Since March 23,2020 the East Elgin Sportsmen’s Association has been closed to its members due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All of us have been watching closely and waiting for these restrictions to be lifted.
Today the provincial government announced phase 1 of its plan to reopen businesses for modified operations. In his briefing Premier Ford indicated that facilities such as golf courses and rod and gun facilities would be able to open on Saturday May 16, 2020.
We then communicated that fact to our membership, it appears that we may have done so in haste. After reviewing the written proposal for reopening we have made the decision that it is the government’s intention to open gun range’s on Tuesday May 19,2020 and not this Saturday as previously stated.
We would like to apologize for this miscommunication and understand that this is disappointing. We are however committed to opening the club in the coming week.
