SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Good day folks
Just wanted to pass along a heads up about the meeting Andrew and myself had with the county on Friday !
So things did not go well and the county is pushing boundaries with this matter( making an example of us it seems ) . So the biggest part of what came out of the meeting is that we have to shut everything down minus range 1 . The paperwork they submitted at the appeal is being recognized as the only part of the CHAS range as being permitted to operate. This paperwork was the map we submitted to the county for the new long range extension we had applied for . This is wrong that they are using this as their determination of what the CHAS range is .
So effective Sunday night after the range shuts down , range 2,3,4, archery, and shotgun will be closed until further notice. The county has the ability to have by-law issue another stop order to effectively shut the entire range down if anyone is caught shooting on the said ranges . This is something we have to ensure does not happen by any person on the facility.
This was not the outcome that anyone anticipated and we are in the middle of working through the process of getting everything back to normal operations. I would like to say that this will be quick , but I anticipate 5-6 weeks if the other party does their job and gives this the attention it deserves .
As additional details come forward I will send out another email and give as much of an update as I can give . I want everyone to know that this board has followed what we have viewed as “ in the best interest of the club” and obviously some people in the county and locals to us have taken this as something to squash and stalemate. This board is determined and is not giving up in any way ! We will get what is rightfully ours and will not stop . If anyone is approached by a Leduc county representative, do not grant them access to the range , they are not permitted on the property until the board proper is available to host them . So I would ask that everyone be diligent in making sure everyone is swiped to gain access through the gate .
Steve Emblin
CHAS President
