Pistol Range Access

The Board is pleased to announce that the road down to the pistol range and the associated parking lot have been cleared of snow and are now accessible by vehicle.

Special thanks to Braden Seguin of Future Builders for donating his time, equipment and operating skills to clear the snow off the Pistol road and parking lot.

The usual hardworking group of volunteers had a busy morning removing the large snow berm and assisting the road clearing, thanks to all who participated.

In Memorial

ARTHUR GEORGE LADD III “The Bear”

Born: Aug 26, 1948

Date of Passing: Mar 01, 2019

https://passages.winnipegfreepress.com/passage-details/id-262542/LADD_ARTHUR

We knew him as Art Ladd. Art and Shirley moved to Kenora around 2012 and became involved with our Pistol Division. Art became Pistol Chairman and Shirley as ATT person. Arthur was a gentleman whose volunteerism, dedication and devotion to LWGC helped carry us forward until his term on the executive ended in 2018. One trait Art displayed was determination. Despite numerous health challenges, Arthur always gave back more to LWGC than he took. His name will be added to the Departed Members Plaque in the Main Club House. We will miss him.
