On May 8, the SLSC grounds and ranges reopened after a 5-week shutdown. We are still operating under COVID-19 safety guidelines and the current operating rules are posted as you swipe in and at each of the ranges and on the website under the COVID-19 Info page. Most significant is the limit of 10 persons on the range. These restrictions may lesson as we progress to full operation. The board will notify members of any changes as they occur. The board is also looking into rehosting events. Watch the calendar and your email for event announcements.
