Silver City Trap Club AGM – Sunday August 22, 2021 – New COVID Restrictions

Hi Everyone,

Interior Health has re-imposed the COVID restrictions we were under most of last year. Starting today, masks are mandatory in indoor spaces everywhere in the Interior Health Area. Furthermore, a safety plan is organized for organized outdoor events, which are limited to 100 people. The Silver City Trap Club will not hold shooting competitions until the COVID order is lifted. However, you will be permitted to come to the range every Sunday starting at 9 AM (summer hours) for independent shooting practice. Shooting at other times is permitted, provided all bylaws are complied with.

The safety plan that was in effect most of last year, is in effect again. Masks must be worn in all indoor locations, only one person is permitted in the trap or skeet houses at one time, and the occupancy limits of the clubhouse and electrical termination shack are posted. Furthermore, physical distancing and hand sanitizing must be observed. There is a limited supply of sanitizer for hands, pencils, and pull-buttons. We would appreciate it if you brought your own COVID supplies and donated any extras to the club. 

Despite the increased restrictions, the Club Directorate believes it is still possible to have a safe AGM. Tomorrow’s AGM will take place at noon near the club house. We’ll place chairs on the veranda so that our senior members may enjoy the shade, and everyone else may sit on chairs on the grass in front of the clubhouse. We would appreciate it if you brought your own camping chairs to ensure everyone has a place to sit. The weather report shows a 40% chance for less than 1 mm of rain during the AGM. We’ll delay or reschedule the AGM if it rains too much for our meeting. 

Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow,

President Silver City Trap Club
