SMGC Is Open To Guests & Public Activities
Posted: February 4, 2021 at 9:04 pm by Nick Wagner

GOOD NEWS! Members may once again bring guests and the club is open to the public. The clubhouse is also open but we do have restrictions in place such as a 10 person limit and a face mask that covers the mouth and nose is required at all times when inside. Disinfectant will be provided to wipe down surfaces and coffee service is not available. Social distancing is still necessary everywhere on the property to help reduce the spread of virus’s. Covid restrictions/procedures at the indoor range remain unchanged.

Questions or concerns can be directed to Timothy Bunch, SMGC President & Safety Director.

Members, as a result in the increase of Covid-19  in our area,  SMGC will no longer be open to the public  and members should not bring guests to SMGC until further notice.

We hope that you will understand the need and support this.
