New Gate Lock

Locks at LWGC will be changed on Saturday morning February 3/2018. New keys can be obtained from Rod Macdonell by calling him at (807) 468-8342 and arranging a pick up time. Proof of current year (2018) membership is required. Key cost is $5.00

If you have an old key, Rod would appreciate you turning it in to him when you pick up your new key so he can recycle it and use it in the future.

Thanks for your cooperation in this


Annually, at this time of year since 2013, the Biathlon Division have groomed their trails and have commenced snow training. Training sessions normally last about 45 minutes.

The plan is to maintain a plowed road from the highway to the club house and provide ample parking.

The road leaving the Club House parking lot will be barricaded to vehicle traffic to protect the groomed Biathlon trail from damage.

Please walk on the left side of the groomed trail which is solid like a sidewalk for easy walking.

There will be a plastic snow boggan provided for hauling your equipment to the firing line to shoot.

Good luck to our Biathlon Division athletes. May they meet their goals in 2018 and I am looking forward to hearing about their successes and achievements in the media.

Thanks for your understanding.

Monday – Pistol has priority
Wednesday – Rifle has priority
Thursday afternoon – Biathlon has priority

All other days/times are on a first come first serve basis.

Members gathered at the range on September 7, 2017 for some shooting, food and stories all in memory of Gord Dixon.  Gord was an avid shotgunner and a cherished member of the club.

We were sent this video from the Gord Dixon memorial shoot that we would like to share with everyone.  It is also posted on the shotgun page as a lasting memory of Gord.
