I am sure you have all been wondering when you can start shooting again. Well the time is nearly here. There has been a lot of work done to get the Club ready and ensure that the COVID requirements for social distancing and hygiene are met. We are just about to do a couple of test runs to make sure that we have identified and remedied any risks to members health. A full Risk Assessment has been undertaken and is on the Club website if you wish to look at it.
Shooting will be very different from before and I am attaching the Regulations and Procedures that will have to be followed to ensure a safe operation. It will be necessary to pre-book your shooting shift with me and a booking form is also attached which shows the shifts and timings available, you cannot now just turn up. Both of these documents will be on the Club website.
Please look at both the attachments and come back to me if there is anything you are not sure of. My e-mail address and telephone number are on the booking form.
To those of you who are RCO’s it would be helpful if you could let me know if you are able to cover a shooting session. The RCO will not be able to shoot during a session as he will remain on the firing point throughout. The Club Official who will ensure the Club Room is safely managed will also not be able to shoot for that session but does not have to be an RCO.
We are planning to open on Monday 24th August provided our dummy runs go ok. I will contact you again if there is any change to this. Please note that if Government guidance changes we will have to take it into account so might have to stop shooting at short notice.
