Archery Range Protocols

The Rifle Pistol and Archery Ranges will be open starting Saturday, May 23. The Shotgun Range is aiming for a June opening. There have been some necessary construction and procedures created to keep our members safe. Our goal is to enjoy the ranges while maintaining social distance guidelines and health safety procedures. The following is what to expect at the Archery Range.

  • If you do not feel well, stay home – It is impossible to make any area completely safe. If you are in the high-risk category or you have underlying additional health problems, please continue to stay at home.
  • Until further notice, the target bags are open for use. The 3-D course is open only during shoots when range officers are present.
  • Guests are allowed only if they have presented a signed Hold Harmless agreement and are accompanied by a member. 
  • Social distancing must be observed at all times, and no more than ten people may congregate in any given location. 
  • Masks are required when you enter the target range area. You can take them off when you are shooting.
  • The target range can be used by no more than three archers at a time and no more than one shooter at each shooting station.
  • When the 3-D course does open, the course will run with squads of two, up to four archers if all are immediate family in the same household.
  • Those entering the range must wash their hands after handling the gate
  • Those leaving the range should wash or sanitize their hands after handling the gate.
  • Be aware that arrow retrieval may require hand contact with the targets. For that reason, archers should bring hand sanitizer, alcohol and/or gloves with them to the range.
  • Members may avail themselves of the port o-john, but cleaning procedures posted on the door must be rigorously followed.
  • Soap and other cleaning agents will be left out at the pavilion, and by the target range.
