We’ll be closed only on December 24th and 25th. Rounding out the year: an Open Individual on Monday the 29th, an Open team on the 30th and a 0-300 Team on the 31st. We’ll be open as usual on New Year’s Day.
Please be mindful of parking: park facing Deerfoot Rd. We don’t want anyone backing out onto that busy street. Fill the back line against the trees before the area near the sidewalk on busy days(especially Monday and Open Days). There’s plenty of room then without blocking the access.
