Range to re-open 29th March 2021
|Good evening Archers,I’m sure many of you have been chomping at the bit to get out shooting again after a lengthy lay off. Please be aware the committee have been working hard behind the scenes and discussing things regularly to get the club open at the earliest opportunity. The delay has been Archery GB giving us the final nod as to recommencing shooting – which I can now finally say has arrived. Thank you all for being patient with us|
As of the 29th March outdoor shooting can restart under the same strict conditions as before. The booking system will be turned back on and archers will be able to book one of the 4 available slots. Please do not arrive before your start time and please do not delay your departure past your allotted slot to avoid people congregating. Please also do not bring family members or guests to the club whilst you are shooting (unless they are members and shooting in one of the pre-booked slots.
In other news, the club are delighted to announce that Beth Rhodes has been accepted to the youth National training squad and may be travelling out with the team to Romania later this year. We all obviously are thrilled and wish her every success. She will be receiving some of her coaching at the club under the guidance of our very experienced coaches. She will be required to shoot at 50 meters (not a pre-determined distance under our current setup) and so her coaches will be moving the boss back to allow her to shoot her distance correctly. The club has granted a special dispensation to allow this given her circumstances, and we wish to remind members that the bosses under normal circumstances are not to be moved.
The committee will be looking to support Beth in her exciting venture and will be looking forward to seeing how she gets along. We understand there may be members who also wish to help and support her and therefore we will be looking to set up a GoFundMe page to help with the financial side of things given everything (including travel and accommodation) is to be self funded and welcome anybody who wishes to contribute is welcome to do so.
So other than Wishing Beth all the best of luck the only other thing to say is happy shooting everyone.
