Shooting with Covid-19
UPDATED August 4
BOOKING NOT REQUIRED FOR THE SPORTING LAYOUT AS OF MAY 17TH 2021.
SKEET LAYOUT IS STILL PRE-BOOKING ONLY.
Please download & use the NHS Covid 19 App & check in to the Essex S.G. on arrival if you can.
If you feel unwell, have been told to shield yourself, or you are supposed to be isolating, do not come.
If you are one of the small minority who thinks social distancing isn’t necessary with strangers ( and thinks 2m is closer to 20cm), please do not come to any of our shoots.
Travel independently unless with an immediate family member (same household). When you arrive park 2m away from the nearest vehicle. If the car park has no obvious parking place available, use the big grass field on the right as you drive in, again 2m away from anyone else. You are welcome to use the big grass field anyway if you prefer.
When you book in on the day please ask for a hand sanitiser dispenser to borrow, to take with you around the course if you don't have your own. We also have disposable gloves you can use for button pushing, please ask for them on the day if required.
Bring PPE with you if you wish, gloves, wipes etc. as you’ll require.
Pay by card or bring exact cash for the round if possible. Clays are 29p each at the Essex S.G. , cartridges from £6 per 25. Contact less payment limit has been increased to £45.
Hot / cold drinks & snacks available for consumption outside only.
Bring the minimal amount of kit to carry.
There will be NO pens, or scoreboards available to borrow, we can provide scorecards though, or use an app on your phone.
The skeet range will be available only to book by the hour, max group of 6 minimum charge of 100 clays per hour, 50 each if there are 2 shooters. Booking for skeet by email ONLY please.
Do not enter the skeet range unless you’ve booked it. Do not queue at the skeet range either please.
The clubhouse will remain closed to public access for the foreseeable future.
Bring your SGC with you every time please.
We will not require membership cards at the moment, but we will record a name & contact number for the lead member of each group when you book in for contact tracing.
You will be expected to check this page, read and understand any new procedures/restrictions before you visit, each and every time until further notice.
We will change what we can to make every shoot run as smoothly as possible. This is a work in progress and any useful suggestions are always welcome.
WE NO LONGER RUN ANY SUNDAY SHOOTS. THREE ACRES S.G. IS OPEN ON ALTERNATE SUNDAYS PLEASE CALL DAVE BASS TO BOOK 07379 104128, fixtures via link below. COPFURN S.G. IS NOW COMPLETLY CLOSED.

Please don't send Olly text messages as glasses are required to read them nowadays! He can’t tally up text messages with the online diary like he can emails, he’s a much better shooter than he is a texter…
