The EFAA is committed to getting our archers back to Field Archery as soon as possible, but within the current guidance to ensure the safety of all its members.
You will find our latest COVID 19 documents and advice here.
The plea from the Committee is if you have any symptoms of COVID19, please stay home and do not venture out.
For the latest Government advice please see https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
Following the success of the trial run at Black Eagle we have now issued guidance to club secretaries about how to run classifications safely. The Committee must stress that restarting classifications is purely at the discretion of the clubs and the landowners, it is by no means compulsory.
Yesterday the Government announced that groups of more than six people may not meet socially either inside or outside from Monday 14th September. The Black Eagle trial Classification will go ahead as planned this weekend, barring any further immediate regulations, but we will have to review the guidance following this latest legislation.
Further guidance will be issued to club secretaries after Monday 14th September.
Our aim as always is to get people back to shooting as soon but as safely as possible.
Update for 19.8.2020
The EFAA Committee have completed the COVID 19 risk assessment and action plan to get us back to shooting properly.
We have submitted these document to the DCMS (Digital, Culture, Media and Sport - Government department), for agreement to allow us to shoot as normally as possible.
If we get approval from the Government we will be trialling our ‘new normal’ at Black Eagle Bowmen at their shoot in September and evaluate if we need to make any changes. Once this is complete the documents will be sent to all club secretaries, for them to use at their clubs.
