Information from The CFG E-Board:
The global outbreak of COVID-19, or Coronavirus, continues to evolve and disrupt many aspects of our daily lives. This is a difficult and uncertain time, and our first concern is for our members and their families. We hope you are all safe and taking precautions to stay that way.
As such, the E-Board has made some changes:
First, the April, May and now June meetings have been cancelled. We all know we have a well seasoned membership group which are currently considered to be at a high risk of vulnerability. We also know that the distance between attendees would be much less than currently allowed. I think we all can agree there is not a good enough reason to have a gathering to basically pay the bills. It is not in the best interest of all members and their families to hold the meeting at this time.
Second, are postponing any opening day events including our delivery of fish. We would be throwing the money away and simply feeding all the predatory animals that frequent the club.
Third, Range Open with restrictions and Five stand is OPEN with social distancing.
Fourth, Steak Fry season will be revisited in the June.
Lastly, the Clubhouse is open with restrictions until things get back to normal. It should not be the responsibility of the House Committee to keep the building Sanitized on a constant basis. We would have no idea if the last person(s) practiced safe sanitary practices. It should be limited to an as needed group only.
This is an unprecedented time and we are encouraged by all the good we are seeing in our communities despite all the challenges we’re facing. We hope you, your family, friends, and loved ones stay safe. Take care of yourselves and each other. We’ll get through this.
Sincerely, The CFG E-Board

They were able to work directly with the Department of the Attorney General, the Governor's Office and the Director of the Department of Business regulations to secure guidelines to minimize possible health risks and reopen ranges. This took a lot of time and effort on the part of your RI Firearms' Team, working directly with Attorney General Peter Neronha, and Attorney Elizabeth M. Tanner, Director of the Department of Business Regulations, to secure our reopening.
