The Clubhouse will remain closed and
will possibly open May 8th or we will follow state level guidance to select a date.
** Update 5/7/2020 – We will permit clubhouse access when York County goes to a “Code Yellow” status. **
Any person proceeding onto Club property is doing so at your own risk. The York Rifle Range is not responsible for your choice to use the Range.
Not reading the guidelines below does not exempt you from following them. Not following these guides may have you and your guests, if you brought them, asked to remove yourself from the Range by a Club Officer or Director.
- Continue to follow the State recommended guidelines for Social Distancing and gathering in groups.
- If you feel sick, GO HOME.
- 2 Guests per member will be allowed as normal – Sign in your guest(s) and pay the $1 guest fee BEFORE you visit any range. The guest log-in sheet will be on the Porch by the targets.
- If you need targets, there will be a limited supply available on the Clubhouse porch and a place to put your money for what you take, targets are not FREE. It is suggested, until the clubhouse is reopened, that you bring your own range approved paper targets.
- The York Rifle Range does not have any paid employees to decontaminate after each person’s visit.
- You should treat your visit at each range as if it is contaminated and take appropriate actions when you are done using the range. If you bring disinfectant, you can clean and disinfect the area you will be using.
On March 27, 2020 The Governor extended his STAY AT HOME ORDER to include York County, PA.
At this time, the Officers and Directors of the York Rifle Range have decided to CLOSE the entire range due to the coronavirus threat.
We will follow the Governor’s and the Secretary of Health’s directions regarding the coronavirus going forward.
By closing the range, we hope it will also allow the range to “Self-cleanse” by not having new contamination by someone who may not even be aware they are carrying the virus.
We hope and pray that you and your family stay safe and healthy, and look forward to seeing you here at the range in the near future as we continue to practice Social Distancing so that we can beat this virus, not only here at the range but in Pennsylvania and the entire United States.
Updates on this closure will be posted here on the website in the top banner and/or as “News” post.
