Shoot for Gold, June 2020

G’day folks

Due to the situation the world finds itself in with Covid-19 as you know shooting has been suspended until very recently. This has had a knock on effect with the draw; however with the field now open I have been able to hold the draw, albeit with very few members to act as witnesses.

Nevertheless I was able to hold the June draw a couple of days ago at the field in the presence of Mick Hayman and Colin McKenzie who were shooting on a hot afternoon. The considerable presence of Colin drew the balls.

GOLD (£25) …………………………………….. Trevor Smith (1)

RED (£15) …………………...…………………. Dan Webb (3)

BLUE (£10) …………………………….......….. Chris Stoneham (42)

Well done everyone for keeping in the draw at this time of disruption when we all want to be out shooting at the field, particularly in this glorious weather. It was looking fantastic and congratulations to all who keep it looking so good. I even saw the resident sparrow hawk, which lives in the trees along the road, just to cheer me up.

As ever

The Club Phase One Return to Shooting

Set up of the field is now complete and ready for a return to shooting.

Targets are in fixed non movable positions at the following distances:

1@ 90m, 70m, 50m.

1@ 60yds, 50yds, 50yds, 40yds, 30yds, 20yds.

We've managed to get an extra target across the field without compromising on safety

The booking system is now live for bookings from Sunday the 24th May at 9.00am and is available on the website. While it is easy to use, the committee would ask that until we see the level of attendance/use that when booking you only book one slot at a time - in other words you don't book another until you have finished at the field with your first time slot - put another way, don't block book!!

To book a target you must first login as a member and visit Members Area | Target Booking | Book a Target

Designated Field Captain

The field captain will be the person shooting on the longest distance for each time slot - the use of a whistle is preferable - if you don't have one then voice is good!

Follow the Guidance

The shooting rules and guidance notes were sent out last wednesday and should be followed for your own safety; a risk assessment has also been completed on the basis of these notes being followed. Should you have any comments on the set up please let us have them via a committee member, If constructive and well founded we'll do our best to accommodate them

A Big Thanks

I was at the field this morning with Jerry, Roger and Derek, I have to say it looks immaculate and a huge amount of work has gone into getting it that way - We need to recognise and thank Jerry, Clive, Brian and David for all the work that has gone into this preparation, so next time you see them it would be good to acknowledge  and thank them - that is without any unnecessary hugging etc!!

Best to All and enjoy the shooting!!
