We are closely watching the developments of the Covid-19 (coronavirus) here in the region and making decisions for the club with the safety of members and staff in mind.

Currently, the club will operate on Sunday.

Out of an abundance of caution, we will not have any food (hot dogs) during this time, and support contactless payments by credit card or phone. We will try to limit the number of people in the clubhouse and remind all to practice safe social boundaries during this time.

If you feel ill or present with any symptoms of the virus, we urge you to follow all CDC guidelines on getting help and self-quarantine.

As this national emergency progresses, the club will adjust to meet the demands for the members and general safety.

Upcoming, we may need to postpone the April board meeting and elections. The club will run with its current board during the emergency until we can hold a special election. Everything is very fluid at this time and destined to change.
