NOTICE OF CHANGE IN NON-MEMBER RANGE USE.
In recent years the growing pressure on range 7 has become a source of concern to members and staff. Increased waits for shooting positions and crowded conditions on Saturdays and Sundays have not only caused frustration for our members who may only be able to visit our club during weekends but an analysis of incident reports has highlighted a stark difference between the knowledge and attention to safety of our members and that of the general public.
After long deliberation, the Executive Committee of PCDHFC reached a decision, to be revisited at a later date, to reserve Range 7 for MEMBERS AND THEIR GUESTS ONLY on WEEKENDS and HOLIDAYS.
The public can continue to drop in on weekdays (excepting holidays). Events, matches or committee shoots are unaffected.

Roofing construction on Range 7
Hello members and guests.
In an ongoing effort to improve the club and secure its existence we are currently working on the roofing of Range 7.
This may result in some temporary limitations of some shooting positions and result in a little more congestion. This option was chosen in favour of closing the range down to do the work as it is volunteer based.
If you have any time to give and are knowledgeable in construction we would love to hear from you, as you may be able to help and speed up the work!
If not, please feel free to call the office to check how busy we are during the construction. Currently we estimate completion early November.
Thanks in advance, we look forward to seeing you soon!

An important message from your board about the proposed handgun ban
This week, Prime Minister Trudeau published a mandate letter to newly appointed Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction Bill Blair in which he ordered Minister Blair to "lead an examination of a full ban on handguns and assault weapons in Canada".
Tonight, the Board wrote an email to all of you regarding the proposed handgun and 'assault weapons' ban that is being considered by the Federal government. We urge you to read the email and take action to inform your elected representatives where you stand on your property and on public safety.
Your board has also drafted a template letter that you may modify to use as a message in your communications. Please copy it from here.
Your board will be considering what further steps to take to ensure our members are informed and know what avenues they may take in order to address such ill-considered policies by the government.

The CFSC is the mandatory course that must be passed to be eligible to apply for the non-restricted firearms license in Canada. The CRFSC is the course needed for the restricted license. For more information about the content of the courses read this.
R10 Shotgun Patterning Lanes open
Just in time for waterfowling, we have opened up two lanes on Range 10 for use to pattern your shotguns. Please tell an RO on Range 7 that you wish to use them and Range 10 will be opened up (if it isn't already). Please be mindful not to shoot at the other targets as this is just for patterning use. At present Range 10 cease fires are coordinated with Range 7 so please rely on your RO to determine when targets can be safely changed. As usual, if you are testing slugs you can shoot on Range 7.
PETITION ADDRESSING BILL C-71
An official online petition is open currently asking that the government not adopt Bill-C71, the bill that is summarized below. The board
strongly urges our members to educate themselves on the bill itself and to decide whether the changes proposed will unfairly impact
on their activities and rights.
The various Canadian firearms associations have discussed Bill C-71 below:
Link to CCFR position on C-71
Link to CSSA talking points
Link to NFA discussion on Bill C-71.
Aside from adding your name to the petition, members are advised that it is within their rights to contact their MP, leaders of the parties,
Minister Ralph Goodale to voice your concerns.
Review the petition here.
