Gate Lock and Visits to the UHRGA

Posted by smith.wendell1@gmail.com on September 1, 2019 at 1:00 PM


For your next visits to the UHRGA  facilities you will see a locked gate on the lower portion of the road. In order to access the combination lock number you will have to contact or call a member of the Board or our Booking Agent in order to gain access to the range. You will need to prove you are a current member of the Association which we will confirm by reviewing our current membership list prior to giving out the lock number.

All this is necessary in order to provide a safe environment to all our membership and guests during visits with us while minimizing liability issues that could arise with nonmembers using our facilities. During your visits we also ask that you wear your membership card on wearable chest labels of a style hung around your neck such as those we would see at conferences. They are available at office supply stores or we can supply at a minimal cost to you. This will ensure that you can readily identified by us and all users as being current members of the association and therefore have a right to be on our grounds and ranges. Of course your guests are under your control at all times during visits and you take account and responsibilty for them.  

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.

 If your guests and visitors 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 must pay the daily user rate of $5.00 .

You, as a member of our Association, are responsible to ensure the safety of our fellow members, your family and guests during those visits.

Please make certain that the date and time of the visit is also recorded on the card and with the fee enclosed, place each envelope in the mail slot.

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. 

Membership application forms for 2019 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.
