1923 to 2013 - 90 YEARS OF SERVICE TO OUR COMMUNITY
In operation for 90 years without paid staff -- 100% Volunteers
 
Range Modificatioins

NEW RULES

No firearms will be allowed forward of any of the covered firing lines if you are shooting rifle or pistol on any of our ranges.  This means you keep your rifles and handguns inside the buildings on all of the ranges.  This includes Range 2, Range 3, Range 4 and Range 5. This will make the rules more consistent and easier to understand.  In addition these rules will make it much more difficult to do something stupid that results in a projectile accidentally leaving the range.  Don’t even think of putting up portable targets on any of these ranges.  Remember SHOOTER, TARGET… BACKSTOP ALWAYS and the backstop must be directly behind the target board. Allan Friesen, our Range Operator will be the ONLY person who will authorize any exceptions to these rules. CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE RULES

Video Monitoring – Expect to be watched!!

Expect all of the ranges to be monitored on a regular basis.  We will not tolerate infractions of our rules and protocols.
 
Range Meeting February 28, 2013 E-mail
200 Members attended the Range Meeting on February 28, 2013 to hear about our Range Relocation plans.

The vote was taken and the members demonstrated their unanimous support for the proposal.  It is our hope that those people represent the rest of our community.  With close to 1500 registered members as well as their dependents our shooting community represents one of the largest sporting and voting groups in Lethbridge.

For 90 years Lethbridge Fish and Game Association has been very independent providing a sporting faculty, education programs and firearm safety training to the citizens of Lethbridge and area in addition to our environmental, conservation, and other outdoor sports activities.

The presentation that we will be making to Lethbridge City Council will be a rare occasion that we have reached out to the City for help in a huge undertaking.  In addition, our dream provides benefits to the City of Lethbridge with the relocation of the noise from the firearm portion of our range away from the housing growth the City has planned for the area around the range.

It will be critical for each of you to become involved in making this dream a reality.

Tom Hopkins from Straight Arrow Consulting Federation provides the presentation as well as the background behind our request Range Relocation request that will be presented to City Council later this month.  Tom provided a three phase plan that will extend over the next 12 years.  The first part of the plan will be to find a location that will be close to the City.

This plan will involve City financial support as well as LFGA fundraising support to build a new range that is similar to our current range close to the city.

New Manual Trap Machine PDF Print E-mail
Missing Ducks and Geese ... Bring that old shotgun down to Range 6 !

We have just completed the construction of the stand for the new manual trap machine on Range 6 thanks to the volunteer efforts of Pat Davey.  Pat fabricated the stand for this machine in a way that it can present clay targets that will be similar to many hunting situations.  This machine can be used anytime all you have to do is collect clays from the field or bring your own down to the range. 
Remember to bring lots of target loads (6, 7, 7 1/2, 8, and 9).
