Volunteers Needed for Range Maintenance

posted Sep 7, 2017, 10:28 PM by Sunshine Coast Rod and Gun Club   [ updated Sep 21, 2017, 8:46 AM ]


Volunteers are needed to help maintain our ranges. This would only require a commitment of a few hours of work per month.  We need to replace target rails at the Pinecone Range, do a bit of clean-up work at all our ranges, and replace coreplast backings, etc.  The more volunteers who step forward to help, the less work for everyone. 

Please contact Gord Bader through his email at scrgcpresident@gmail.com, if you can help us maintain our Club ranges.
