The Board, security officials and members at all levels are responsible for the application of the above procedures. The ultimate goal is to maintain our privilege of recreational shooting at CTRV in an epidemic setting. Cooperation and vigilance are vital.
If you are faced with a recalcitrant the official can call the CTSE at any time to have the individual expelled. Board members will be present on August 8 and 9 to help officials take the right measures.
