We are halfway
through summer and there is still lots of time to get out shooting – but then
before you know it indoor season will start once again! Read on for updates,
info and reminder. Happy shooting!
The Gate at the Range
Please lock the
gate at the range when you leave. Even
if it is halfway through the day when you leave and you’re the only one there, do
not assume that someone else will be along to do their own shooting and in turn
lock the gate themselves. Both the main gate as well as the gate to
the sheds/washrooms need to be locked when you leave. There is no caretaker
that comes around every evening and locks up the range, so please lock the gate
when you leave no matter the time of day.
