Caldy Bowmen will be holding a Charity Frostbite Shoot on Saturday 1st January 2022.
This will be a great way to blow away the cobwebs from the New Year's Eve celebrations, while also raising money for charity.
The nominated charity this year is the Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital Charity.
Northern Counties Indoor Championships
Congratulations to Sam Hamlett for achieving 2nd Lady Compound at the NCAS Indoor Championships. This is a fantastic result
for Sam and very well deserved.
End of COVID restrictions
The end of formal restrictions on social gatherings, brought in to tackle the spread of COVID-19, is finally with us.
This is welcome news for archery clubs across the country and allows the Club to return to something resembling normality.
The relaxing of restrictions allows more bosses to be set out on the range and up to four archers per boss is now allowed.
The Club can return to having a single shooting session and longer rounds can be shot as we are no longer constrained to a
2 hours window.
Lockdown ends for organised sport
The third English national lockdown is coming to an end and organised outdoor sports can resume from Monday 29th March 2021.
This is a long awaited and some may say, overdue occasion, but the timing for the club is good as it coincides with when the club traditionally
switches from Winter indoor shooting to Summer outdoor shooting.
For club members, this means that the first club shoot will be on Sunday 4th April 2021. Things are not fully back to normal though and the Club will
need to implement measures to ensure we remain Covid compliant in our operations. The ticket booking system will return (members should login to the
website to access the link to the booking page) and everyone attending the shoot will need to pre-book their tickets online.
Members are reminded to read all of the information contained on the ticket booking page, including the risk assessment and Archery GB advice to archers
document, as these contain important information on resuming archery in a Covid secure environment.
Shooting Suspended - National Lockdown Begins
A new UK wide national lockdown begins today to try and slow down the spread of the new
variant of Covid-19. This means that all archery ranges must close, affecting both indoor and outdoor ranges.
While this news will be disappointing to our members, it is not entirely unexpected. There are daily news reports of rapidly increasing infection rates
and with hospital admissions reaching capacity in parts of the country, the goverment needed to act to prevent this occuring across the UK.
As soon as restrictions are lifted, the club committee will endeavour to resume club shoots within the guidelines applicable at the time.
New Year's Day Frostbite Shoot
The New Year's Day Frostbite shoot took place at Kingsmead School this year. This consists of shooting 36 arrows, at an 80cm target face, over a distance
30m on the outdoor range.
