Phase Three of the Covid Crisis Update

Georgian Bay Hunters and Anglers has been around for almost 100 years. Over these years as a club GBHA has always found a way to move forward and keep its existence, even during the days of war, during the club’s relocation, and after we lost our clubhouse to a fire! GBHA has managed to rebuild itself and move forward throughout history.

Then along came Covid 19. We had to shut down our clubhouse, close our doors to all activities, programs and events. We sat and patiently waited for each re-opening phase that would provide us the opportunity to re-open our doors for business and welcome each member.

Unfortunately, even in the phase three we are not able to open the clubhouse doors to do business as we normally would do it. With having limitations to the number of participants to any activity indoors (50) and outdoors (100) all with social distancing, and with being forced to change our practice of serving meals and drinks, at this time, there is just no way we would be able to open up for our dinner meetings.

Servers would be required to serve each person sitting at a table, not only their meals, their drinks, deserts and then clean off the tables, and then we would have to figure out a way to only allow 50 people to attend! And let’s not forget that each table would be spaced out, reduced in seating numbers to maintain some type of social distancing. 

We would not be allowed to roam around socializing with each other, participants would only be able to come in sit down or use the washrooms, oh and don’t forget we would all have to wear a mask! As well we may even have to screen each participant with questionnaires or possible temperature taking!

Your executive feel that it is just not practical or possible to provide a safe environment for our members to attend our dinner meetings. 

We are however been given the go ahead to continue with our educational programs i.e. PAL R-PAL and Hunter Safety programs. We are attempting to finalize our planning and resume the educational programs with limited numbers and social distancing provided. With advancements being announced regularly we are hoping that the re-opening guidelines will permit us to open in a more normal practice.

This pandemic has affected each and everyone one of us! But we feel as a club that has managed to get through so many other setbacks over the almost 100 years of existence, we should be able to patiently wait this pandemic out until it is safe for all the members to have the opportunity to return to a safe environment. It will be a time we can enjoy the comradery and listen to the stories this pandemic has presented to each of us and get back to business as usual.

Your patience and understanding have been tested every day during these trying times, and it is greatly appreciated by the executive, as we too are going through it as well! We’re all in it together!

Stay safe, stay well!
