Current Club Access

By now everyone is well-aware of COVID-19 and how local and State restrictions have changed the operations for many businesses.  As of this writing, the overall situation seems to be improving, but the State and Solano County continue to have some restrictions regarding your activities and ours.  Nevertheless, we are lucky that hunting occurs in our spacious, outdoor fields and that outdoor activities have few restrictions beyond not mixing with others outside your family/group and maintain proper physical distancing.

As we move into spring and summer, we continue to monitor the situation as it relates to our business and will continue to take a cautious approach, driven by both regulatory and operational considerations.

We require that a face covering be used while at the Club and particularly in the Clubhouse, unless you are sitting at a table, actively eating or drinking.  We respect everyone’s feelings on this issue, both pro and con.  Nevertheless, if you want to enter the Clubhouse, you need to wear a face covering.

Hunting:  During the off-season, we will be open for the same days and hours as we have been in past years – essentially 8:00am to 4:00pm, every day of the week except Tuesdays.  We are also closed during the entire month of June.

Bird Cleaning:  During the off-season, our bird cleaning room is closed, except for special events.

Clubhouse:  The Clubhouse continues to remain open during the business hours of 8:00am to 4:00pm, every week day, except Tuesdays, and will closed every week day after the hours of 4:00pm to 8:00am, and again on Tuesdays.  For the safety of all concerned,  we will be restricting the number of people allowed in the Clubhouse at any given time.  If not actively doing something in the Clubhouse, kindly wait outside.

Front Counter:  We have three designated “lanes” at the front counter, one for general transactions, one for the sale of ammunition, and one for picking up birds from the cleaning room.  We ask that you approach each of these “lanes” one at a time, and not crowd the front counter.  Please observe social distancing, while awaiting to approach the front counter.

Coffee Shop:  The Coffee Shop is closed during the off-season, except for special events.  If you would like to arrange for the Coffee Shop to be open, please contact the Club Office for details.  We have outside seating only in our picnic area or on our covered front porch.  We look forward to returning to dine-in service, as soon as the situation allows.  For now, the Coffee Shop continues to operate with a limited menu, Wednesday to Sunday, 10:00am to 2:00pm. 

Just as with the Front Counter, if it is open, please approach the Coffee Shop Counter one at a time to place your order.

We also offer vending machines that dispense soda and snack items, and as always, you are welcome to bring your own food to the Club.

Fishing:  We are a hunting club that also has fishing access.  We are not a fishing club.  Fishing from our banks, or in the surrounding sloughs via our boat ramp, remains available during regular business hours only.  You may not fish “overnight” from 4:00pm to 8:00am.  If you are fishing, you need to sign-in and sign-out in our “fishing book”, as well as using the regular sign-in and sign-out sheet.

Boat Ramp:  This Season the Boat Ramp will only be available for use during the Club’s normal business hours – 8:00am to 4:00pm, every day of the week except Tuesdays.

Trailer Park:  The Trailer Park remains open for those renting a trailer space, but Trailer Park “residents” are limited to accessing the other Club facilities, just as any other member would be.

Overnight Camping in our parking lot and Dry Storage Area:  Per State and County regulations, we are not currently able to accommodate overnight camping at Hastings Island.  We need to be able to control access to the Clubhouse, its restrooms, etc., to ensure that they are regularly sanitized.  Unfortunately, overnight camping is not compatible with achieving that goal.  If you want to spend the night in the area, there are a number of hotels and motels nearby that can meet your needs for overnight accommodations.

General:  Everyone (employees and members) is expected to practice physical / social distancing (a minimum of 6′ between all persons) while at the Club and to use PPE (ie. masks, etc) as appropriate and as required by law.

We are attempting to maintain an environment that maximizes safety for our members and employees, and provides you with a consistent level of service.  While we understand that you may have different ideas about how we should be operating our business, we have given lots of thought to the foregoing and created a plan that takes into consideration numerous factors.

We appreciate your patience and understanding, as all of us navigate this unusual and sometimes challenging period, and we look forward to returning to full and normal operations in the future.
