    Hello members,

    Recently, a substantial amount of split and stacked firewood was taken from the Pinecone camping fire pit. This represented a substantial amount of work for one of our members, and we were counting on using it for our New Year's shoot yesterday.

    This wood was taken since our snowfall, there are tire tracks and footprints in the snow. 

    If anyone has any information at all regarding this incident, please contact any board member and bring the details forward. Anonymity will be guaranteed.

    We want to remind everyone that just because you are a member of the club, it DOES NOT imply permission to remove anything from any club property that you did not bring there yourself. That is outright theft.

    We are trying very hard to get our club back on its feet after some difficult years, not to mention the problems that Covid has brought to the table.

    Please keep this in mind when using the facilities.

    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>

    The Board is looking to form the following committees.  Please email info@scrgc.ca if you can volunteer even a few hours of your time.

    Clubhouse and Indoor Range Committee: To coordinate maintenance and cleanup of the clubhouse. We currenty have ZERO volunteers for this work.

    Current Issues needing immediate attention

    • Need lightbulbs need replaced in range and bathroom
    • Rodent issue needs to be addressed
    • Kitchen and storage rooms need cleaning
    • Office and filing cabinets need organized
    • Hole in kitchen floor needs repairing
    • Stove and dishwasher could use replacing

    Range Maintenance Committee: To coordinate regular maintenance and repairs of outdoor ranges.

    Range Policies Committee:  To standardize range use procedures and improve signage.

    Range Officer Program Committee: To establish a formal SCRGC Range Officer Program and coordinate training.

    Fundraising Committee: To coordinate fundraising ideas to keep membership dues down. Ideas suggested include:

    • T-Shirts (with sponsors hopefully ready for sale by the December meat shoot)
    • Renting out clubhouse
    • Axe throwing pit
    • 50 / 50 draw or raffle

    Water and Fire Suppression Committee: To liaise with Chapman Creek Hatchery on the well proposal and to determine options and requirements for fire suppression at the shotgun range.

    Axe Pit Construction Committee: Design and build axe throwing pit area at lower range. Do you have any axe throwing experience?
