Outdoor Feedback 20th April 2021
It has been surprisingly easy to feel safe at the club. In terms of shooting outdoors, ‘staying in your own lane’ has taken on a more literal meaning, but it’s nice to have a boss to yourself. During set up, the size of the bosses and stands facilitates distancing all by itself, and there’s always sufficient gloves or hand sanitiser in the container. Everyone I’ve shot with seems to have made the adjustment now, so when we do break for a chat or a (Bring Your Own) tea/coffee, standing a good (2 metres) distance apart just seems to happen naturally. Personally, apart from having to speak up a bit to be heard, it’s been an easy transition.
Feedback from archers shooting indoors from 21st September 2020
- “The setup works really well, no need to visit the school, safe access to the range and can be used by lone archers. Chuffed to be back indoors”.
- “So happy to have access to the indoor range again, just in time now the bad weather is upon us. Everything has been well thought out relating to Covid-19, with a dividing screen, face masks, hand sanitiser and even target boss sanitiser. It feels really safe to shoot indoors, don’t be shy, book your slot and start enjoying archery again in a nice, warm safe environment”.
- It’s been great to get back to indoor shooting now the weather is getting worse. The restrictions are okay once you get used to them and should not stop anybody enjoying shooting. It’s as safe as it can be with things as they are at present, I feel perfectly safe. Got to say Paul Egan does look better with a mask on….I’ll be sorry for that….:-)
