To all Members of the Nanaimo Fish and Game
MAKE SURE YOU SCROLL DOWN AND CHECK THE HOURS THE RANGES ARE OPEN AS THEY MAY CHANGE FROM TIME TO TIME.
THERE WILL BE NO MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
The BC Centre for Disease Control has moved into phase 2 and soon into phase 3 which has given us the opportunity to start the process of reopening our club once again. However, if BCCDC imposes stricter measures we may be subject to closure again. Friday May 29, 2020 was the official start of our reopening plan which looked quite different from our normal operations. It was on a “first come first served” basis to begin with. Following the BCCDC’s recommendations, a maximum of fifty people and strict social distancing on club grounds will be in effect. While mask wearing is currently optional we strongly encourage those at greater risk to bring their own mask/gloves as the range does not have supplies to give out. I would ask you to please abide by the expectations posted at various disciplines and to have respect for our RO’s and discipline organizers.
The specific days and hours we have chosen to open is a direct result of the Range Officers we have at our disposal. I would like to thank those Range Officers for volunteering their time giving us the opportunity to reopen. The number of available Range Offices determines the days and hours our club can operate and these days will not be expanded unless more members become Range Officers. If you are interested in becoming a Range Officer and helping the club increase hours of operation, please contact Rob Clarke. email@example.com
Since the club opened to members only on May 29th we have gone through two cycles (9 days) and have now had time to analyze the data on attendance gathered during that time. Effective June 14th we will be open to members on production of their current membership card and non-members upon payment of the $20 per day range fee. We would encourage non-members to join the club. If you think you are likely to attend on more than 6 occasions you will save $20 for every day you attend and will also have the benefit of the insurance coverage available to club members. All buildings on the property will remain closed until further notice. Archery will take place on the outdoor range and or the field course trails.
Keep your PayPal receipt as proof of membership until your card arrives in the mail.
It is the responsibility of all members to familiarize themselves with the rules and procedures and follow them in order to use the facilities.
