HACS NEWS FOR MEMBERS

GUN SHOWS

Our monthly shows are all held at Evergreen Hall in downtown Chilliwack. We will not be able to resume our shows until the City of Chilliwack re-opens Evergreen Hall for public events. That will not happen until Dr. Henry removes the 50 person limit on public events in BC. Hopefully we will soon have a vaccine for Covid-19.

 

MEMBERSHIPS

Please do not renew your membership this year. We only had two shows in 2020, Jan. and Feb. If you renewed your membership for 2020 it will be valid for 2021 at no extra charge.

PLEASE do not try and renew your membership by Mail as our supplies are all locked up and we have no means of mailing out membership cards at this time.

 

 

RON TYSON

Ron Tyson was one of the founding members of HACS 50 years ago in 1970.  He organized and set up the shows in Vancouver, Burnaby and Coquitlam.  He had help of course but no one worked harder than Ron.  It was a major social part of his lifestyle.  His wife traveled with him to Gun Shows across Canada and the US.  Ron has served as our President for many years now.  When we had to leave Burnaby the shows were re-located to Chilliwack where we have enjoyed several years of successful gun shows.  In appreciation for all he has done for HACS he was presented with a wall plaque of Recognition for his Service to HACS.  We intended to present the plaque at the AGM at the March show but Covid-19 struck.  Ron had tables at the Hunting & Fishing show at the Armories Hall on Princess Avenue in Chilliwack on July 11th.  I saw him there in the early morning.  He told me his last show will be at the Armories Hall in Chilliwack in Sept.  He is retiring.  I went home, got the plaque and presented it in the afternoon.  You can see how surprised and pleased he was by the photos, courtesy of Bryan Gagne.  I wanted to do the presentation at a gun show with some of his peers present.  It worked out well.
