A reminder of snow and winter closing policies:

If the county issues no travel advised we will automatically close the facility. Radio ads notice the close lines and an email to members gets sent out. I will call each RSO on duty, but please be aware of the notice (I don’t want to miss anyone).

If a blizzard warning is issued and will not expire during our open hours we will close. The same manner of correspondence will occur.

We know snow amounts can change, so travel and snow totals in town, we have to play by ear. If you do not feel you can make it to the BCOAC, just let me or Arden know. I always want safety over anything! If we need to close while we are open we can make those calls on a case by case basis
