Due to the recent government announcement of the creation of tier 4, we once again, find ourselves in the situation of being forced to close. This message therefore, temporarily supercedes any previous notices shown below, regarding club attendance, until further notice. The club closure will cover the period up until early January, when the government have said they will review the situation. It is possible that the closure could extend past this period. If this is the case, then a further message will appear here. In any event, we will notify you when we are opening again. As before, if anyone is interested in becoming a member, then please see the notice below under ‘New Members’.
In the meantime stay safe everyone
We are sorry, that due to social distancing regulations, we are currently unable, to take any new members at the present time. However, if after seeing what we have to offer, you are interested in joining our club, please send a message via the contact page. When we are able to offer membership again (whenever that may be); we will contact you to invite you to attend an induction with our induction officer, where we informally just go through what we have to offer in a little more detail; show you the club facilities and equipment; have a safety talk; give information on membership procedure and give you the opportunity to ask any questions. Then if you are still interested in proceeding (and we hope you are) you can take away an application form to start the ball rolling.
To comply with social distancing regulations all coaching for probationary members, along with inductions are suspended until further notice.
FULL INSTRUCTIONS FOR BOOKING RANGE SPACE AND ATTENDANCE
After a lot of hard work by your Chairman and CRC committee and under instructions and guidance from our governing bodies; we are now in a position to re-open the club and range, albeit with quite a few restrictions.
GALLERY RIFLE & LSR SHOOTERS (INCLUDING AIR PISTOL AND RIFLE)
We propose to initially open on Tuesday and Friday evenings only with just two sessions available on each evening, commencing with Tuesday 25th August 2020. Each session can accomodate a maximum of 5 shooters, giving a total of 10 shooters for each evening.
The sessions will run from 7-8pm and 8-9pm only.
Initally, access is only available to full members, and to probationers who have been signed off to shoot with their carbine/calibre of choice.
TO BOOK YOUR PLACE TO SHOOT CARBINE OR AIR
Please phone Barry or Paul on 0208 656 2001 between the hours of 11am-2pm on the day prior to the required shooting day, ie. the Monday or the Thursday. You will be asked which session you want to book for and about firearms and ammunition.
Shooters will need to bring their own scopes as club equipment will not be available due to possible cross contamination.
Please remember to bring a face covering (mask) with you. Disposable masks are available for a small charge.
We are planning to run prone shooting on Thursday evenings only. As with the other nights there will be only two sessions available each evening.
These sessions will run from 7-8pm and 8-9pm only.
We hope to start the sessions on Thursday 24th September 2020.
Similarly to Gallery and LSR, places will be only available to full members and to probationers who have been signed off to shoot prone. Members will need to provide their own scope and mat as the sharing of club equipment will not be possible.
There will be 3 prone slots and 1 benchrest slot on each session.
TO BOOK YOUR PLACE TO SHOOT PRONE
Please ring Gail on 07796 171808 between 11am and 2pm on the day prior to shooting, ie. on the Wednesday for the Thursday. You will be asked which session you want to book and about firearms and ammunition.
Please remember to bring a face covering (mask) with you.
We hope that in time, as government restrictions are lifted and social distancing is relaxed; we can gradually increase attendance, as we return to as normal a life as possible.
The CRC committee would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for its understanding, in what, are unprecedented times.
