All Club facilities closed Until further notice re COVID-19 concerns

To All Members

I regret to inform all members of the Nanaimo Fish and Game Club, due to the COVID 19 Virus, our facilities at the Nanaimo Fish and Game Club will be closed until further notice.    I believe safety is our upmost responsibility, therefore, I feel very confident that all members understand our decision.

This difficult decision was deemed necessary in order for the Club to do its part in keeping our members and public healthy and safe during the COVID-19 crisis. The Club will adhere to the recommendations of the BC Center for Disease Control and BC Chief Public Health Officer and the situation will continue to be monitored closely, so as to determine when Club facilities can reopen and resume normal operations.

Unfortunately, as it has with many other families and institutions, this has begun to take a financial toll. Understandably, renewals and new memberships have taken a sharp decrease. Our memberships go a long way towards the approximately $150k in fixed annual expenses (heating, hydro, insurance, etc.) the Club has whether it is open or not.

We are reaching out to you now in the hope that, if you have the means to do so, you will renew, purchase a new membership or even make a small donation to the Club. In recognition of your generosity and loyalty in these trying times, the Club will be extending the length of memberships to compensate for the time our members have lost due to the closure. This time will be added to your membership once the Club facilities have reopened.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Stay safe and healthy

In Solidarity,
John Noble
