Foĺlowing the recent añouncement from Boris regarding the easing of lockdowns what do people think the chances of this year's going ahead.or would it have been better to maybe set it for August or September instead.

I really hope it goes ahead! I missed it last year. The timing I believe is critical for participation. It marks the start of the competitive clay season to a lot of shooters and I think putting it later in the year would clash with a fair few of the major events and cause a drop in entries. Just my thoughts.

No chance, its 12 weeks or so away, just enough time for the lockdown to be lifted and everybody to go crazy and further restrictions to be imposed.A postponement to later in the year seems a decent shout

My own take is that this curŕent lockdown will run until towards the end of march then we will return to a tier system of sorts.as people come from all over the country I cant see it happening also a lot of people from Europe and with travel restrictions I cant see them coming.as for clashing with other comps well if Essex got in first then the others would have to fit in with it.also as the Essex runs for a full week it gives ample chance for the top shooters to do the other comps anyway the same week.

I am booked in to shoot it on 14th April, to be honest I doubt that restrictions will be sufficiently relaxed by then to enable it to go ahead.

A good few people will have had the jab by then, but only the first dose, I would expect the advice at that time for all will be to continue to abide by all of the current guidance.?

I hope I'm proved wrong.

Be some up and down scores with all this lockdown. 

Rusty shooters as well as rusty guns.

I don't think it will go ahead, lot of setting up in advance for it to be cancelled last minute

As Will said, gives us a chance to catch up.

But I can’t see it happening this year.

They cancelled at last minute last year, I fear they will do the same this year.

Maybe next year because as others have said, moving it will clash with others 😕

:shaun:

Essex Gun Masters Update
We hope that you are all getting through these difficult times.
All our efforts are still focused on holding the “Masters” from Saturday 10th April to Sunday 18th April.
However, if the Govt. guidelines and lockdowns are not lifted in time, we will be postponing the event until 21st August 2021 to 29th August 2021.
All competitors will be contacted by John Dyson at the beginning of March when a decision will have to be made.
Hopefully all competitors will be able to carry their entries forward to the new dates.
The safety of all our staff and competitors is of paramount importance to us. We hope to see you all in April or if not, in August.
Keep safe from all at Essex Gun and Hepworth Hall Shooting Ground.
