On April 17 2020, the Executive Order 20-38 was issued in Minnesota.
It allowed safe Outdoor Recreation Activities which includes Outdoor Shooting Ranges operations.
We Are Open.
Clubhouse access is limited for restroom only. We believe our shooting sports enthusiasts should have access to proper handwashing and restroom use.
The MN DNR guidelines for outdoor recreational facilities are found here:
The 2020 Summer Olympic Games have to wait until 2021, so we welcome you to the next best thing.......
The 2020 Social Distance Summer Shotgun Games.
Start date is June 1st, last day is August 30th.
We will make The Games a great Outdoor Recreational Activity in Minnesota.
"Detachments" (teams) will be of 2-6 shooters. We'll take the top 2 scores from the detachment for standings.
How will the Games work?
You and your social distant shooting buddies will have 12 weeks to post scores.
All clay target shotgun games offered will be 6 individual scores of 50 targets.
Basically you have 12 weeks to post 6 scores per game.
Social Distancing rules apply.
The Social Distance Summer Shotgun Games will include the following activities......shoot one, two, or heck just try them all:
Sporting Clays - 16 yard trap - Wobble trap
Warm-up stations and/or side games may be available.
Tactical Shotgun galleries with their steel plates and clays setups will also be a part of the Games.
Spread the word about The Games and we'll get you and your "detachment" signed up.
The final - "Social Distance Shootout" to take place weekend of August 29-30
The Shootout will be the conclusion of the Summer Shotgun Games - Let's make it a good time
On Wednesday, April 8, 2020 the Executive Order 20-33 was issued in Minnesota. It was an extension of the governor's previous "stay at home" order.
Section 6.o.ii of the new executive order also mandates that “gun ranges and clubs” be closed down for the duration of the order - currently that is until May 4, 2020.
Right now we are mandated to be closed so we will follow Executive Order 20-33, bottom of page 9 outlines the closure. Click here for the exec order 20-33 PDF.
We do not want to be out of compliance and penalized.
We want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
Ranges outside of MN are noting changes in their operations with social distancing options, clubhouse access restrictions, wiping down of handheld trap controls and shooting carts, changing payment options, etc.
Be smart. Be safe.
We never foreseen this happening.
WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS
