What's New with RFVSA

Range Open

Protocol for RFVSA Shooting Range
New rules for the RFVSA shooting range.
These rules were 
formulated in order to open our range under the Eagle County
distancing rules & regulations concerning the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • All members/shooters are notified that they are responsible for social distancing, six feet between each individual while on shooting range and parking area. Club house will remain closed to all members except range officers.
  • All members/shooters must wear a mask or face covering and it is the their responsibility to provide face covering.
  • All members/shooters are responsible for personal hygiene. Hand sanitizer will be provided at both the skeet and trap range.
  • All members/shooters are notified that they enter the range at their own risk and that the they may come in contact with the Covid-19 virus.
  • In order to comply with rules of social distancing, there will be only eight (8) shooters allowed in the each shooting fields (trap or skeet) of the RFVSA shooting range as long as there is a range officer at that field. Do not enter a shooting field where there are eight shooters and 1 range officer. Please wait for an open slot at one of the 2 fields. If there is no range officer, that field is closed.
  • There will be a Gate Keeper at our gate to monitor the amount of shooters allowed into the range during operation. This is to insure the person count of sixteen (16) during operation (eight at each field). Those shooters waiting to get in will be asked to wait in the rifle/pistol range parking area (if space available) or wait down in the Lake Christine parking area. The gate keeper will notify you when space is available on the range.
  • On busy days, shooters will be limited to three (3) rounds per individual shooter, in order to give other shooters the opportunity to shoot. If their is no one waiting then there is no limit. All operation, including shooter limits and amount of individuals at the range, are at the discretion of the range officer.
  • Note: In order to have gate keepers, RFVSA will need members to volunteer to perform this duty. Please step up and volunteer for thirty minutes to an hour to act as a gate keeper. This a vital position needed in order to open our range.
