WELCOME TO AMA SPORTSMEN’S ASSOCIATION
ANNOUNCEMENT July 5. 2020
Hi everyone, hope all is well with you. It’s good to see many of you back sitting on the patio enjoying a drink and a burger on Saturdays and dinners on Friday nights.
We want the bartenders to know that we have started to use the schedule again, and hope if you cannot make your commitment, please make a trade, or ask someone to fill in for you.
The club is open (patio use only, and you must wear a mask to use the washrooms) on Fridays 4 pm to close, Saturdays 12 noon to close (burgers from 12:30 to 2 pm), Thursdays 12 noon to close. Also starting Monday, July 6th, the patio will be open for lunch from 11 am to 2 pm, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The menu is burgers, wings, fish on a bun and more. Come out and enjoy our patio and a great lunch by Karen. We are still doing the fish and wing dinners on Friday nights from 4 pm to 6 pm (take out or eat on the patio), the take out is also being offered for the lunch times.
Please remember, when you are on the patio to respect social distancing, and that we are under the Governments recommendations for group sizes of 10 or less as your social circle. At this time we can have only 50% of our patio in use to conform to the 6 foot distance rules. Please pass this on to non members who may be coming to enjoy our club.
There are many things we need to think about during these trying times with COVID-19 and the Governments’ orders, and if someone has an issue or sees something they think is not right, please forward your concerns to one of the board members. The last thing we need is bad publicity. We all want the AMA Sportsmen’s club to be successful.
Have a great summer and be safe, what ever you do, and we hope things get back to some kind of normal soon.
