*UPDATE on GHSC REOPENING*

A message from the GHSC President, Le Rodenberg

Many of you have been wondering when we will reopen.  At this time, I can only give you an approximately date.  As most of you may or may not be aware our operations are subject to a City of Gig Harbor ordinance and the terms of our city license.  Being in the city limits puts us in a position that other shooting sport facilities may not be in.  I confirmed with the City that we fall into Phase 3 of the Governor’s 4-Phase plan for the State reopening businesses. Phase 3 is estimated to occur around the third week in June.  That estimated phase 3 date may change depending on new case statistics.  We will update the website as we get closer to the end of June.

The club must have written temporary “COVID Protocol” in place and displayed prior to reopening to assure the safety and health of members, volunteers and staff.  I have asked the Chairman of each of our venues to draft such a plan for their particular venue.  Club management will review those drafts and formulate a protocol to implement.  Along with a ‘Covid protocol’ we will need to survey our volunteer Range Officers and Range Masters to determine who feels comfortable returning to their shifts.  Many of our volunteers fall within the category of people more susceptible to falling victim of the virus.  The safety and health of our volunteers, members and the public is our number one priority.
