As our valued members know, Nevada’s Governor has mandated the closure of our facility as of Wednesday, March 18th, 2020 due to the Covid-19 virus.
While we had hoped this would not become necessary, we understand the Governor’s decision and the seriousness of the current situation. Closing non-essential businesses will be a blow to the state and country but will help protect us and our families and help ensure our region’s medical facilities do not get overwhelmed by the spread of the virus. As a small business, this will be a difficult time for us as well as all similarly affected businesses.
We know the Club is a home away from home for our members and we will miss our members during this temporary closure. We truly appreciate our members and everything they do to support the Club.
We are using the period we are closed to continue the renovation of the facility (including painting the pools) performing additional cleaning and sanitation, replacing carpeting in certain areas, refurbishing the wood floors and other projects so we are clean and in great shape when we are able to re-open. We do still have bills to pay including rent, utilities, insurance, property taxes, pool chemicals, and payroll for employees we need to retain to maintain the Club and be positioned for re-opening.
Given the situation, we ask that our members continue with their normal monthly dues for the month of April, drafted mid-March and for May to provide us some assistance in covering costs for the next 30-days or until we are allowed to reopen. If you are unable to bear the charges, we will understand and ask that you email Marlene ( Marlene@caughlinclub.com ) and she can reply or give you a call to discuss your situation and placing your memberships on a freeze status at $20.00 per month. We appreciate your help in retaining needed personnel to maintain the facility and return to normal operations as soon as we are able. Your continued support means a lot to us and we want to thank you for your help in getting through these challenging times. Please support your other local businesses to the extent you are able. We will get through this as a community and have faith in the American spirit.
We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you will all keep up your fitness activities from the safety of your own homes until we are able to see you again.
We will provide additional information as it becomes available. We look forward to having you back in the Club soon!
