SPORTING CLAYS BEGINS MAY 4th

Dear Volunteers and Shooters:

Great news this week from the Province! We are getting back to shooting some clays and enjoy the great outdoors! Phase 1 begins Monday, May 4th.

BRGFA Sporting clays will be opening but it is very important that we all understand that it is not the same as it was, but it is a start and we can now build towards what our “NEW” normal will be for a while.

First, we are under strict guidelines with how we conduct “business” with this phase 1 opening.  As we have tried to remain in contact with all of you over the past couple of months, as some of you may already know, we have a new website that will be our avenue to run our venue and follow the guidelines BRGFA has in place and adhere to all Provincial Guidelines. www.brgfasportingclays.ca

It is VERY important and we are asking for all to utilize technology as much as we can to make things flow hopefully with a bit more ease.  Booking online will make things easier, but if you absolutely cannot use our website to book online, we are asking those of you to contact us at (204) 444-4109 or (204) 791-7295  or email kellybourns(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)xplornet.com , that way we know who you all are and can get you registered and information out to you!

Please visit our website and sign up for our newsletter.  This will enable us to communicate with all of you in a quicker response time and will be our avenue to let you know if we need to cancel due to weather and/or to provide all of you with any important information. Our website also provides an avenue to contact us with any questions you may have and because Pre registration is MANDATORY, you may register for upcoming events and get more information with the guidelines and safety measures we will be implementing and following.

There are going to be hiccups, and issues that we will face as this will be a learning experience! Please be patient, flexible, accommodating and understanding.  We need to work together to make this happen and to continue to happen.  We don’t want to have to shut down again!

Monday Night Sporting Clays, May 11th.  There are limited time slots available. First booking time is 5:00 pm and will be every 15 minutes, with the last time slot being 6:15 pm.  First come~First served. Registration will close Saturday, May 9th at 4:00 pm or once all time slots are filled.

Saturday, May 16th will be our first all day booking.  First time slot 9:00 am, every 15 minutes, with the last being 3:00 pm.  Depending on response, we could start a bit earlier and go a bit later. First come~First served. Registration closes Friday, May 15th at 6:00 pm or once all time slots are filled.

I must also point out that online registration also enables us to close off registrations once all time slots are full and put people on waiting lists.  We are asking for 24 hour notice if you are not able to make it.  This will give us the opportunity to contact our waiting list to fill empty timeslots more efficiently. If you are sick…STAY HOME!!!!

Time slots are squad start times.  So for example, Monday nights there are only 6 squads that will be able to book. Squad 1 starts shooting at 5:00 pm, Squad 2 starts shooting at 5:15 and so on.

  1. Pre Registration is Mandatory – ONLINE  registration is preferred! Each date requires a separate registration submission.

**If you show up, you will either be turned away or asked to wait at the gate until there is an opening.**

  1. Squads are minimum of 2 to maximum of 4 people.
  2. If you have a squad, each member must register separately.  Please include names on each registration of your squad mates. If you are not able to get a squad arranged, please indicate on the registration form and we will do our best to accommodate you.
  3. All registrations are on a first come first served basis.
  4. All squads will be advised a start time.  We will do our best to accommodate time requests, but we are asking everyone to be flexible.

A Waiver of Liability must be filled out and signed by all registered shooters. Parents/Guardians of juniors (under the age of 18) must fill out and sign a Waiver for each Junior.  There are 2 forms, one for adult and one for juniors. Waivers can be found at the bottom of Event Registration Page and can be printed by clicking on the link.  There will be extra copies on the day of the shoot, but would appreciate if you could print off and have ready before arriving.

Scores cards will be available online, and on site if you wish to keep score.  There will be a box at your last station to put your scorecards in and we will track scores and averages on the website.  If you do not wish to have your average, don’t drop your scorecards off once you are done shooting.

Upon arrival to the Range, please utilize both front and back parking areas and keep a recommended distance of 10 feet between vehicles.

Arrive 10 – 15 minutes prior to your start time to get ready and report to the front of the clubhouse, there you will be provided with further instructions and directed to station 1.

So get ready, registration is open and live on the website!!! Apologies for the lengthy email, once we get a better understanding and flow, it will be so much easier!!!
