    A few club members have asked if there is a document illustrating the differences between the current Rules and Regulations and the proposed Rules and Regulations.

    There is no document showing the differences as the Rules and Regulations have been reformatted and it is not really possible to do up a document showing the changes.

    For your convenience in reviewing the differences here are links to the proposed new Rules and Regulations and Current Rules and Regulations.

    The South Cariboo Sportsmen Association club located in Ashcroft, B.C. has asked for our assistance in helping them raise funds to rebuild their rifle range. They need $20,000 to rebuild and complete a new rifle range building which burnt down in the Elephant Hill fire. They are a small club of only 200 members. The 3-Gun raffle tickets are $10 each. 

    Click here for a poster with information on the raffle.

    Ticket buyers can purchase tickets via E-Transfer (EMT), and for those unfamiliar with the E-Transfer process they can phone their Vice President, Wayne Wawrenuik at 604-861-2454 and use Visa or MasterCard. He is retired and available 8:30 am -10:00 pm any day of the week.  When doing an e-Transfer, the buyer needs to include in the e-Transfer or separate email their address, city, postal code, phone number and email so Wayne can fill in the ticket.

    Mail and email your letter. It has more impact if signed and mailed to your MP

    Dear Mr. _______,

    I am writing today as one of your constituents to express my disbelief and disappointment over the action taken by Mr. Trudeau and the federal government against legal firearm owners.

    As a lifelong target shooter, shooting sports enthusiast, legal firearm owner and individual affected by the recent action, I strongly feel that the use of an order-in-council ban is an egregious overstepping of the legislative process, and that the action taken will be completely ineffective in combating crime and gun violence in Canada. It is widely documented that the overwhelming majority of firearms used in crime are smuggled into the country illegally and used by criminals who do not abide by the law. Legal firearm owners in Canada are among the most thoroughly vetted individuals and are statistically less likely than other residents of Canada to commit crime. This order-in-council action unfairly targets the legal firearm owner community in what appears to be an attempt to show false progress on combating crime and simultaneously fails to address the issue of criminal gun violence.

    I believe that bypassing the legislative process via an order-in-council action is extraordinarily undemocratic and reinforces my confidence in my decision to not vote Liberal in federal elections.

    I implore you to consider the facts, consider the results of Petition e-2341 and encourage Mr. Trudeau and his cabinet to rethink this misstep.

    Yours sincerely,
    <Full Name>
    <Address>

    May 10th, 2020 Update:

    There is currently no change to the COVID related SCRGC facility closures; however, the Board of Directors is monitoring the situation and will be meeting again this Friday and will discuss options for when facilities may be able to reopen. During this closure the Clubhouse has been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized.  Thanks to Fred Gazeley for coordinating these efforts.

    Our focus remains to protect our members, friends and families and support physical distancing recommendations.

    A recent Vancouver Coastal Health notice states that for recreational facilities to be open the following is required.  Facilities should implement strategies that allow both staff and participants to follow the Provincial Health Officer’s physical distancing recommendations and keep themselves 2 metres apart from other people while on site as much as possible.   Operators should follow routine cleaning practices with enhanced cleaning of high-touch surfaces or shared equipment. Operators should ensure that handwashing, toilet and shower facilities, if available, are open, well stocked and cleaned regularly. 

    If any members are willing to volunteer to commit to regularly cleaning the clubhouse facilities including indoor range and washrooms to support re-opening of the clubhouse please contact info@scrgc.ca 

    Membership renewals continue to be available online.  Keys and membership cards can be mailed out by emailing info@scrgc.ca 

    At this time the outdoor Pinecone and lower ranges will remain open; however, club members are strongly encouraged to exercise extreme caution and preferably stay home.
