Dear All

Now we are fully in the grip of the CORVID-19 virus we are sailing in uncharted waters.

As a club we are primarily concerned with your safety and as such have suspended all normal activity. No member is expected to attend the club. All duty officer duties are cancelled until further notice. No intake of new members who need one to one assistance. No visitors or guest nights….. all the above until further notice.

Members who wish to shoot can make arrangements between themselves to visit the range but must observe the strict hygiene rules and keep a safe respectful distance between each other. Hand washing in the toilets only please and wipe down any handles and equipment that you touch.

I would be grateful if any member who contracts the virus notifies our secretary Lindsay so that we can monitor the situation.

On a brighter note those of you who have visited the range this week will see that there is a great deal of activity on the build. The ground is still soft and that means a bit more work is needed to make a supportive driveway to the site. So there are piles of stone taking up part of the car park. So please take extra care when on the club site.

Hopefully the footings will be cast soon and then we can get the frame up. Once that is up the cladding and internal walls can be built. And the floor slab will be laid.

Congratulations to our Prone A&B teams who have won the Devon Winter League’s first and second division respectfully …… F team came a creditable second too.

My thanks to all organisers and captains who keep us in line over the winter season.

Congratulations to Lindsay Agates who won the South West open meeting at Okehampton held last week. She dropped only 10 points out of 800 a splendid effort. Pinhoe also won the team of four. And to crown it all Johnathan Coutney-Baker who entered his first ever competition won the junior title with a fantastic score of 700. What a great start to his shooting career.

If there is anything else you think we can do for the benefit of the Club and it’s members please do not hesitate to let me or Lindsay know.

In the meantime, stay safe.

Best regards

Mike
