The Los Alamos Sportsmen’s Club reopened Tuesday under limited conditions including access by appointment only while observing social distancing as required by the governor’s directive.
The outdoor ranges are open but the indoor range and clubhouse are closed until further notice because work is being done on the floor. Once reopened, no more than four people at a time will be allowed in the classroom or indoor firing range at any one time.
Members are advised to practice social distancing, staying six feet apart. Masks, wipes and gloves are optional but recommended. Groups are limited to four or fewer people.
Members are also required to make an online one-hour appointment to use the club and to have a hard copy of their proof of allotted time with them when they are at the range. Extensive signage has been installed at the club to facilitate safe movement at ranges while observing social distancing.
The club board has directed members to embrace virus safety as diligently as they do firearms/archery safety.
