Range Update

 

As of today, Saturday August 1, 2020, the Musquodoboit Valley Rifle and Revolver Club will permit guests to use the range:

 

  • Guests must agree to follow the Club’s Range Safety Handbook and the government’s current health guidelines and restrictions as per the Club’s phased Reopening Plan (see below)

  • If the guest is not within the member’s “family bubble” or the “member’s group of 10 bubble”, masks are mandatory for the member and the guest if the guest requires “direct supervision” (less than 1 meter supervision)

  • Under our Range Safety Handbook, a guest requires “direct supervision” (less than 1 meter) if the guest is a minor, a new shooter, an inexperienced shooter, a shooter who does not have the required licenses (for example (PAL or RPAL) for the firearms they will be shooting) or, the guest is inexperienced shooting the firearm they will be shooting at the Club.
