Accommodation is available at a number of local hotels, but the Premier inn (closest) and Silverdale Lodge (10 minute drive) are used by a number of our competitors that don’t camp on site.

Covid-19 Planning

• We will assume that there will be a limit in place on the number of competitor able to attend outdoor sporting events at the time of this event (as it is a lot simpler to allow more competitors to attend, than to turn them away after entering) and therefore we will only be initially accepting and squadding the first 25 entrants that we receive. This will be reviewed as range space is allocated to these entrants and also as we learn more about current government restrictions
• Certificates will be issued in the place of medals this year due to the increased costs and likely reduced numbers of competitors at this year’s competition. Certificates will be posted to winner’s home addresses, so please ensure they are correct on your entry forms.
• Hand sanitation gel will be provided at each range, range office, toilet and kitchen facility.
• Regular cleaning of surfaces will take place and doors will be propped open to reduce touch points.
• All competitors are encouraged to ensure familiarisation with current government guidance before and during this event. Anyone who is clinically vulnerable should ensure they check on government guidance at the time of this competition and only attend if advisable to do so.
• To ensure social distancing measures are maintained at the range, every other firing point will be blocked.
• The range ‘office’ will likely be setup outside in an open sided shelter.
• Competitors will be asked to stay on the firing point side of all target boards whilst RO’s score the targets.
• Competitors will be called in at the start of each detail and are encouraged to leave promptly
• One-way systems will be implemented where possible and signs marking entry and no-entry points will be erected.
• There will be no prize giving ceremony at the end of this year’s competition allowing anyone who has finished shooting to promptly leave the range facility
• No spectating will be allowed on the ranges
• Raffle winners will be drawn post competition and winners notified by post/email.
• The home countries match will be scored using your individual entries
• Squadding will be issued around 10 days before the competition to allow more flexibility as restrictions are confirmed nearer the time
• Updated Covid Guidance will be issued in late July
