Proud of our Sporting Clays members who took time out of their event to move 3 small fawns to a safer location. (*Don’t worry; they were only moved a short distance away; less than 50 yards.*)

Thanks Tim, thanks Kelly, thanks Dale!

Note that the Range is CLOSED on June 12 & 13th until 4:00 pm so please mark these dates in your calendar:

MB Conservation Officers Qualifiers have booked the Range therefore the Range will be unavailable to the membership from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm on that Tuesday and Wednesday. Hopefully fire conditions at that time will allow the CO staff to qualify on these dates.

On behalf of BRG&FA we thank you, our Manitoba Conservation Officers, for your dedication and tireless work – BE SAFE!
