Sign the attendance log at formal work parties, or have your Section Director log your hours.

** In 2010, the City of Yellowknife imposed a $5000 per year environmental levy upon the Yellowknife Shooting Club for operation of the outdoor range. These additional member fees are to cover this surchage imposed by the city through the lease agreement.

The Yellowknife Shooting Club Membership year runs Nov 15 through Nov 15th.  We apply a three month grace period for new membership applications whereby those new members purchasing memberships after August 15th will have their membership valid until November 15th of the following year.

Please do not harass True Value staff for your key.  True Value handles our memberships out of the goodness of their heart.  Your key will be available for pick up following the receipt of an email stating it is available and has been dropped off.

The outdoor range is located in the sand pits west of town on Highway 3, just past the airport. Turn off the highway at the shooting range sign and follow the gravel road around the left side of the sand pits. Take the first right when you get to the trees and follow the sand road a few hundred metres to the gate.

The indoor airgun range is located in the Kingpin Bowling Lanes building at the corner of 52nd Avenue and 51st Street.  The entrance to the Shooting Performance Centre is on 51st Street, under the sign.  The telephone number for the shooting performance centre is 920-4309. The indoor range operates approximately October though April each year. Summer months are spent at the outdoor range!

Drop in any weekday evening to see what this "air gun" stuff is all about.  Bring your own pellet rifles or pistols, or use the club guns.  Range officers/instructors are on hand to help get you started and improve your technique if you are so inclined.  Bring your whole family for some safe and fun airgun shooting!
