23/2/21 – Following the governments announcement regarding the roadmap for England we will be running archery and axe throwing experiences from 29th March 2021 onwards. These sessions can cater for up to six people from up to two households!
Please remember it is really important that the number of people visiting us at any one time is kept to a minimum. Therefore, shooting opportunities will be limited and controlled to ensure the safety of everyone.
Below are our Covid-19 guidelines.
On arrival at the car park please leave 5 metres between cars to allow social distancing.
If you have your own equipment, please put your bow together at the rear of your car and leave your bow case etc in your car.
You MUST practice social distancing at all times and maintain a distance of at least 2 metres from anyone who is not in your household.
On arrival YOU MUST clean your hands with the sanitiser provided. This will be labelled and on a table.
Toilets are not to be used and will be locked. Please come prepared i.e. go beforehand.
There is also no first aid kit available; so please come equipped
Spectating is actively discouraged. However, attendance of a parent/guardian (non-participant) or a carer for a disabled archer is permitted. Parents/guardians/carers are limited to one per archer; with social distancing strictly observed while watching the sessions.
You MUST NOT come to archery sessions if you show symptoms of any illness, but in particular of Covid-19. These are highlighted on NHS Direct and include:
- A persistent and dry cough
- A temperature
If you are symptomatic, living in a household with a possible COVID-19 infection or if you are classified as extremely vulnerable on health grounds, the guidance is that you should remain at home.
You must notify us should you develop symptoms after attending the archery range.
Each target will be restricted to two archers or one group of archers if from the same household.
All the targets will be placed 4 metres apart which is the distance recommended by Archery GB.
Please shoot at a distance which you are confident at i.e. you can hit. Any arrows which miss the target must be found within one minute. This is so archers are not delayed since sessions will have to adhere to strict timings. Any arrows still missing can be found at the end of the day’s shooting and you will be told where to collect them.
After the session, you should sanitise your hands. All surfaces and Grey Goose equipment that has been touched will be disinfected after the archery session.
We will be providing one free target face for you to keep. We ask that you either re-use this on another session or dispose of at home after use. You may purchase and bring your own target faces to sessions or we will have some target faces for sale.
At the end of the session please remove the target face and place your target pins in the bucket of disinfectant provided.
We kindly ask that once the session is over that you leave quickly so as to allow other archers to start their session. We also ask that you do not congregate and socialise after your session is over.
On leaving the Quarry please close the gate behind you and remember to sanitise your hands as soon as possible. It is recommended that you bring your own personal sanitiser with you.
We hope to see you all very soon.
Team Grey Goose
