These are difficult times and whilst archery is probably not a priority at the moment, during committee discussions about mainly boring admin stuff. It was raised that whilst we are in lockdown or shielding and unable to shoot, it seems unfair to be asking for club fees especially when many are furloughed.
As such monthly fees are being made entirely Optional for all current members until we are able to shoot again. When that is will be dependent upon AGB reversing their statements to stop all archery, and there are absolutely no doubts over the validity of insurance provided by or through AGB.
This is a quick note to inform members there will be no shooting at Armadale, Linlithgow or Outdoors at Bathgate with immediate effect.
As you may imagine there have been various discussions with AGB last week and across today. I am now waiting on a promised response from Sarah Booth, the head of AGB communications, with regard announcements made on social media and email.
Updates will follow.
