Paul Horvick’s classes are limited to 8 each session and we typically sell out. This class will be offered in the Conference Room with plenty of room for social distancing. Further, Paul has always practiced sanitizing the tools used and shared by attendees between each use and will continue to do so. He personally cannot wear a mask but is fine with students wearing masks. Even though we will be running a concurrent art class (same day and time), classes will be at opposite ends of the hall. Art will meet in Camino 3 and/or 4 and enter the building through the end hall door. Handguns will meet in the Conference Room and enter through the main entrance.
