NEW!! LRGC REVISED New Rules for Outdoor Ranges 
Revised on Tuesday, May 19 2020
 
(Note: Indoor range remains closed)

Download LRGC REVISED New Range Rules here: LRGC New Range Rules - Revised May 19 2020  

Dear club members, 

Well, we have opened the outdoor ranges for a week with good success and without an over-whelming turnout - so that is good. As such, the Board has reassessed the situation as of today -  Tuesday May 19.  As a result, certain changes are being made to the range schedule and rules - some loosening while some more restrictive. These changes are highlighted in the downloadable file above - and include primarily the following:

1) Permitting reciprocal club members to attend starting May 20 2020.  

2) Allowing cash payment (credit/debit). (TAP with credit/debit still preferred method!)

3) Reducing Skeet squads from 5 to 4 shooters to make social distancing easier. 

4) Permitting 2 archers per 2 hour session (previously only 1 allowed)  

Also - the club is now on a FULL SUMMER Schedule - which includes outdoor shotgun shooting on Wednesday evenings until 7:30 pm starting May 20 2020. 

The Board will continue to reassess the situation as things change, we learn more and are allowed to loosen restrictions.  

Hope you will enjoy getting back to the outdoor ranges! 

Your LRGC Board

 LRGC Reopened Outdoor Ranges 
on Wednesday May 13, 2020

Phased Reopening Plan and New Rules 
(Note: Indoor range to remain closed at this time)

Dear club members, 

First, thank you for your continuing support, suggestions and patience in this COVID-19 situation.  It has been too many weeks since we have been able to enjoy our shooting sports and we are all looking forward to the club opening.  Now that Dr. Bonnie Henry and BC Health are showing us more healthy signs of the risk of infection curve flattening, your LRGC Board feels it is an appropriate time to move forward with a phased reopening plan that we believe will work to get our members back shooting and protect our staff and membership. However it must be recognized that this is a new challenge and we are working to meet constantly changing BC Health guidelines and thus this plan will be continuously reviewed, released in phases when ready, and executed until hopefully we all get back to full operations - or as normal as reality allows. 

The plan involves several phases which will be appropriately and individually developed/modified and then revealed as we adapt to this new situation going forward.  This plan was sent to you by email on May 11, 2020 - however note that the New Range Rules will be constantly updated going forward as described in the section above.  Please be sure you are using the most recent rules to avoid potential confusion. 

Your LRGC Board

Sad News - Kavinder Puri 

It is with sadness that I am writing to advise the membership that
Kavinder PURI passed away Monday morning Feb 10 at 7 am.
Kavinder was a club life member, and an extremely dedicated range officer, Board director and club volunteer, being best known for his  involvement with the juniors, i.e. training them to shoot
22 cal rifle and air rifle/pistol. 
He will be truly missed by all that knew him. 


Event Postponed (due to COVID-19 Risk)!! 

A Celebration of Life event will NOT be held at the LRGC Hall
on Saturday March 14 but will be rescheduled for a future date. 

Celebration of Life Invitation.pdf 


Please see invitation for information wrt to donations.  

__________________________________________________________________

Attention Members - 

Do you have a target 22 cal rifle suitable for use in our Junior Rifle Program that you would be willing to donate or sell at a significant discount to the LRGC? 
We are looking for a few good quality, single-shot, bolt-action 22 cal target rifles with peep sights to replace some of the worn-out/less reliable rifles we currently use, and to add several to our inventory so that we can run a full shooting line.  If you have one you can part with that you think is suitable - please contact planning@lrgc.com - and provide a photo/description of the rifle. 

Our juniors will thank you!

Attention all indoor shooters:

NEW!! The indoor range will be closed to all normally scheduled sessions
starting Saturday March 14.  A weekly assessment will be made to
determine when it will be appropriate to open the range again. 
(this includes Fast Draw and Archery sessions) 


 Due to current lack of armour steel availability in Canada - current plans to remove and replace the indoor range backstop in April have been postponed to a later date. New closure dates will be announced once the required steel has been received by the contractor. 
(FYI - There is a min. 30 day prep time for the steel before installation can proceed.)


General notice: Due to kitchen and hall use -

the indoor range will be closed on the Saturday whenever:

1) The ITSL is shooting at the LRGC (Jan)

2) For the 3-day PITA events in May and Aug. (Aug 8)
(Note: Indoor Archery will also be cancelled on May 3 and Aug 9) 
 


Indoor Range Schedule Changes:

       NEW!! Once reopened - the Wednesday indoor shooting session period will be reduced
to 10:00 am - 12:00 noon due to a lack of shooter attendance after 12 noon.
