Due to the statement by the provincial government strengthening and extending the restrictions around the current stay at home order the East Elgin Sportsmen’s Association will be forced to close its doors to members for the duration of the lockdown.Throughout the many restrictions and frequent changes we have tried not to close the club to our membership, unfortunately this time the wording is quite specific and we see no option. We do appreciate the patience of our members and apologize for the inconvenience.Effective at 12:01 April 17th all access to club property will be suspended for the duration of the order.

On Thursday February 25th there will be a temporary interruption of Hydro at the club while new electrical equipment is being installed. This could come at any point in the day and will last approximately 2 hours.

Due to a malfunctioning air exchanger the indoor range is temporarily closed. There has been some ongoing issues with the air exchanger during cold weather but the original manufacturer has ben contacted and the parts required to correct it have been ordered. We apologize for the inconvenience and will update here as soon as we have more information.
