Henry Ranges – Access policy effective 1st March 2020

Henry Range Gate Access Control Policy

At the request of the Henry Ranges Committee, the executive of Parksville-Qualicum Fish & Game Association have implemented an updated access control policy for those ranges.

Membership in the PQFG is a privilege and the safety and security of the Henry Range users is obviously a top priority to us and should be for all members of the club. The Henry Ranges Committee has determined that we must be proactive in all aspects of safety and the first step is to screen potential range users.

To facilitate this, the control and issuance of a key is the only effective method and this policy has been in effect for some years. The updates to the policy are focused on additional steps in obtaining a key.

Going forward the procedure would be:

If you are a new member as of March 1, 2020 wishing to have access to the Henry Range for the use of firearms and obtain a key, you are required to abide by the following procedures:

1. New PQFG members requesting a key for the Henry Range gate access need to be sponsored by a Henry Range key holder or the Range Warden and produce a valid PAL.

2. New range users must receive a range orientation from the Range Warden.

3. Any unsafe acts or violations of posted range rules and etiquette will result in a loss of range privileges for a period of time.
