Dorman Range Cancellations:
The Dorman Range Committee has made the decision to close the range for a few weeks to help our community slow the spread of the Corona virus. “The Memorial” Sporting Clays is postponed. The plan going forward is to review the situation and make an announcement on April 20th regarding Sporting Clays scheduled for April 25th. For those of you that participate in the VISL Trap Shoots, the Parksville-Qualicum event scheduled for March 29th will be postponed to a later date or cancelled as the VISL people decide.
There is one last trap and skeet shoot on Wednesday March 18 before the closure.
Good health to you all. Bob
Henry Range Cancellations:
Message from the President of the PQFGA, Richard Thompson,
The troubling times with the COVID-19 pandemic have been a concern with the current open status of our Henry Range. The board of directors have voted to close the range at this time for the protection of all of our members and staff. The range closure status will be continuously reviewed throughout the next few months and will be re-opened by Board of Directors as soon as practicable.
The Henry range will be closed until the PQF&G Board of Directors approve it to be re-opened.
Indoor archery at the Nanoose Range will be suspended immediately. This will include our regular Monday and Wednesday evenings and all Classes and lessons. The news on this virus and the responses being implemented are becoming more aggressive on an hourly basis. This step is to put us closer to the front of the curve rather than being on the back end of the curve. We will continue to monitor the advice and recommendations of the BC Ministry of Health and follow the actions of our local school boards and other recreational facilities.
This is being done out of a sense of caution and although we will miss the regular meeting, the fun of shooting and being able to connect with our friends it is better for us to be over cautious rather than later on looking back and regretting not acting earlier.
As changes for our archery group happen I will be updating with emails.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me through this email address firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope that you all keep well. Bob O’Brien
The next General Meeting on Wednesday March 25, 2020 at the Parksville Community Centre has been cancelled.
