Unfortunately, we are still under the governor’s mandate restricting the number of people at each event and use of the clubhouse.
While I know that some of you do not agree with this mandate, we are using a state- owned range and must follow their guidelines if we want to continue to use the range.
Since we are not allowed to enter the clubhouse, even to use the restroom facilities, we are providing a port-o-let located near our building by the trap range.

We were required to submit the following “covid 19 safety protocol” in order to continue to use the facilities.
Hopefully this will not be in effect much longer, but until they relax the restrictions,
please continue to follow these protocols so that we can continue to use the range.

  • All events are held outdoors.

  • All shooting positions will be at least 6 feet apart.

  • No more than 10 people will be allowed at a time. If there are more than 10 people present, they must wait in their cars until a shooting position becomes available. No mass gatherings will be allowed.

  • All scorekeepers/range safety officers will maintain at least 6 feet distance from competitors.

  • Hand sanitizer and sanitizing supplies will be available and bench rest stands will be sanitized after each use.

  • Masks will be required any time that 6 feet social distancing cannot be achieved.

  • Clubhouse is off limits. Port-O-Let will be maintained as restroom facilities. Hand sanitizer will be provided.

  • Range Safety Officers will be present at all events to enforce the above protocols.

  • We will continue to encourage all vulnerable individuals at higher risk for severe illness from Covid 19 to use their best judgement and delay attending.

  • For the safety of all attendees, we ask that anyone with an elevated temperature (100.5 degrees Fahrenheit or above) or showing signs of illness (coughing, shortness of breath, sneezing) remain at home during this time
