ATTENTION VGC MEMBERS
The 2022 Combination number to the range gate and sign-in shed is now in effect. If you have not renewed your Vermilion Gun Club membership you won't be able to access the range using the old 2021 combination number.
To renew your VGC membership or to join as a new member you may purchase memberships from the Vermilion Cornerstone Co-op GasBar, from one of the VGC Board of Directors or by downloading an application form off of the club's wersite at vermiliongunclub.ca.
The latest Road Report as off January 3, 2022 on the road down to the range is that it is snowed in and with heavy drifting at the two curves at the bottom the hill. After the recent snowfall and wind expect the road to be close to impassible.
Stay warm and stay safe. Happy New Years to all.
LADIE'S NIGHT AT THE SHOOTING RANGE
The Vermilion Gun Club held two Ladie's Night this past September with an excellent turn-out of 47 participations over the two nights. Organizer Doreen McRobert was very pleased with the number of ladies who came to learn, eat, visit and relax on two wonderful fall evenings. Participants were able to try several stations set up with the opportunity to learn to fire handguns, revolvers, semi-auto handguns, 22 cal. rifles, shotguns and the slightly higher powered 22-250 centerfire rifle. Each station was manned with a range officer, who were gun club members trained to give proper firearms handling instructions, guideance and answer any questions people may have had about the firearms. Due to the success of the two nights this fall, the club will be looking into incorporating Women's evenings into the programming for the 2022 shooting season. Watch the Vermilion Gun Club's Facebook page for dates of upcoming events starting in mid-May of 2022. Doreen McRobert would like to thank Rona Hardware and the Vermilion Gun Club members for sponsoring the evenings and volunteering their time to make this event a success.

All target holders were replaced, more gravel fill was added to all the target berms, the wood pile behind the blue storage shed was moved and cleaned up, the range bird houses were cleaned out for the coming nesting season, the target shed was cleaned up, and the firing line was modified to accept the new wind barrier. There is stilla bit of work to be completed including the installation of the wind barrier on the west side of the firing line and the removal of the old wood fench behind the flax bale barrier.
