The executive committee met on May 5th to discuss relaxing restrictions around COVID-19. The following items were agreed upon by the executive committee and take effect immediately.
- The office will be open during normal business hours. For those folks that have been inquiring about getting a new membership, please come by during normal business hours to sign up.
- Clubs are allowed to continue activities
- The grace period on renewing memberships will last through June 2020. So, as long as you're a current member and renew your membership before July 1st, you will not have to pay the $20 reactivation fee for your gate card.
In addition to the above, it is recommended that members wear masks, though it is not required. We also ask that members practice social distancing and do not attend the range if they feel unwell.
