ArcheryGB recently issued guidelines for returning to outdoor shooting that comply with the current government advice. It involves wider spacing of targets, designated people to put up and take down targets, a Field Captain who doesn’t shoot who will take the register and enforce the social distancing, a booking system on this website, several new lengths of rope marked out with the required distancing and more besides.
We had a trial run yesterday (Tuesday 9th) which was successful, apart from the fact we are all now a long way from being archery-fit and the new bosses are really hard!
The guidelines have been sent to all club members by email. If you are a member and haven’t seen the email then let me or Fi know and we can go through it. Booking in advance is essential.
Sorry, but we can’t accommodate visitors from other clubs at the moment, nor can we run beginners’ courses. We will, of course, be keeping an eye on the guidelines as they change over time and will adapt what we do accordingly. We look forward to welcoming some new archers as soon as we are able to.
For now, though, it is great to be back out shooting!
