are to have a successful reopening.
