Trap

Bethlehem Rod and Gun Club

Trap Range Covid 19 Rules

Due to the Covid19 pandemic, we will be having trap starting on the 14 June 2020 (10-2PM). Then Mondays 5PM to 9PM. These are the rules we will be following during all the Trap Shoots to protect our members and guest.

There will be no more than 12 people at the trap range area at one time. This will consist of 5 members shooting, 1 scorer in the booth, 5 members at the tables under the canopies waiting to shoot. All others will wait at their vehicles or under the pavilion.

The scorer will call the next 5 members to shoot from the booth. The next shooters will move from the tables and take their place at the stations. The next round of shooters will then move to the tables.

Social Distancing will be followed when possible.

Mask will be encouraged everywhere that Social Distancing cannot be followed.  Keep in mind that the shooter stands are not 6 feet apart, so mask will be worn at your discretion.

I would like to thank everyone for your cooperation during the trying times. Hopefully, we can get back to our normal routine soon.
