SHACK STATUS
To ensure the safety of our members, we the full BRARA Board have decided to postpone our opening plans until the pandemic stabilizes in the state of Florida. We all feel very strongly that our club must not in any way, however small, add to the risk of spreading the virus. We will revisit and resume our plans as soon as we are confident that it is safe to do so.
