As you know we are a member-based club with a member-volunteers in lieu of staff for most activities. As such, we cannot guarantee the cleanliness of the range as it pertains to the Corona Virus COVID-19. While we have a hired cleaning service to clean the clubhouse and bathrooms with regularity – we do not have daily cleaning staff to disinfect surfaces, equipment, etc. Therefore, the indoor range is closed to the public for 30 days.
- UPDATE 5/16/2020
- The indoor range is open
- The restrooms are still available to members using the outdoor range.
- Members that are feeling ill should avoid coming to the club until you are well.
- The outdoor range is open to members provided you follow social distancing practices.
Members using the outdoor range are encouraged to practice social distancing, frequent hand washing, drink a lot of water and follow CDC recommendations. We also recommend you do not handle bows, arrows, or equipment of another member/shooter.
