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.

Due to today’s announcement by the provincial government the entire province of Ontario has been put into lock down once again restricting the number of events and members we can have at the club.

All indoor facilities will be closed with access to washrooms only .All outdoor ranges will be limited to no more than 5 members at a time. All events and disciplines are postponed for the duration of the lock down. This lock down is stated to be for 28 days, the situation and guidelines will be re-assessed at that point. We appreciate your cooperation and patience in these trying times.

The Indoor range has now been fixed and is functioning as it should. Regular Sunday and Monday evening supervised shoots will resume on Sunday. We appreciate the patience of all our members.

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.

The required parts to permanently repair the issues with the indoor range air exchanger have been ordered and will be here soon. The indoor range is open but the air exchanger runs intermittently. Once turned on if the heat and fan do not function please turn off the system and do not shoot.
