Updates

The Ulster Clay Pigeon Shooting Association welcome the announcement from the Northern Ireland Executive that Coronavirus restrictions can now begin to ease. Although this easing will allow our grounds and members to once again participate in the sport they love, we must continue to be vigilant in the fight against Coronavirus. This will mean that clay shooting will not return to what we knew as normal for some time. Until this can happen we recommend the following points for all those taking part to ensure the safety of both shooter and club:

  1. Clubs should carry out a Covid-19 risk assessment before commencing any activities at the shooting ground.
  2. Clubs should ensure handwashing facilities are available and that hand sanitising facilities are available at each layout or stand for sporting disciplines.
  3. Club houses should remain closed with only ground staff allowed to enter.
  4. Clubs should provide appropriate PPE for staff and those working on site.
  5. Where possible range time should be prearranged/booked ahead of time to mimimise numbers on the ground.
  6. Only those actively taking part should be on the ground - those who wish to spectate or socialise should not attend.
  7. Contactless payments would be preferred to avoid cash handling, however if this is not possible we recommend that the correct money is provided to the club and then handled appropriately.
  8. Everyone must adhere to the social distancing policy as directed by the Northern Ireland Executive - 2m social distancing and groups of no more that 4-6 people from separate households.
  9. Shooting facilities should open for practice only - competitions are not recommended at this time.
  10. Shooters should avoid touching club equipment eg buttons, scorecards etc if this is not possible all items must be cleaned with sanitiser after use.
  11. You should not touch any other person's shooting equipment unless you are from the same household.
  12. Clubs should actively promote social distancing through signs and notices. Where social distancing is not being followed or behaviour is deemed unsafe the club should ask offending shooters to leave the facility

Remember:

  • if you are feeling unwell you should not attend a shooting ground
  • if anyone in your household is unwell with Coronavirus or suspected Coronavirus you should not attend a shooting ground.

These are challenging times for our sport and we hope that we will be able to return to competitive shooting as soon as possible. However, until this is possible we ask that all our members act responsibly and keep safe.

Remember the regulations in place for Covid-19 by the Northern Ireland Executive are legally binding. Do not contravene these regulations in any way not only would you put yours or someone else’s health at risk but also your FAC!
