Monthly Club Meeting Cancellation (May 2020)

Apr 24, 2020


The regularly scheduled Oneida Rifle Club monthly meeting at our club house in May is officially cancelled. Meetings and regular club activities will resume as soon as health officials determine public gatherings can be conducted safely.

The Oneida Rifle Club board and officers wish to inform each member of the following:

"Due to the State and Federal recommendations related to the COVID-19 Virus, all official club activities have been cancelled until further notice. The range remains open to member use, with certain restrictions, which are posted at the club. We urge all members to use good judgment and limit any possible exposure at this time. Please stay tuned for further updates."

Statement from the board regarding range use:

While most activities are being cancelled or shut down as a result of the COVID-19 virus, we understand that shooting and the use of the Indoor Range is something that many ORC Members are hoping to continue to be available to them. The ORC Board of Directors has decided to allow the continued use of the Indoor Range during the COVID-19 pandemic with the following restrictions:

1. No more than 5 people shall be inside the building (clubhouse and range combined) at one time.

2. Practice the recommended 6’ social distance as required in other public places.

3. Limit shooting sessions to 60 minutes to allow others to use the range. Please sign up for Range Use Time Slots on the blackboard in the clubhouse following the posted instructions.

4. Keep the ventilation system operating continuously ON “HIGH” while in the range, even if you are not shooting. This will maximize fresh air exchange.

5. Please wipe down/disinfect any public surfaces you come in contact with, including tables, shooting stations, bathrooms and door handles. We will provide wipes/cleaning supplies to do so.

6. Be respectful of the Club property and other members personal space and range use needs.

If we can manage the continued use of the Indoor Range with these restrictions without issue, members may continue to expect the range to remain open and available. If members are not able to follow the posted restrictions, we will be forced to close all use of the range until further notice, so please work with us and your fellow club members to allow this privilege to continue.
