COVID-19 UPDATE​ 5/2/2020

Dear Shooters & Parents,

I hope that you are all doing well and are staying healthy!  The coaches and I miss seeing you all at our regular Thursday night practices!

As many of you know, the Governor amended the Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Stay Connected Executive Order #2020-33. This Order is in
effect until May 15, 2020, at which time it can be modified, extended or rescinded. 

Since this updated order does not change the club's current procedures, all division matches and practices will continue to be suspended until new guidelines are in place.  Rio Salado Sportsman's Club will continue to remain open, but only the Public Range, Member Ranges (for personal use), and the Sporting Clays Course will be operational at this time.

It was my hope that we would be able to resume Junior Division practices in May, but for now, that does not seem likely.  I am still planning on having our End of the Year Fun Shoot/Pot Luck and Awards Ceremony on June 4th.

Please keep monitoring the Rio Juniors’ social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram and watch for emails from me with updates.

Thank you all for your understanding.  I miss seeing you at the range!

Stay safe and healthy!

John Karadsheh
