We are again at a Covid-19 Alert Awareness Level 5 so we all should be staying home as much as possible.

There is a full closure of the club house and suspension of all group activities and rentals until further notice. (The only access to the building is for security, and emergency maintenance.)

Processing of memberships will continue and please feel free to direct any issues or concerns to me. Our board will review any changes and take direction from health authorities. Please keep yourself informed. I have put links below for your viewing.

These are trying times for everyone. Let’s all do our part. By protecting yourself and others, we will get through this together.

Although not entirely sure, it was indicated that his involvement with this association goes back some 29 years. Apart from volunteering at our functions and youth events, and whatever else is on the go, Sam has been there. He has been taken care of our maintenance and up keep, often without assistance and working tirelessly to get the job done. It is always a pleasure working with Sam.

Congratulations Sam !

Kenny White, Chairman of Delta Waterfowl's Humber Valley Chapter was awarded an Honorary Membership of our association. The conservation and advocacy group has been helping us and so many other groups in promoting their objectives. Since being introduced in our local area, Delta Waterfowl has assisted us in many forms with our

youth skills programs and in the promotion of outdoor activities and conservation efforts. Getting youth interested and involved at a young age is a big part of them participating in the greater outdoors later on in life. We have a great respect and gratitude for Kenny and Delta Waterfowl. Support them when you can.

Thank you Kenny, Well Deserved Sir !

Good Day Everyone,

Just a friendly reminder to get your Renewal memberships into us prior to January 31, 2021. Mail should be dated no later than the 31st so that you do not have to deal with late fees. You can electronically email them to us at uhrgassoc@gmail.com

This information is on the application but not everyone is aware that funds can be transferred to this account.

Our direct deposit payment for the e-transfer of funds into our account eliminates the need for a secret password.

With your application, please include a copy of both sides of your PAL. Pictures are also good.

 

For those in Corner Brook or visiting the area you can drop your applications off to Barnes Sporting Goods at 18 Humber Road. Barne's can also assist with getting photocopies and the application for you. We collect those applications on a regular basis. To avoid late fees, they must be received by the 31st of January.

 

Should anyone have any concerns regarding your membership, please contact me at

709 686 5228 or a message through the email address below.

 

There are a few of you who have submitted either the forms or funds only. We are waiting on those in order to process memberships.

 

mail4upperhumber@gmail.com

 

It has been great to be messaging and talking to so many of you over the last little while. It is wonderful to know that many of you are taking advantage of this winter's conditions to visit the range.

Thanks so very much everyone. Have a Great Day out there. Stay safe in your travels.

The Upper Humber Rod and Gun Association building and range facilities will remain closed to all our members, guests, and user groups until Dec. 07. We have consulted with the Town of Deer Lake and the Dept. of Health for instructions and guidelines. Following that, Our Executive and Board have decided that we follow the recommendations of the Town of Deer Lake and remain closed until Dec. 07. Our scheduled user groups have cancelled due to Covid-19 in the area. They have informed me that they will most likely be back to visit us early in the new year. For now some of their training has been rescheduled at another location given the circumstances in our area.

 

As stated previously, "we have been seriously following guidelines and measures put in place by the Dept. Of Health. Those guidelines have been put in place and are being implemented for everyone's safety during visits. We will continue to do so for your safety and protection. We stand with the Town of Deer Lake for public safety issues of Covid-19 to help stop the virus from spreading."

To this end the building has been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized this morning and will be ready for our next user group. The building will remain closed until Dec. 07.

 

We Sincerely Apologize for any inconveniences that this may cause.

 

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.

COVID-19 IN DEER LAKE

Good Morning everyone. The Town of Deer Lake has asked for closures of Non-Essential businesses due to Covid-19 within the community. I will be sending a memo to the Board of Directors in a few moments and an advisement will be issued shortly with regards to our members having access to our Ranges and Facilities over the next week as requested by the Town of Deer Lake.

Until that decision comes back from the UHRGA Board members this morning I ask everyone to Please respect the Towns wishes and not to visit at this time. Please pass this very important message along to others who may not yet be on our contact list.

Thank You for your understanding during this difficult time of pandemic. We must all be doing our part to help protect our loved ones. Official business of the club will continue via telephone calls, text and computer links over this time period. Any one wishing to contact myself can do so by calling my home at 709 686 5228, or can leave a message to me at the link below. Please do not attach to this memo because it could get lost in the return mails. Thanks again for understanding.
