    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.

    To protect our members, friends and families and in support of physical distancing recommendations the Sunshine Coast Rod and Gun Clubhouse is closed until further notice. The lock on the clubhouse door has been changed.  If you have concerns or need access for some reason please contact the executive at info@scrgc.ca.

    Additionally, in consideration of the current COVID-19 pandemic, all SCRGC public gatherings including Sunday breakfast, membership, orientation sessions, youth target shooting, trap & skeet shooting, monthly general meetings and the Annual General Meeting are cancelled indefinitely until they can be held in a safe manner.  We will  notify SCRGC membership once the situation improves.

    On a positive note the executive is using this time to do some repairs andr cleaning to the clubhouse (with strict sanitary and distancing considerations).

    Some archery targets have been temporarily, securely re-located in the outside shed. Please use caution and physical distance precautions if using the archery range.

    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.  All levels of government and medical professionals are urging us all to stay home and only go out in public when absolutely necessary. This is critical to "flatten the curve".

    Any finance related inquiries (bills, invoices or outstanding payments) are to be emailed to treasurer@scrgc.ca.

    Stay healthy and take care of each other!  Here are some reliable information sources to keep yourself up to date.

    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.

    If we do not get any volunteers for the Clubhouse Maintenance, we will have to hire contractors which may result in an increase in annual dues.  There must be some people in the club with skills to help and keep our dues down.

    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?

    The September 21 work party went well, about a dozen people showed up. The 300 m was raised up and rebuilt and the multipurpose pit was cleaned up.   Thank you to everyone that came out.

    A yellow coroplast backstop for shotgun only has been added to the multipurpose pit. The four 2x4’s on top of it can be used to hang plastic jugs. Please remove them when finished and take out along with any other targets.

    Due to issues with lead management this is the ONLY spot authorized to shoot shotgun at the Pinecone range. Do NOT shoot shotgun anywhere else in the multipurpose pit or the 300 metre range.

    Additional firing line flags and a first aid kit have been added to the multipurpose use pit.
