We'll see if Oakdale follows suit.

It'll be even more interesting to see if the Dakota County Sheriff's office walks back the pandemic closure of DCGC.

No reason not to let people go tho the range and shoot; less close contact, and touching of common surfaces than almost anything else I can think of. Match cancellations seems to be the correct thing to do, for now.
I wonder to what degree the powers that be in the clubs affected will act.

Only potential concern I can think of is the lock to get in. Better keep your sanitizer ready.

Not knowing anything about DCGC, that was the one potential concern I came up with.
OGC, on the other hand has RFID cards, and an electronic gate.

I just saw that too, wonder if OGC will change the closure status now. On a related note, I'm glad I saw this on the forum because I'm not on the e-mail list even though I've requested to be at least twice. (yes I'm a member)

When I was a member they had a number code lock.

I wonder if they still require sign in, that would be a point of problem.

Also at DCGC the safety flag and cones.

The acting President, Tom Mader, has sent the new info to the BOD members for their revote on whether to reopen to members only.
Nothing to see here. Continue swimming.

That's my take.

Being a cynical curmudgeon, I openly wonder if minds will change when traditional public hour$ approach.

Do you suppose the reimbursements mentioned refer to compensation for dues paid?
And while I personally hit the rule of 75 (no more service hours), I did enjoy, and would continue to help teach FAS, and work the Wash. Cty Fair airgun booth, there are many who need to get their time in. How does that work with an extended range closure?
Further, i wonder if the board is winging this or the club's bylaws were written to cover such a situation...

Could the BOD decision have something to do that with the closed club house that there are no bathroom facilities unless they have porta potty’s. Then someone has to disinfect them on a daily basis if not more.

They have porta potties. They could leave disinfecting materials there or close them. Bathrooms are not required if you are not open to the public.

Several the parks I spend time in have closed their buildings/toilets,and have instead brought in porta potties.Imay be wrong, but I don't see any daily attention to them.

You guy's don't know what's in your club's bylaws?
