We are planning on opening the club again to members beginning Monday, July 6th with the COVID-19 guidelines outlined below:

1. For the time being the club will now be open Monday thru Thursday from 6 PM to 9 PM.  Young engineers can sign-up on any night, not just Thursdays.

2. During the hours the club is open we will only allow 10 members to run per night. That is the reason for the sign-up below.  If you have not signed up, you will not be allowed in the club.


3. You can only sign-up for 1 night a week every other week. The reason for this is to give ALL members an opportunity to run.

4. All members will be required to wear masks on the night they are running.  This is not optional.

5. All club cars and engines have been stored.  So this means you will need to use your own equipment to run.  Please bring your own throttles. The clubs will not be available for use.

6. Club is open to MEMBERS ONLY until further notice.

7. Each night will have the coordinators below that will open and close the club.
