Getting to Boomtown

Boomtown is the Cowboy Action Shooting Range at the Courtenay Fish & Game Association. We are located at 3780 Colake Road, Comox Valley Regional District, on Vancouver Island, about

5 miles (8 kilometers) southwest of Courtenay, British Columbia.

 

GPS coördinates are Lat. 49.6483061 Long. -125.0933933.

 

There's an easy way to use these GPS coördinates: using your cursor, wipe the string of Lat. & Long. numbers, i.e. 49.6483061 Long. -125.0933933. Paste these numbers into your mapping program. Delete (cut) the Long. out of the string, leaving only one, repeat one, space between the numbers. Be sure to leave the minus (-) sign which indicates west of the Prime Meridian, otherwise you'll end up somewhere in Inner Mongolia - no kidding. Click enter and - BINGO! - you should be at the desired location.
