Before handling any shared equipment please use the hand sanitizer provided and PLEASE do not attend the range if you have any flue like symptoms. We now need to keep two sign in registers when attending the RANGE. The Co-vid 19 register needs to be an electronic sign so please use the QR Code. If you don't have a mobile phone ask another member to sign you in. The NSW Firearms attendance record will remain a paper sign in but without the Co-vid sign in details.
