Hello everyone, hopefully everyone is doing fine during the covid pandemic. Your board has discussed the upcoming shooting season via email and has come to some decisions. Provincials will not be cancelled at this time. Before June 30 we will revisit the subject and make a decision to postpone, cancel, or proceed with the event. As far as up coming shooting events, the provincial government has mandated that no groups greater than 15 are allowed to gather. clubs need to work within these rules. When the restrictions are softened, we will revisit the shoot schedule. As of May 1st Edmonton and Calgary have cancelled their first shoots. The province has considered lifting some restrictions on provincial parks, camping and other outdoor activities. Golf courses are being allowed to open with restrictions. This is all positive news.
