**IMPORTANT TEMPORARY RANGE CLOSURES**
Due to a mountain lion encounter this evening, Monday August 17 at 6 pm, SFA is temporarily closing the walking ranges and the 100 yard practice field. These are also known as the Red, White and Blue ranges.
SFA is waiting to hear back from the Dept. of Fish and Wildlife regarding the matter. This is not a step we take lightly, but as always, SFA’s primary concern is that of the safety of all archers on the range.
At this time, no one was hurt, and we hope that by closing the walking ranges, everyone will stay safe. The practice range, kiddie range, and alley will remain open at all times that we have a monitor on duty.
It is with great pleasure that we can announce that we are re-opening the San Francisco Archers range! The Board has worked extremely hard to make this happen.
Our re-opening is contingent on Club Members acting as Range Monitors, who will monitor all visitors to ensure that all COVID-19 Protocols are followed.
The hours for the Range are 8:00 am to 7:15 pm. Gates will close at 7:30 pm or earlier, depending on Range Monitor availability.
Please look at the SFA Calendar BEFORE coming to the range to make sure we are open. If you come to the Range and the gate is closed, it means we were unable to get Range Monitors for the day.
In order to stay open, we need Club Members to volunteer to be Range Monitors. If you are a member and would like to volunteer, please read the June 2020 version of The Arrow newsletter for contact & training details. Volunteering hours will go towards your required membership hours.
Remember to ALWAYS have your face covering with you and to maintain Social Distancing of at least 6 feet. Anyone violating SFA’s COVID-19 Protocols will be asked to leave.
We look forward to seeing you at SFA!
(For additional questions/answers about our re-opening, range monitors, etc, please read our FAQ.)
The June 2020 Arrrow Newsletter is out. You can read it here. SFA is very close to opening our range after 3 months. Many members of the Board and a few members have been working diligently and hard to get the range in compliance with the rules and regulations from both San Mateo County and San Francisco County.
In order to make SFA fully operational, we will need the help of our members. SFA will be required to staff the Range with two (2) monitors during all open hours. The Club is looking for Board Members and experienced general members (at least 2 yrs.) to volunteer for 3 hour shifts in order to have enough people to monitor the range so that we can open. You can read more in the newsletter.
We will be releasing more information regarding the COVID-19 prevention programs soon.
