Ranges Usage During Pandemic (revision 5-8-20)

The LASC board has voted to reopen our LASC ranges Tuesday, May 12 subject to the following rules. This notice does not constitute a blanket reopening, rather a limited reopening while the pandemic continues. Hours are 8 AM – 8 PM for all ranges. Per the governor’s directive, “shooting ranges may be open by appointment and shall ensure that appropriate social distancing measures are in place” *.

For example, with 15 shooting stations on the rifle line, every other station can be used which would allow up to 8 individuals or perhaps family twosomes to use that range. The Alpha pistol pit is wide enough and can accommodate 10 shooters simultaneously. Likewise, the fixed target archery range will be limited to 7 shooting stations. The practice 3D range will be available to a maximum of 2 people. Use your backside to steady a target while pulling arrows to avoid touching targets. With shotgunning, the passing of controllers needs consideration. Since in both Skeet and 5-Stand we have two controllers; we can avoid passing the controllers between the shooters. If a controller must be passed, wipe it off with a disinfectant wipe. The shooter(s) who opens specific bird machines for use should also be the same one(s) who put them away.

We all have some degree of “cabin fever” these last few months and the expectation is our facilities will become constantly used. We ask for your patience now that the ranges have reopened on a limited basis. As circumstances surrounding COVID-19 relax, the rules will be modified accordingly.

The combination has been reset back to its former number.  You will receive the new gate combo once the 2020 - 2021 membership materials have been mailed out.
