Lack of volunteers requires paying for travel expense (ie. gas mileage) for those involved in maintaining the range.  CRA mileage is $ 0.58 per km, We will use 50% or . $ 0.29/km.  We will keep a log and payouts will be once (1) a year in November.  A truck load to the dump will still be $50.00

Albert Cleveland suggested we should use the current CRA rate of  $.58/km to help defray  travel costs and keep our of volunteers . All were in favor.

 

As tested in 2020, we will continue supplying free targets which are paid for from the club selling the field brass.  All were in favor.

We require $10,000 cash reserves by the next range inspection in 2023. All were in favor

We need to add the Pistol Range Building to the Insurance Policy. (Presently, $496 for rifle range and storage container insurance). All were in favor.

We need to add a larger fire break using crushed rock around the storage shed. All were in favor

We do not plan to open the range road before May 1st at the earliest. The main access road to the range gate must be down to gravel before we consider opening the road.  Club records for the past 5 year’s records indicate there was very little use by the membership early on. (less than 5 per week but improved to 15 per week after May 15). All were in favor

With the new gun laws being but into force by the order in counsel by trudeau we propose to donate  $ 500.00 to the CCFR (Canadian Coalition Firearm Rights)  to help fund their challenge  the courts to protect our gun rights. All were in favor
