Minneapolis Gun Club will be open starting Saturday April 18:
Minnesota’s Governor Walz has proclaimed that we can open the outdoor ranges. This will require us to manage the facility differently to keep up social distancing and implement safety protocols for both our customers and employees. In order to facilitate the safe opening of the club grounds we will be instituting a few temporary rules for the shooters to follow.
1 ) Shooters must come out on an appointment basis only. This will be done by calling the Club and scheduling your shooting time. You will need to know the time and number of rounds you wish to shoot. All shooting will be done in consecutive rounds. Upon completion of your rounds in your time slot you must pack up and leave the grounds. You must complete your rounds within the given time slots so the next shooters can take the field. There will not be any socializing on the club property between, before or after rounds.
2 ) Shooters are not allowed into the club house.
3 ) Shooters will not be allowed to touch or adjust the equipment. This includes the voice calls and card readers. The cards will be handed to the puller to have the rounds put on the field. The voice calls are to be set as they are when we open and left alone.
4 ) All Skeet shooting will be done in squads of 5 or less by appointment. Social distancing must be observed, or you will be asked to leave. You will be allowed 15 min per round in the schedule.
5 ) All trap rounds will be done in squads of 5 or less by appointment. You will be allowed 15 min per round in the schedule. Social distancing must be observed, or you will be asked to leave.
6 ) Five stand will be limited to squads of 5 or less by appointment. If you are waiting for the squad ahead to finish you must do so by remaining in or around your vehicle in the lower parking area.
7 ) The Governor’s executive order allows for team sports, and competitions, with groups of up to twenty five outdoors.
