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.

·          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 if not fully  vaccinated..

·         Clubhouse restroom may be used, with a limit of 1 person in the building at a time.   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.
