All Events Cancelled through April 11 2020 due to COVID-19

Due to the current public health orders regarding COVID-19 ALL sanctioned matches and group events at the range are cancelled through April 11th, 2020. Please contact event organizers regarding specific events.
The range will still be open to members during this time for their personal use however some additional guidelines have been added as follows.
On March 26, 2020 Vice President Rigo Neira announced via email the Executive Board of Director’s decision to cancel all scheduled Discipline events and group practices through April 11, 2020 in accordance with the Department of Public Health & Environment Order 20-24 dated March 25, 2020.  Pertinent information from that email was also posted on the WCFW website informing all members of the cancellation of scheduled events for that period, but allowing membership use of range facilities to continue as long as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Social Distancing Requirements are adhered to.  Additionally, to ensure the Executive BOD’s decision was in compliance with the intent of PHO 20-24 by allowing individual membership continued range use, the Weld County Department of Public Health & Environment COVID-19 Hotline was contacted on March 26, 2020 and informed of our decision.  As long as strict compliance of Social Distancing Requirements (SDR) were followed, they were in agreement with the Board’s decision.
To that end, the following additional guidelines and clarification are provided:
1)  Group practice sessions are not authorized.  Use of individual ranges or shotgun fields must comply with SDR’s.
2)  The clubhouse and pistol classroom are closed for use to keep cleaning and sanitizing requirements to a minimum. 
3)  All portable toilet facilities are closed.
4)  Indoor restroom facilities located in the clubhouse, benchrest rifle range, and pistol classroom will remain open for use with increased daily cleaning and sanitizing.
5)  Non compliance of the SDR’s will require range closure. 
The current criteria from the CO DPH&E and the CDC COVID-19 Social Distancing Requirements are subject to change and will require continuous monitoring to ensure WCFW stays in compliance.
