Where we get to play... every day!
WRAC MEMBER UPDATED 7/31
Marathon runners encounter certain points in the race where it seems especially hard, and they might wonder if they’ll ever reach the finish line. That metaphor certainly applies to the ongoing COVID-19 operating challenges the WRAC faces, and they are made even more difficult when we don’t know exactly where the finish line is, or when we’ll get there. When we shut our doors in March, we had no idea our indoor facilities would still be closed five months later, with no end in sight to our limited operations. And yet, despite that seemingly bleak outlook, we are encouraged for a number of reasons.
Your WRAC Board of Directors
PROUD MEMBER OF WASHINGTON FITNESS ALLIANCE - WORKING TOGETHER FOR SAFE REOPENINGS OF WA CLUBS AND RECREATIONAL FACILITIES
7-28: WRAC Members!
I want to let you know that we are working together with other clubs, gyms, and other recreational facilities throughout the state in the newly formed Washington Fitness Alliance. The mission of the Alliance is to develop a strong, unified voice to represent our diversified fitness and recreational industry in communicating with the state Covid-19 Recovery Task Force as they set guidelines for our operations. Like ours, facilities are very challenged not only the multitude of conflicting guidelines we have been handed for the many activities offered in our facility, but even more recently by last Thursday’s announcement in the change to Phase 2 guidelines which are to become effective July 30. These new guidelines allow only 5 people in any such facility, regardless of the size of the building. For facilities in those counties already in Phase 2, this change will shut them down. Chelan county is still in a modified version of 1 so our plan of being able to offer more services indoors in Phase 2, got tabled by that announcement as well.
I am proud to join 8 other highly respected individuals from across the state on the WFA Board of Directors. We have all been working hard to put this together in only about a week and currently have about 140 partners who have signed up to be part of this voice. Please look for updates and information about this at Washington Fitness Alliance.com
as well as on the Washington Fitness Alliance Facebook page. We are truly working together as an industry to find common ground which we can support for reasonable, practical and safe ways to get our people back to work, members into our facilities and our businesses functioning again. I am also proud to say that many local facilities are represented in this and that our Chair is Blair McHaney of MXM and WORX who has been instrumental in getting our voice heard.
I will continue to share updates on our page to keep you in the loop. It is our objective to be able to get our club reopened, but only in a manner which provides for the safety of all our members and staff. We have worked very hard behind the scenes, doing many things in the indoor facility which you have not been able to even see yet. As we get closer to being back at the indoor facility, we will be showing these with videos and the posting of our WRAC Club Care Plan for your review.
In the meantime, please check for updates. We will continue to fortunate that we can take advantage of our beautiful outdoor facility and offer as much activity as we can safely. Remember that reservations for use of courts and pool are required and to always practice safe social distancing-fitnessing. If you have any questions, please contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your continuing support and trust that we will continue to work hard to do the right things. - Evy Gillin, Club Manager
