WE ARE OPEN AGAIN, WITH RESTRICTIONS

THE STOCKBRIDGE SPORTSMEN'S CLUB has reopened as of Saturday, May 23rd, in compliance with Phase 1 of Governor Baker's Executive Order 33, which places severe restrictions on all businesses. It's a start, and we are already making plans for compliance with Phase 2 which the state has labeled "Cautious". A reopening letter has been mailed to all current club members, and signage including range use rules and regulations have been posted on the club grounds. Some of these documents, plus some COVID-19 advisory posters, can be viewed by clicking on the links below. Please review them before coming to the club. Unfortunately we must delay the reopening of the horseshoe court due to the use of shared equipment. We have ordered an electrostatic sprayer which can be used to sanitize the interior of our outbuildings and lead to their reopening in Phase 2. Welcome back!
