Temporary Shutdown

We have had a very enjoyable summer of shooting since re-opening with excellent numbers early on and the vast majority following the rules and social distancing.

The last couple of shoots has seen things deteriorate somewhat with a number of people no longer following the Covid-19 rules including people shaking hands and bunching together, people turning up to shoot without booking, booking late or making late booking changes.

Also the numbers attending have dropped considerably with many saying they are bored with shooting Compak Sporting and/or do not like being watched shooting. Whilst this makes things a little easier for the finish time it makes running the shoot not hugely worthwhile as regards club finances and more particularly for the time and effort Glen and Colin put in.

We do not feel that reverting to the normal layout can be done in a Covid-19 safe way such that it meets CPSA recommended operating procedures and will not be able to open the clubhouse. With the virus on the rise again and with worse weather to come we have decided that the best thing to do for now is to close down until the New Year and review things then.

We will keep you up to date by email and on the FaceBook page etc. as to when we will get going again.

Many thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing you all before too much longer.

Keep safe and best wishes.

BVGC Committee.
