Road Condition Report (Last Plowed Mon 12 Feb 8:00pm. Last Updated Mon 12 Feb 2018, at 8:06pm)​

Highway-to-Shotgun Range

Plowed. Road is getting very narrow in spots. 

Shotgun Range to Rifle Range

Plowed. Road is getting very narrow in spots. 

Plowing Colour Key:

Road is Open Use At your Own Risk - May not be advisable for some vehicles (snow, ice, low-hanging branches, etc) Road absolutely Closed - Do not use (to prevent damage to road, for example)

The annual meeting will be  on December 12 at 7:00 PM at the Kinsmen Center, in Newcastle . Reports for the year will be presented and election of officers for the next year will be carried out.

The lock has been repaired, and is back in service.

Doug reports that there may be an IPSC Black Badge course, if we get enough people signed up, October 14, 15, and 16. To register, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The Range has again been the victim of a break-in.

The Gate Lock was broken, and the Shotgun Trailer was opened. No details available yet. Paul Nowlan, Doug Getty, and the RCMP are working on it.

In the meantime, we're trying hard to find volunteers to keep the club open during the evenings, leading up to moose season. Any member that can volunteer an evening, or a couple hours during this coming weekend, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The shift would entail picking up the temporary key from Adam in Douglastown, opening the Range at 4pm, Closing at 8pm, locking, and returning the key.

LATEST: Paul Nowlan is in touch with the locksmith. The Lock body seems untouched, but the hasp is broken. Might be a quicker fix (or may need a part).

UPDATED SCHEDULE:

Monday, 4pm-8pm: Chris N will be on duty

Tuesday, 4pm-8pm: Adam S

Wednesday, 4pm-8pm: Patrick H

Thursday, 4pm-8pm: Dan S

Friday and beyond: No volunteers yet. If the membership doesn't want it opened (ie no volunteers), then we may leave it closed.

 

The big take-away from this is: The Range MAY or MAY NOT be open at any time - depends on if any of our 180 members step up. Stay tuned to this page, or our Facebook page, for the latest (I'll try to keep Special Newsletters up to date as well).

Secretary

PS. If you happen to know who is doing this, let us know. We promise not to hurt him. Just want a name, to help in the investigation.
