The annual 2017 memorial shoot will be going ahead on Sunday June 25, 2017. Registration will start at 9:30 AM with the shoot starting at 10:00.

This year we will be shooting 50 singles, 50 doubles and 50 handicap. It will be a registered Big 50 event if any of the registered shooters would like to register their scores.

This event is open to anyone who would like to participate so please email to anyone you think would be interested in participating, all are welcome.

There will be a 22 shooting event going on for the Memorial shoot if anyone would like to participate as well. You can shoot just the trap event, 22 event or both. Everyone needs to bring their own ammunition. Shotgun sizes of # 7 1/2 or

#8 are required.


The 22 event will consist of three categories. Pistol, rifle with scopes and iron sights. It is all for fun in the spirit of shooting sports to honour those members of our association who have passed on. Lets have a day to remember them.

Bring along your friends!

The range set up and direction for the 22 shoots will be done under the direction and guidance of Al Skinner from the Stephenville Club. The Stephenville club has offered to bring along their Steel Challenge targets for our memorial shoot. I will be running the range for the 22 shooting activity with some help.

Please remember to keep using the mail box and mail slot at the back bridge of the clubhouse, west end, to register your visits to the UHRGA range.

Your name, the date and time of your visit, which calibers you used, and how many rounds spent should be recorded on those index cards. This information is to be transfered to our log books later by one of our Executive or Board members. This information keeps us in line with the requirements of the CFO. By doing so and in particular should you own restricted or prohibited firearms, you must be able to demonstrate that you have used your firearm/s at an approved, registered and licensed range. This information and our log books was just reviewed by the Canadian Firearms Officials who recently visited and inspected our ranges and facilities. While it is your responsibility to fill in those cards, It is intended for your protection to follow and abide with this request.

Remember too that any of your guests who shoot MUST have insurance coverage. If they are a member of another club which has the same or equivelant coverage, they must show their current coverage card before any shooting activity. Any of your family members or guests who does not have an individual UHRGA Membership and NFA Insurance card, or equivelant as noted above, then they must pay the daily rate of $5.00 to cover the insurance cost. You, as a member of our Association, are responsible to ensure that insurance is carried or coverage is provided for your family members and guests during those visits. If the visiting family member or guest does not have insurance then please put the name of those persons on individual envelopes provided in the mail box. Make certain that the date and time of the visit is also recorded and with the fee enclosed, place each envelope in the mail slot prior to any shooting activity. This protects you, your family members and guest as well as others during your visits. If there is a shooting event going on which you are participating in and registering for, these fees will be collected prior to the event and all those names will recorded accordingly. Collected fees for insurance will be forwarded to the NFA insurance at a later date.

Membership application forms can be found on our website.They are available for New Members, Renewals, Youth and Students. For post secondary education, Student ID or proof of registration in an approved post secondary institution, university or college is required. Our NFA insurance has a $5,000,000 liability policy. That policy can be viewed under the website of the NFA, National Firearms Association.

We will kick off the start of the 2017 trap season this Thursday May 4th at 6:30 pm. Cost per round of trap is $5.00. Please bring your own ammo in sizes of # 7 1/2 or # 8 shot. On an average we shoot 3 – 4 rounds per night but you can shoot as many as you like. If you know of anyone who would like to give this sport a try bring them along, all including the ladies are welcome. If you are not a member of the club or a shooting club there will be a daily charge of $5.00 for the cost of insurance to shoot.

Right now the weather is looking good for Thursday though a little on the cool side so dress warm. I’m looking forward to shooting with you all again this year. We had a very successful year last year with tremendous growth in the number of shooters, lets promote this sport and see if we can grow even larger.

Break em all,

Positions Available for Members

Posted by [email protected] on January 26, 2017 at 11:35 AM Comments comments (0)

The Upper Humber Rod and Gun Association is looking for members to fill our positions on the Executive and Board. Should you have an interest in or know of some potential persons for those positions, please let us know.


We are looking for nominations to fill the Executive position of Secretary.

We are also looking for nominations to fill 2 Board positions as Directors


It had been noted that since the Sergeant-at-Arms position is an Officer of the Association (Executive) and not a Board member as such, although he is also a member of the Board of Directors. Sherman Peddle serves on the Executive in that capacity. This leaves us another open position on the Board. This is a good thing as another member can now step up to fill the vacant Board position.


Thank you for your consideration,

Wendell Smith
