Club House - Reopening

The Club House and Range will officially open on October 16, 2021.
Please note strict COVID Safety Rules will apply for all members.

Covid Safe Rules

With the relaxation of COVID 19 restrictions, we will be reopening the club on October 16, 2021. This will be in conjunction with the rules put in place by the Federal and State Government. We have remained closed for a few extra weeks to ensure that the most dangerous wave of the virus has been controlled. With the opening of the club, we will require all members to follow the guidelines outlined below. 

Just remember the main rules when at the club & shooting:

  • Only one (1) Archer per target and Maintain your distance (1.5m).

  • Don’t touch anyone else’s stuff.

  • Wash your hands & spray whatever you touch.

  • Take your target face home for further use.

  • Be considerate of every other member & do not risk their health, no matter what you think about the current situation.

  • IF YOU SUSPECT YOURSELF OF BEING COMPROMISED BY THE VIRUS IN ANY WAY, STAY HOME!!!!!

Each and every member is responsible for their own conduct at the range. Socializing is fine but please maintain your social distancing.

We will not be running any Competitions, Classes, or Come & Try’s for quite a while, but we are looking at ways to continue with the club league (You’ll be notified when we get it sorted).

As a general guide (but not a rule) we suggest that Tuesday & Thursday become Older Members Days. This allows members of the higher risk category (Over 50) to attend the range with a lower chance of Infection. Of course, Over 50’s can attend any day of the week but if you are worried about contracting the virus, these are the days to attend.

Let’s hope that things can go back to normal as soon as possible but until then we’ll plod along as best, we can. See you all at the range and Please respect each other’s safety.
