Our range inspection was scheduled on Oct 31 but was cancelled; we have no other information as to the new date.

We have received the 1st payment for 50% of our Berm repairs, signage and storage container.

We have completed the roof repairs; a new steel roof was installed by 3 volunteers.

The fence repairs are delayed due to weather.

We went over the plans for the SPECIAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING to be held on Sunday, Dec. 2ndp\ , 1:30pm at the Raoul Charest Community Room in Beresford.   

It is important 2018 members attend; we will go over finances and range repairs, it is in your interest to show up to voice your opinions on the direction of the club.  We need to modify the constitution for the quorum and having the AGM held in December. 

See web site under notices for the motions

We also want to put to the membership plans for the next year and changes to the guest rules required with reference to the transportation permits, membership rate changes  and scheduling a half day per  week for range maintenance.  Your input would be appreciated.

There will be five (5) 2019 membership cards held by draw for those attending.

Presently the range is snowed in, the RED SHOOTING LINE IS SLIPPERY and BEWARE OF FALLING ICE and SNOW from the ROOF.


 To Note  update from Oct 17, 2018

Our apologies for the delay, the web site changes are complete. The site is now unilingual with a French and an English side,   you choose your preference, using the FRANCAIS or ENGLISH button for your choice, but we lost all the information published prior to September to make these changes to the BOARD NEWS & NOTICES section.

We just received  word that the Government funds were approved on October 17. We are going ahead with the repairs of the range (roof & close).  Also our inspection for certification of the range will now be on October 31, 2018

Discussions of the last meeting of the Board of Directors of the 16 Oct. 2018

Sylvain richer pointed out that we have not yet received any new information on our request for funds available for sports clubs, but the documents are in Fredericton awaiting a signature for approval.

The CFO wants to meet all executive officers of the 76 ranges in New Brunswick before the month of December. Our Range Inspection has been delayed. We received an extension for the field operations of until the end of November 2018. Repairs for our certification of the range are complete. 

We will wait for the Expected funding from the Government before making final repairs of 2018 (roof & fence of the gate main).

We plan to meet our land owner in early December to sign a new rental contact which currently ends Dec. 31. 2018

If enough interest is generated we would organize supervised .22  pistol at 20m and .22 rifle at 20m and 50 m using Olympic style paper targets. These will be held on Sunday mornings,  1 week pistol, the next rifle. 

We plan to do a special membership meeting December 2 at 1:30 pm in the community room of Raoul Charest in Nigadoo. Reason, our fiscal year ended in December, our incorporation date is December 11 and we only have 30 days to send the report to the AGM to  Corporate NB. We'll give details of the clubs finances for 2018 and explain repairs to the shooting range and, if possible, make changes the constitution. Currently it is too long with information that is not required or cause problems with the operation of the club. 

The proposed changes will be published under NOTICES on the website soon as they are translated into both languages. The most important are to change the quorum of 30% of the members (almost impossible) and change the date of the AGM in December to have time to prepare the report for Corp. NB Registry.Having a meeting in December will allow current members (2018) TO ATTEND THE MEETING  and voice their opinion on the management of the club. If the AGM is in January, only members who have paid for the new year  have the right to attend and vote.

 Sylvain Richer reported that we have not received any new information on our request for funds available for sports clubs, but they are still working on the case.

The repairs for our 5 year range site inspection/certification are completed. 

Our Inspection by the Ministry Department responsible for the shooting ranges inspection/certification has been delayed. We have received an extension for the field operations until the end of November 2018. There's a possibility that the inspection only will be done in the spring of next year.

 Our estimated of $3000.00 to replace the main fence has been cancelled by Expert Fence. The problem is that there is only 1 to 1 ½ feet of ground cover and in their professional opinion Expert Fence  cannot install the fence without a guarantee it will last.  They stated it will require drilling holes in the rock with an air-track drill for the posts. The cost of a drill is appx. $2500.00  We will ask for a new estimated but plans are to proceed with the replacement of a new 6 foot fence. This would be a fence high enough to be visible in the winters and last the life of the range. 

Ron Chamberlain and John Stewart got an estimate for necessary materials required to construct a roof for our storage container. Cost of $615 in materials, the work will be carried out at the end of October.

 Military style shooting competition will be held Saturday September 23 at 9:00 am.

See the website under NOTICES. For more information contact Don Alexander has 548-4290

 Plans are to change the date and location of our membership General Assembly scheduled at the Atlantic host in January (conference rooms are not available in December) to the Raoul Charret Conference room in Nigadoo in early December. Reason, our fiscal year ends in December, our date of incorporation is December 11th and we have only 30 days to send the report to the AGM of the club to Corporate NB. This will allow the members of the current year (2018) to attend the meeting and give their opinion good or bad to the present management of the club. We are toying with the idea of making 2 meetings on the same day, one in French and 1 in English. This should make for a shorter meeting. If we vote on something, we will tabulate the results from both meetings and post the results on the web site that same evening. Your comments are appreciated on this topic, send an email to
