Erik, If the closure reduces the amount of time we are open to the public, it conceivably could increase our dues. ;)


Sounds like OGC BoD thinking.

...or operate as a club, as opposed to a poorly run commercial business.

You guys are talking crazy, the weird hybrid private "club"/public rental range model works perfectly.

If you think we are crazy now, just wait about a week and a half with no trigger time, cooped up in the house, and nothing but time in front of a computer screen. ;)

I'm going to end up with so much loaded ammo that I'll have to shoot a lot more this summer/fall.

Just a matter of time before someone starts talking in tongues.

I have memberships at 2 clubs, both closed until the 10th :cry: Oh, well the game farm I have been using for dog training is open so I am going to go do that. Hunting was one of the allowed activities by the governor and procuring food supplies is essential travel. Plus dogs can't get it. Check, check, check

Correct, because they are specifically exempted under MN 624.7192 - or that was the Governor's office excuse anyways

This just posted.

Can I golf? Gov. Tim Walz is still figuring that out

As Minnesota’s two-week stay-at-home order to help slow the spread of COVID-19 goes into effect on Friday night, golfers around the state have a big question on their mind: Will they be able to play?

The answer, right now, is no. But while Gov. Tim Walz ordered golf courses and country clubs to close as part of an emergency executive order signed last week, the governor said on a Friday conference call that he was still looking into the issue.
