 New!!  LRGC REVISED New Rules for Outdoor Ranges 
Revised on Thursday, June 25 2020

LRGC New Outdoor Range Rules - Revised June 25 2020 
 

Dear club members, 

Well, the outdoor ranges continue to operate with good success.  As such, the Board reassessed the situation yesterday - and has implemented some modifications for the outdoor range operations as of -  Thursday, June 25 2020.  These modifications are highlighted in the downloadable file above - and include primarily the following:

1) Permitting LRGC Members and their guests, reciprocal club members and non-member drop-in shooters to attend as of June 25 2020.  A maximum of 50 persons on the property is still a requirement of BC Health even now in Phase 3. 

2) Increasing Skeet squads from 4 to 5 shooters to allow more shooters onto the range. Social distancing is still required.  

Also - the club continues to be on a FULL SUMMER Schedule - which includes outdoor shotgun shooting on Wednesday evenings until 7:30 pm (which resumed 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 New Rules for Indoor Range Reopening Starting June 13
(Added Monday, June 8, 2020
)

The INDOOR range will open to scheduled shooting sessions starting Saturday June 13.  
Shooting will be by online registration/reservation only and for eligible LRGC members only. 
Read the rules to find out if you are eligible to reserve a spot! 
Only the new posted sessions at times shown on the club calendar will be held!
(Note: Go to the calendar tab above and then click on the event to register.
You must sign-in as a club member to be able to register for a session)

LRGC New Indoor Range Rules - Revised June 8 2020 
 

Dear fellow LRGC members,

The plan to open the indoor range is now documented (see New Indoor Range Rules file above) and new sessions will be defined and placed on the calendar for a reopening date of Saturday June 13.   This plan was created and circulated to all club certified Range Officers (ROIs) - who are a critical element to the safe operation of our indoor shooting sessions.  Once a volunteer range officer has committed to supervising a proposed session, that session will be placed on the website calendar and "opened" such that eligible member shooters (see rules) can register and pre-pay online.  A maximum of only four shooters per session are allowed in order to maintain safe social distancing. You must bring your printed confirmation of registration and payment to the session (to be turned in) along with your membership card to "scan-in". (Note that indoor archery reservations are to be made by phone to Ken Lewis as per the document rules.) Much has changed due to the requirement for Covid-19 precautions - so you must READ and prepare to follow the new procedures before arriving, while entering and while operating inside the range. 

As one would expect - maintaining social distancing, cleaning/disinfecting and other operations will be more difficult on the indoor range - and thus will require both ROs and members to participate more fully in the Covid-19 precautionary disinfecting process.  Expect to help perform this task when at the range.  Activities requiring direct supervision (i.e. junior programs/junior shooters, new shooter orientations and guests) are not included in the initial opening phase of the indoor range and are ineligible to attend in this opening phase. 

To avoid disappointment and being turned away at the range - please read and follow the New Indoor Range Rules that were sent to you and are posted above.  This document defines the safety procedures, as well as who is eligible and how to register for a shooting session spot in this initial reopening of the indoor range. These rules and procedures are in place to keep our members and ROs safe.  Those not following the rules will have their registrations cancelled and may lose future registration privileges until after the Covid-19 situation has fully resolved itself.

If we all do our part - hopefully we can all enjoy shooting on our indoor range once again. 

Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation while we get this process all sorted out!

Sincerely, 

Your LRGC Board

Firearm News: May 25 2020

What can I do to fight the Liberal Firearm Bans and stop them from "scapegoating"all Licensed Firearm Owners
for the actions of Criminals?

1) Sign the available petitions in support these issues! 

Why are you urging me, and everyone I know, to sign these petitions? 

We have an opportunity to give our political allies the ability to keep the stupidity of the Liberal government’s latest round of gun bans in the public’s eye. Why is this important?

Politicians need tools to do their jobs, and one of the tools at their disposal are petitions. I dislike petitions because, far too often, they give the person signing them the false impression they’ve actually accomplished something when they have not. Signing a petition is not an end. It’s not even a beginning. The value of a petition is to give our elected officials – in this case our Conservative MPs – the ability to keep raising the issue both inside and outside of Parliament. The flaws in the Liberal government’s latest Order in Council are many. As more and more of these flaws surface, a petition gives our MPs the ability to speak about those failings – which can only help our cause.

So… here are the links. Please go to them all, sign your name and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, click the confirmation email you will receive for the first three very shortly afterward. If you do not, your name will NOT be added to the list.

  1. Petition e-2574 (Democratic process)
  2. Petition e-2576 (Democratic process)
  3. Petition e-2582 (Democratic process)
  4. Matt Larose’s petition on Change.org [h/t @AnnieOak5]
  5. UNIFOR Members Only on Change.org
  6. MP Cheryl Gallant’s Petition To Fire Bill Blair

Sign them, click on the confirmation link in the three emails you will receive For petitions 1-3), then ask all your family and friends to do the same. Will these petitions in and of themselves stop the latest Liberal nonsense? No, of course not. They are simply one more tool in our arsenal to fight back against measures we know will not and cannot stop gang shootings or mass killers.

2. Support our firearm rights groups that are leading the fight!  
Many of these organizations are currently involved in bringing "human rights" court challenges against the government on your behalf to expose and fight the government's actions to blame and punish licensed firearm owners and businesses (through these and future firearm bans) for the actions of madmen. 

The legal question regarding 12 and 10 gauge shotguns, and any other firearms they see fit to ban is NOT over - don't assume that it is!  The RCMP continue to add shotguns and other rifles to the growing list of prohibited firearms - without any oversight! 

Support these groups through membership and donations!

Now is the time for action - NOT excuses!  Please do it now!  Don't forget to donate - we will all lose much more if these challenges are NOT successful!

a.  CCFR - https://firearmrights.ca/en/donate/

b.  CSSA - https://cssa-cila.org

c.  NFA - https://nfa.ca

3. Write your MP, the Prime Minister and Bill Blair 

Tell them you are against the bans and their continued "scapegoating" of legal firearm owners.  More letters are better than long letters - and keep sending!  Snail mail is best - No postage required.  

4. Donate to the only political party interested in supporting you as a licensed firearms owner - the Conservative Party of Canada! Support and donate to them as they continue to fight for us in Ottawa.  Only they have stated publicly that repeal of this OIC and a revamping of the Firearm program in Canada is needed to stop the scapegoating of licensed firearm owners!  Don't forget about the generous tax credit for donations (about 75% up to about $450 which means it costs you only about $125 to make this donation!)
Donate here:  CPC  https://www.conservative.ca

BTW - Don't expect others to protect YOUR rights as a firearms owner - if we don't ALL do something to help fight against this attack on us - then one day soon they will come for our firearms!  It will only work if we ALL respond as the Liberals have a divide and conquer plan of action as we have all seen in the past. 


(FYI - My understanding is that notices from the RCMP are already in the mail addressed to all PAL holders! This is what it looks like:  RCMP Notice to PAL Holders
