Indoor Shooting is now available on Wednesday evenings...

Dear All,

We are pleased to let you know that indoor shooting at Archbishop’s will resume this Wednesday,

10th November, 6.15pm arrival to set up for a 7 pm start (in the gym which is upstairs in the main building). Access is via the main school entrance which is on the left as you drive into the large carpark at the top of the drive. However, because this is our first return during the pandemic and the small size of the gym, spaces will initially be limited to eight people per session, including the session key holder/leader, using four straw bosses. We will see how this arrangement goes and may adjust it at a later date depending on feedback from those attending.

We are still able to shoot indoors at Ursuline, Westgate on a Tuesday evening and are very grateful to Thanet Archers for continuing to offer this lovely facility to our archers. Please remember that Thanet have independent insurance and Canterbury members are no longer insured to shoot there under Archery GB insurance. Thanet Archers advise that their insurance provides indemnity for any ‘Guest Archers’ but it is your responsibility to satisfy yourself that sufficient insurance cover exists. Canterbury Archers will not provide any indemnity, advice or opinions on this.

Unfortunately at this time, Club equipment is not accessible for our indoor sessions so only those with their own equipment are able to attend.

Every archer must use the online booking calendar to book only for themselves (not a target on

behalf of themselves and others as was allowed for outdoor) and be willing to share a target with one other. Please remember to cancel your booking if you are not able to attend.

Hand sanitiser is provided in dispensers throughout the school and in bottles on the shooting line (or you may prefer to bring your own) and it is recommended that you wear a mask or face shield when not on the shooting line and gloves when moving the stands and bosses. Please remember to observe distancing and be respectful of other people’s space.

If you feel unwell at all, or have recently had contact with someone with Covid, please do not attend.

Kind regards,

The Committee
