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.

PARC hoping to re-open on Tuesday 7th July

Providing there are no government announcements preventing us from doing so, we are pleased to announce that PARC is intending to re-open on Tuesday 7th July 2020.

Necessarily, our method of operation will change substantially.
With the need to help prevent further spikes in the spread of Covid-19, we have put a great deal of thought into reducing risk for our members. Apart from making the site as safe as reasonably practicable, we also have to consider the number of shooters on site at any given time. As this is a new situation for all of us, we hope you will understand that the decisions we make now can, and probably will, be subject to revision as new guidelines and our own experiences evolve.
Therefore, and in line with government and insurance requirements, we will be issuing a set of guidelines, which will be published HERE in due course.

If anyone has any questions, please contact us via the email links below:

The committee has had a ‘virtual’ meeting and agreed that the club will remain closed at least until the end of June. At that point, the committee will meet once more, and, taking into account the situation at that time with respect to government guidelines, will consider ways of opening the club safely, and in accordance with any safety rules imposed by the government and insurance requirements.

The committee hopes that all members will understand the reasons for our decisions, and ask that you bear with us in these unprecedented times.
Our fervent wish is to get the club back to as close to normal as restrictions allow, as soon as practically possible.


The committee has taken the decision to close the club today, 23rd March, for the foreseeable future. This has been decided in the best interests of our club members.
The combination has been changed and no member should try and gain access.
We will monitor the situation daily and update this page as necessary.
We are sure you will understand the necessity of this decision and thank you for your patience in these unprecedented times.

Emily Smith 2nd Place Junior in Daystate Midland Hunter Series

One of our younger members, EMILY SMITH (11), ably assisted by mum and dad Jennie and Stuart, has achieved a superb 2nd place in the Junior section of the Daystate Midland Hunter Series.

Despite only taking up shooting only a year ago, her enthusiasm, and mum and dad’s full support, have carried her through to this excellent result.

Well done Emily! All of us at PARC who know you are also proud of your achievement!

Proud Trophy Winner!
Spot the youngest!!

Corona Virus (Covid-19) & PARC – UPDATE

The club, (as of Monday 18th March), is currently still open and functioning as normal.

The committee has made the decision to stop all current inductions, and not accept new membership applications with immediate effect.
Those currently undergoing inductions will be able to claim a refund or restart their induction process sometime in the future (as yet we have no idea when that might be).
The club will remain open for existing members ONLY, and NO guests or visitors will be allowed. However please note that you come AT YOUR OWN RISK.
As you are probably aware, the Covid-19 pathogen can survive for several hours outside the body. This means that an infectious person could potentially leave the pathogen on shooting tables, chairs, cushions, etc. For this reason, the clubhouse will NOT be available at any time during this period.

We will continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis, particularly with regard to government recommendations and mandatory requirements.

If we have to make the decision to close the club completely, we will endeavor to give as much notice to as many people as possible. To that end, please keep an eye on this website and the FaceBook page ( You can find us on FaceBook at: ) for updated information. Those of you who do so, please, if necessary, contact all your shooting colleagues who may not have access to either the internet or FaceBook.

The committee would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time.

New Club Officers

The PARC Committee are pleased to announce the appointment of two new officers:

Rumours that you have to touch your forelock when passing them are greatly exaggerated…!
