Covid19 updates

Covid19 Update 15 May

Dear Members,
As of receipt of this email WAC’s field is once again open for shooting!
We do have to ask you to abide by a few extra rules in order to limit social contact and to follow Archery GB’s recommended guidelines for return to Archery. The WAC guide to shooting during this period can be found here, please ensure you read it carefully and understand what we are asking you to do.

Numbers at the field are restricted, so you will need to book a target each time you intend to shoot. The link for booking follows and is also in the attachment.

The ongoing complication is that Travellers are in the area and the RHS have blocked all vehicle access to car park 4 & 5 from Wisley Lane. We therefore need to be mindful of Deers Farm Close residents when parking, and this is the main reason for starting with a restriction of 5 targets at a time. Please park against the Research Centre fence and walk to the field via our normal access route (the gate combination is also back to the pre lock down code). Please also make sure you display a club sticker in your car or put a note on the dashboard.
Stay Safe and Good Shooting!
Your Committee

Covid19 Update 11th May

Please see the latest update from AGB regarding returning to archery here, the committee are doing our best to keep up to date with the guidance as it is released. At this stage in line with AGB guidance advising that all archery in the UK is postponed and our range remains closed.
Thanks for bearing with us while we understand ongoing guidance.

Covid19 Update 25th Mar 

After the Prime Ministers announcement and after discussion. We have made the decision that, whilst archery appears to be a suitable sole pursuit, providing the use of facilities by multiple people is inappropriate.

For this reason the range is currently closed to shooting.

We have not taken this decision lightly and with a heavy heart. We will keep this under review over the coming weeks. Stay safe all.
