Mass Rifle Association email this morning (implied everything else is open):

*******

The Fazio range will be closed until further notice. The switch for the air handler

is malfunctioning and will not be repaired for a few weeks.



Please abide by all rules and signage



Thank You and be Safe and Healthy

Bozrah, Connecticut - Quaker Hill Rod & Gun Club

ALL " Club Sanctioned Events" are now canceled until further notice.
Please be sure to follow the CDC guidelines regarding social distancing and ways to protect yourself and your families.
Also all work parties are canceled until a future date.
What about facilities or is it just events?

Andover sportmans just did.
Just got a text from a director, closed for duration of lockdown.......gee, you don't think they just mean me(cough,cough)
I'm on the web site now - ASC is NOT closed.

Per the site:

Trap Field Policy Change

Beginning today, Wednesday March 18, 2020 and continuing until further notice, both trap fields will be closed to the general public.

Members only will be allowed on the fields.

All operators can and will use their personal judgment on whether to open and run the field at their scheduled time.

There is no club enforced closure at this time.

Thank you for your cooperation and please, stay well.

Getting tired of being called a liar over old notices. Just repeating what a range director told me and others that work on it. Guess he was ill informed or Brad just hasn't got around to posting it.

I never called you a liar, I'm just posting what I saw on the website. I'm an active member at ASC and got a sinking feeling when I saw your post so I went to the website (still nothing posted about the club being closed). Pretty sure a member-wide e-mail would have gone out if the club was closed down until further notice. They're sent out all the time about rules on the range, guest policy, etc...

Don't know what to tell you, had plans of going there myself this AM before I got the text. If it's not posted then go, just trying to pass along info.

BTW, Fazio at MRA is OPEN to air pistols, closed to firearms (lot's of particulars at MRA, thanks for cataloguing all this!).

*****

We are allowing Fazio Range to be used for air pistol ONLY until repairs to air handler can be completed. If you use the range for air pistol, you must ensure the range closure sign is returned to the front of the range access door.

Thanks

Would it be appropriate for you to text him back and ask him to either clarify, and/or make the info available to the other members via email/website as they did with all of the other Wu-Flu directives?

Westwood Gun Club closed until April 7

maybe weather will be nicer by then

WGC Now Closed Until April 7th​

Westwood Gun Club is ceasing all operations and closing the ranges effective now through April 7th at noon, due to Massachusetts' Essential Services And Revised Gatherings Order issued March 23, 2020.

The gates are locked to prohibit member access. Board members will periodically check the property to ensure it is secured but otherwise please do not congregate on the property.

The Club Board unfortunately reached this conclusion after much discussion, reviewing a GOAL advisory memo, and conversation with town officials. This is a temporary measure in response to State Emergency Orders so unless the state issues new orders, we intend to reopen the Club on April 7th at noon.

To contact the Club Board, reply to this email or email [email protected]
