The range is NOT closed on the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th of June.
Saturday, May 15 will be the spring clean up day at the Outdoor range starting at 10:00 am. The Ranges will reopen no later than 2:00 pm At this point, there will be no BBQ, so everyone needs to bring their own lunch. We will supply bottled water. Howie
The June 5 PAL and the June 12/13 CORE course both have room for more students, if interested please call, Alan Bond at 250 352-2289.
A decision has been made to postpone our 3D Archery shoot until next year. Due to the public health recommendations to stay local, and the rising number of Covid cases , and our desire to keep our community safe, it was the most responsible decision. Members will still have access to the outdoor archery range and we will set up part of the “A” course like we did last summer. Thanks, Annette
Sheep feeding program wraps up for the season
From the Wild Sheep Society of BC:
“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.”

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.
Membership — Early payment incentive
Once again the Club is offering an incentive for early payment of memberships for those members who paid in 2020 and are renewing their memberships in 2021.
If you pay between October 1st and November 30th 2020 for 2021, there will be a reduction of $10.00
Individuals and Seniors will pay $75.00
Families will pay $100.00
Juniors will still pay the $30.00 as the Club currently subsidizes these members
The application form and payment must be received by the Club or dropped off at Nelson Farmers Supply by December 1st, 2020, not simply put in the mail on or after that date.
Remember, if you miss the deadline, the full fees will apply
For those of you on automatic renewal, as long as your credit card info is current, you don’t have to do a thing – your membership will be processed in November
