An Important Message From our President

An Important Message From our President

Hello Folks
We have been asked by the City to limit people entering our range facility to the Ward Bros Construction people and myself. I am limited to presence at the range office only. The rationale was OHS. Please respect this requirement. 

This means that Scott will no longer be able to provide the types of multimedia reports of progress and we will not be able to complete our tasks preparing the range for the eventual opening. I am challenging their authority to do this because the rest of the facility is outside the agreed construction zone. However I am fully supportive if this speeds up the progress. We will just need some wonderful volunteer efforts when we once again have access to the facility. So it will all be good. 

You can check out the City of Lethbridge site here for their report.
