Health Safety First
But no matter when we open, safety first! We need to keep everyone safe and healthy. Our safety efforts are:
- Reservation for Shooting are required.
- Employees and customers are required to wear masks at all times in the shop.
- We have floors signs for one-way flow through the retail area, for the cash register, and on the range to maintain Social Distance.
- We are closing the Ladies Room. Everyone will use the Unisex Restroom, our old Men’s Restroom. We are cleaning the restroom before we open, 2-3 times during the day, and after we close. Cleaning the restrooms during the day takes time and trying to clean two restrooms will take too much time, so we are opening one restroom.
- If you are renting archery equipment for shooting, we will be sanitizing your equipment before and after the archer uses it. Bow and Arrows will be wiped down with sanitizing wipes before your equipment is assigned to you and after you are done. The arm guard will be sanitized after you are done and quarantined for 24 hours. The bow string will be quarantined for 24 hours, and every bow will have a fresh string put on the bow before the equipment is assigned to a new archer.
- If you are renting archery equipment you will have to use a finger tab or a shooting glove that is yours. If you do not have a one, we can sell you a cheap finger tab. (Of course, we can sell you a better one too.)
- Chairs will be sanitized between shooting groups.
- Social distancing will be strictly enforced.
- We will not have any tables in the seating area.
- Chairs will be 6’ apart.
- The countertop area along the corridor to the restrooms will be closed so we use it as a 6’ wide corridor to the restrooms.
- The Waiting Line is moved to 6’ from Shooting Line.
- Every other archery range lane will be used.
- There will be Sneeze Shields between each lane.
- There will be marked walkways for retrieving arrows so social distancing is maintained.
- When we do a “double line” each group retrieves arrows independently. Group A shoots, Group B shoots, then Group A retrieves their arrows, then Group B retrieves their arrows. Then everyone shoots again.
- We removed the coffee service and snacks.
- We still offer cold drinks. An employee will get your cold drink while wearing gloves.
The shop will be cleaned and sanitized before we open for the day and often during the day. Doorknobs, stair rails, the credit card terminal, and other “high touch” items will be sanitized often during the day.
By doing these things we will have prevent the spread of the pandemic disease.
