MARCH 2021 MEMBER UPDATE
Springtime normally brings a sense of optimism, but with Spring 2021 around the corner, our hopefulness is off the charts! Last month we moved from Phase 1 to Phase 2 under Washington State’s “Roadmap to Recovery”, and given continually improving health metrics, we believe greater reopening opportunities are coming soon. The standards for further easing restrictions have not been established by the state, but we believe our diligence in adhering to safe operating practices will soon allow greater facility access for our member-owners.
During the entire COVID-19 period, your WRAC has put safety first. We never cut corners, nor loosely interpreted any health and safety guidelines, though we were aware some of our competitors did. We advocated for science-based reopening standards through our participation in the Washington Fitness Alliance, where Club Manager Evy Gillin is on the board of directors. We spent significant money to try to keep the WRAC safe, some in obvious ways such as plentiful sanitizers and towels; some in less visible ways such as our large investment in ventilation scrubbers for our HVAC systems. Please see the COVID CARE PAGE for more detail about those efforts.
For March, we will continue billing at 75% of normal dues, with the hope that very soon we will offer full access and be able to charge full dues. We are so thankful to those member-owners who offer to pay full dues, and for those who continued to pay even when we were closed. Please let us know about any changes to your membership billing status with completion of the MARCH MEMBER RESPONSE FORM.
Our challenge in the coming year will be to rebuild what COVID-19 took from us, guided by the vision of being the very best fitness and recreational facility in our market:
1. We will rebuild our team!
2. We will rebuild our membership!
3. We will rebuild our financial reserves!
This is your club, a member-owned non-profit that exists to promote healthy lifestyles by offering recreational and fitness opportunities. We value and encourage your feedback. Act like you own the place, because you do! See you at the WRAC!
