ATTENTION EVERYONE !!!
I’ve had a couple of phone calls from members who have bought restricted firearms and have run into problems with the CFO’s office when trying to register their firearms and obtain an ATT for it. The CFO representative had informed our members that we (CLF&G) were not certified for restricted as well as our membership cards didn’t have our full legal name on the cards.
I have spoken with our CFO and they have assured me that the problem has been fixed. There is a note on our file stating that the “Cold Lake District Sportsmans Fish and Game Association” is also known as, as well as operated as “Cold Lake Fish and Game Club”.
If anyone has any trouble at all with registering your restricted firearms or obtaining an ATT, contact me immediately and I’ll contact our CFO directly and straighten the problem out immediately.
Have fun and enjoy the range
The Range now has restricted firearms status. The Cold Lake Sun
did a wonderful job covering the great news.
Cold Lake Fish and Game Club is proud to announce that we have officially been granted RESTRICTED CERTIFICATION as of 23 December 2016.
We are certified restricted & non-restricted on the 25m, 100m and 600m ranges.
Please enjoy your range!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from CLF&G!
The range has:
a 25m x 25m range
a 50m L x 40m W range
a 100m L x 40m W range
a 650m L x 60m W range
a skeet / trap shotgun range about 500 meters to the east of the sign in shack
Congratulations to the CLF&G rifle raffle winner, GARY HENAULT, proud new owner of a Savage Model 11, Ducks Unlimited Edition chambered in .243 Win with a Bushnell 3×9 scope.
Archery Range Improvements!
Well folks the archery targets are finally up! They are currently placed from 20-60 yards from the firing line. Each target has a cover, so REMOVE IT BEFORE SHOOTING please! Also, NO BROADHEADS are to be used on these targets.
I encourage all the archers to come out and give them a try. The range has been mowed and we need to get the word out so that people are aware of the improvements.
A lot has been done so come out and have a look. The narrow old brush covered 500m is now a wide open 600m rifle range and new metal gongs and target stands will soon be placed at the 400m, 500m and 600m.
Thank you everyone for your patience during this construction, the inconvenience is well worth it. We’ll keep you posted as more develops, check your email and Facebook or the website for info.
If you have any questions or concerns please email the club.
Message from the President:
Over the past year, we have accomplished many great things!
We have developed an excellent relationship with the City of Cold Lake and secured a financial grant of $100,000 to build an indoor shooting facility. We have also, received Restricted Certification (of the 25 meter range for now). Over the past summer, we have completed numerous construction projects, namely on the range access road, including drainage ditches, culverts and grading. We have also completed construction of a “club house” storage shed, a “warming hut” and sign-in shack. And, we have installed new range safety flag poles at individual ranges. We have also continued to develop and foster a great relationship with Canadian Tire where memberships are available. Over the past year, we have enjoyed several events including an archery shoot, fishing derby and “swap and shop” with great success!
I look forward to seeing you at the AGM. We have many more exciting things on the go and value your input and participation. Please remember that this AGM, we will also hold the Executive Committee election. 2016 will be another exciting year for CLF&G.
Our large storage/club house is now finished. A huge Thanks to all the volunteers that gave their time to make this happen and a very special thanks to Rona for the donation of the basic structure. We are getting there, fellow Members. Some may say it’s too slow but we have come a very long ways in the last three years.

Council Members Visit
We had a fantastic Club turnout for the Council Members visit. Stan’s Commonwealth Shooting Demonstration was a big hit. The other displays included Archery and photos and videos of Club activities. The AirSoft branch put on a great presentation complete with smoke grenades.
A BBQ lunch with homemade burgers was served up thanks to De’Los Allen. All the Council Members and the Mayor were shown around the north and south ends of the range as well as the gravel pit areas and the range road. They found the visit very informative and were very impressed by the Clubs efforts.
Here is the story from the Cold Lake Sun
Here is the story from NewCap News, it starts at 2:04 min in.
We approached Somerville Construction for possible help with a donation of large pipe for heavy duty culverts on our access road to the range and they absolutely came through for us. They trucked three 40′ pieces of pipe from Wandering River ( no short distance) at no charge and delivered to the area at the beginning of our road when leaving the pit area. Another company called Xani Brothers came to our rescue to unload these big pipes at no charge. They drove a crane truck in at the same time the pipe arrived and off loaded the pipe. A huge thank you to both these companies for their assistance.
The Fish and Game Club has built a new Warm Up Hut and Fire Pit!
Of the companies that have been a tremendous help to the club with the road improvement and recent upgrades to our range made a small request for something in return. The favor was the building of a warm up hut at the Range that the snowmobile club cold use to have a break and warm up a bit. A small request in consideration of the help this company has been to us. That favor has been fulfilled and the warm up hut and fire ring now sits on range land close to the club house pad and the shotgun range. Thank you very much Dean Dube. The all steel structure was constructed pre-fab in town and assembled at the range. Special thanks to John Senior ( Soggy Feet), Ray Morawietz, Stan Wiktoroski for the help to assemble on site.
Gravel Pit Clean Up was a big Success!
Members of the Cold Lake Fish and Game Association, in cooperation with Double D Bobcat Services and the City of Cold Lake, along with a few community residents, spent the day cleaning up the gravel pit area behind the Base and in the woods along the Fish and Game Associations access road. A friend of one of our members brought his bobcat out and it was a tremendous help. Read More Here! See pictures on out Photo Gallery!
