Social distancing will still be required as well as the possibility that you may need to have a mask. So you as the match participants need to be patient and understanding when you plan on attending our matches. We all want this to be a safe environment for all participants to enjoy and you need to respect others' concerns regarding the spread of this virus.
Range capacity will be set at 24 shooters - 4 relays of 6 shooters. Please email me if you plan to attend, I will keep a running list of shooters.
