Sign In and Out Range Sheets
We have had some confusion around signing in and out sheets, the procedure and who signs in and out!
As of immediately members will sign in using their GBHA club membership number assigned to them. We no longer use the OFAH membership number or your name.
It is mandatory for guests to sign in with a waiver, collecting their information and acknowledgement of insurances.
This waiver will be completed and signed and place in a locked collection box to be picked up by the executive for record keeping.
Each member must check off that the guest has completed the waiver, failure to do so can and will result in disciplinary action.
As well members are limited to bringing 2 guests per visit.
Your co-operation and understanding is appreciated.
Any further questions please contact Alan Wheeler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Respecting Your Last Wishes
While reading some of your favourite magazines or while searching the internet, you may have come across a few articles dealing with somewhat sensitive issues pertaining to fellow enthusiasts, hunters and anglers who have passed away. Some of these issues vary from their last wishes of donations to their choice of clubs and or federations, to, how the family/executor must deal with topics such as firearms, ammunition and other items of interest.
This appears to be on the rise, especially with the long-gun registry being abolished! GBHA club has in the past received monetary donations and some families have expressed interest in offering the firearms/equipment to the club
as a donation. These donations are always appreciated and are put to good use, but are not expected of members!
Often the executive of GBHA is approached regarding the issues of dealing with firearms such as unregistered firearms, registered firearms, how to transfer them to an heir, what happens if an heir does not have a PAL or an appropriate
license, who is responsible for dealing with the firearms? Many questions and situations have been brought up on these and other topics. The executive have been able to answer the questions and or help set up appropriate actions
to deal with these situations.
As mentioned these are delicate situations. Should you or anyone you know may need the assistance of Georgian Bay Hunters and Anglers Executive can be reassured that each situation will be dealt with discretion and in a professional manner and with utmost respect to the members and family’s requests. ALL persons in possession of firearms or other items of interest should be informed of responsibilities and be prepared.
We have also listed some internet links to help inform you and assist in your decision-making, please take some time to think about your wishes. This will be posted in our Bulletin and on our website and on Facebook. If the club could ask
its members that we be notified of any fellow members who passed. This could allow us to notify our co-members wishing to partake in any type of Celebration of Life Ceremonies.
