Bill C-21 Important Information for Firearms Owners
Published Date: 2021-02-18 10:25:00

Update from Gerry Carr on recently introduced Bill C-21 many parts of which will have negative impacts for licensed law abiding firearms owners. While there are some good parts to address illegal firearms, unfortunately it’s a package deal and does not address the real issues with gun violence in Canada.

AGM Clarification
Published Date: 2021-02-15 15:46:00

Hello Folks,

I would like to provide some clarification regarding the status of our Annual General Meeting. Our annual newsletter has gone to Canada Post for delivery and we have also made an announcement on our website that has caused some confusion for some members. I stated on the website and in the newsletter that the AGM for the 2020-2021 membership year has been postponed, the bottom of the newsletter erroneously states “No Annual General Meeting This Year” which was an error on my part. It should have stated “No DATE for Annual General Meeting This Year.”

In short, the executive board approved a motion to amend bylaw 5.01 so that under egregious circumstances the executive board can motion to postpone the AGM for 60 days with a review again at that time to proceed or postpone for another 60 days.

In short our Annual General Meeting will be postponed until such time as it’s safe and legal to host, we’re able to perform balloting for elections and be held in a manner in which all members have the capability to attend should they wish to take part. The existing executive which has remained largely unchanged in recent years has agreed to stay on and continue to safely manage the club through these trying times, which has added a great amount of complexity, responsibility and stress to our normal operations. Any positions that become vacant will remain so until an election of officers is held.

Please regularly check the club website for updates on this and other important club matters.

Thanks,

Mike Smith

President, SJRGC


Covid Level 5 - ALL RANGES CLOSED EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATLY
Published Date: 2021-02-12 23:36:00

Earlier this evening the Government of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador moved the entire island to Covid Alert Level 5 which in summary means all but essential services must shut down. It includes prohibiting gatherings of more than 5 people and greatly limits recreational activities. 

For the safety of all members, and to remain legally compliant under Covid Alert Level 5 Public Health Orders, the executive board has approved a motion to Close ALL RANGES AND BUILDINGS of the St. John's Rod and Gun Club effective immediately.

Our facility is not to be accessed by members at this time with the exception of security checks, emergency repairs, and snow clearing and only with written acknowledgement from the president or executive board.  

We will adjust our Covid Response with guidance from Public Health Authorities and open our ranges as soon as we are allowed. Membership renewals will continue via postal mail as normal.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during these difficult times, stay safe, keep your families safe.

Mike Smith

President, SJRGC
