WRAC UPDATE FOR FEBRUARY
Our doors are open! We’re happy to offer safe, limited fitness and recreational options for our members. We are fortunate to have a large facility that allows us to meet specific low-density safeguards created under new state reopening guidelines. Masks are required at all times, and advance sign-ups are necessary. But we’re open, and thankful to see healthy activity resuming inside our large walls!
We anticipate continued restrictions for the foreseeable future, but things are headed in the right direction. Safety is our number one mandate, and we take that very seriously. Through our association with the Washington Fitness Alliance, we have advocated for science-based reopening opportunities. Our very survival depends on it. Our WRAC team is working tirelessly to provide a safe, sanitary environment, and will not hesitate to request compliance with well-communicated guidelines.
The board has decided to return to the 75% dues structure we had during October and November when we operated under similar capacity restrictions. We believe this is fair, and appropriately charges for the value offered. We need to return to full dues as soon as possible, and we certainly could make the case for the financial necessity of doing that now. But we must balance that need with what we are able to offer, and 75% makes sense now. Thankfully, a significant number of members continue to pay full dues, and we’re grateful for that meaningful assistance. If necessary, you can communicate changes to your membership status by indicating here on the member response form. Otherwise, we will bill according to your last instructions.
This journey has been arduous for all. While we still face uncertain times ahead, we are optimistic about rebuilding our team, our membership, and our finances. 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. See you at the club!
