Amendments to Guidelines

The government has announced its new lockdown easing measures, effective from the 4th July.

The maximum number of people allowed in any gathering is 30. As we had already stipulated a 30 to 40 maximum attendance per session, this is now amended to 30 maximum.

As our plinking ranges are technically classed as indoor (more than 50% enclosed), we can not use them as they are, even with 2m bench spacing. Therefore we will have to move the benches forward, meaning they will no longer be classed as indoor, ie if it rains, you will get wet.

Before anyone complains please bear this in mind – the committee have sole responsibility for determining when and where our members can shoot. If we are complicit in allowing members to break the law, we are responsible for any legal action that may result as a consequence. In other words, you may not agree to the 70mph speed limit on the motorway, but that is the law, and there are consequences if you are caught.

We cannot put any committee member in the position where they may face consequences for giving permission for others to break the law.

This situation is frustrating. None of us want it. Unfortunately, we have to work with it until things return to normal. Your forbearance as members is needed to enable us all to get through this difficult time as smoothly as possible.

PARC Re-Opening On Tuesday 7th July

We are pleased to announce that PARC will re-open on Tuesday 7th July at 10:00.
Bookings for this session will commence on Tuesday 30th June at 09:00 06:30 BY EMAIL ONLY. The reasons for doing this are as follows:
Emails arrive in date and time order making it simple to compile a list of first come, first served bookings. Emails also have all the information needed to transfer electronically to a spreadsheet. Taking bookings by phone would mean having to write down all the details as they came in – a hugely time consuming process. Also, phone bookings would be very intrusive, and may go unanswered if the call is unable to be taken at that time.
As we have stated in the guidelines below, this is all new.
Over time the process will be refined. If you don’t have an email address, but own a smartphone, then getting an email address is free and simple.
Many clubs operate on an online booking system only. Those without internet access get a friend or family member to book on their behalf.

A Quick Note On Memberships…

A few members have been asking if we will be entitled to refunds given the current situation.
The committee is looking at giving a reduction on next year’s fee for those who have paid prior to the lockdown. Anyone requesting a refund must bear in mind that they will no longer be able to shoot at PARC once the club opens, and will be unable to rejoin for the foreseeable future, as we have closed all new memberships.
Last year’s members who have not paid their subs this year will be unable to rejoin this year.
Very regrettably, all those currently in the induction phase will be unable to complete their inductions and will have their deposits refunded.
