AGL are open but have pushed back their member shoot which was scheduled for tomorrow. No food and the lodge is shut, don't congregate to close around the ground etc..

Seems they're doing a pre-pay phone in service where you can request a number of clays, and carts if needed, and show your license on arrival to receive the Promatic card to use without going in the shop. If I wasn't considered at risk I'd probably go for the fresh air.

Barbury shooting ground has put exactly the same procedure into place. I hope to go next week.

East of England have also decided to shut the gate.

Yes that was where we were heading, looks like we will go to Sporting Targets and ring them at the half-way point to see if they are going to stay open.

Had a great session at Sporting Targets this morning, shot a lot of the new stands, quite a few people and even some families going round.

 

Good to be out in the fresh air doing something that we love.

Interesting!

I was aware that the Reg Comps that I was contemplating around Cambs, Beds and Northants were scrubbed, many grounds have closed totally and some are open for practice.

We will see if we can find any woodpigeons to shoot.

Bywell clays closed yesterday but shop still open for now. 

That's nonsensical,  you would be much safer out on the shoot than the confines of the shop.

No problem mate I realise that.

As a matter of interest, I drove out this morning the roads were busy and loads of people out and about. I drove past the local golf course and the car park was rammed. Looks like the golfers are continuing their sport as normal

I think it is time now that all the grounds should be closed.  I do get entirely that it is outdoors and not a big social gathering, but quite honestly these are not normal times and if we are doing things as normal then we are doing something wrong.

Every commercial shooting ground will benefit from having to pay no business rates for the next year, the government will guarantee 80% of the salaries of any employees and there are also further grants available, along with deferred VAT payments and further loans should that be required.
