You will have recently had an email from the Chairman to say that, having had both confirmation from Archery GB and the news that as a country we are on target to achieve the next roadmap milestone, we can at last start shooting again!
The club will restart archery on Sunday 18th April. As with previous restarts, there will be a few rules and guidelines to be followed plus the online booking system must also be used. These will be very similar to previous rules and so on but full details of these will be sent out shortly.
Thank you all for your kind patience, support and understanding during these trying times – it is greatly appreciated.
In line with the new government guidelines coming into force on Thursday 5 November 2020, there will be no indoor archery taking place. This is obviously a great disappointment for us all but at the same time it is important in the fight against the virus.
We will of course keep you all updated with any changes as and when they occur but, we do not anticipate any more archery indoors until Sunday 6th December 2020 at the earliest.
As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact any member of the committee and we will do our best to help out. Keep safe and we all look forward to shooting again as soon as it’s permitted.
Following confirmation from Archery GB that indoor shooting can continue, the Club Committee has been working with Rickmansworth School to create a plan that should allow as many archers as possible to shoot, while ensuring a COVID-19 compliant shooting environment.
All club members should have received an email from the Chairman with the procedure for indoor shooting. There is a restricted number of spaces per session but this is compensated for by additional sessions. Our approach is intended to ensure that there is as much opportunity and fairness for everyone to have a great indoor season.
If you have any questions about the indoor shooting procedure please contact the committee.
On the 17th June the club took part in Archery GB’s Annual Big Weekend, opening its doors to the public so that they could come and try archery. The weather was excellent and around 50 people turned out to have a go. Thanks to all who came along and to all those club members who helped make it a great day.
