All Club meetings and activities will adopt personal choice on masks, social distancing and vaccination as our protocol. As a Club we will not ask for vaccination status and we will leave it up to each participant or guest to make their own personal choice on the use of masks and social distancing. Making this statement will provide any potential member, guest, participant, or event goer the knowledge of what to expect and choose based on their personnel beliefs.
