A Note From The President of the CFGPA March 7th 2021

Hello fellow CFGPA members

I hope that everyone is doing well and trying to stay cool in this heatwave we are all experiencing. As usual, there has been a flurry of new things happening at the club. We have a new hut built in Bay 4!

It is much larger and fully enclosed now! It was a spur of the moment decision to do it. We were contacted by the family of a late member( Mike Burgoyne RIP) he was a long time member and active in pistol and rifle shooting. He will be missed by all that knew him.

His family wanted to make a large donation in his name. So we put our collective thinking caps on and decided that an upgrade to the hut was in order. It was planned and done within a month! All that is left is a bit of paving to do. But with any luck, we will pave more than just that this fall.

We almost have a new archery range!!! It is 90% complete!! It is now on the front of the property beside the parking lot! It should be up and running in the next few weeks! Watch social media and your emails for pictures and the official opening day!

The last few months brought with it a few major infractions plus the normal eye and ear warnings given out. We had to suspend a few memberships for the major ones. -3 months for shooting at the steel that he brought himself. -3 months for shooting in front of the table in bay 5 -1 month for shooting a shotgun in the limited distance bays -3 months for not signing in guests We do not enjoy doing this but we have rules for a reason. If you are not sure about any rules please feel free to contact me, any board member or Shannon to clarify or explain them to you.

Our AGM is on Sept 8th at 7 pm at the clubhouse. The official notice will be sent out in the next week. We hope to see you all out there!!
