COVID Restrictions – 17 December 2021

Our sport of target shooting may be offered to vaccinated and unvaccinated people. Many clubs will have a club house in some form. This often stores club documentation and equipment required to conduct the shoots and provides a meeting place for members to socially interact. The Sport & Rec advice is that club houses are not permitted for use by unvaccinated people when it relates to food and beverage. QRA believes a conservative approach is safest, therefore Club Houses (including covered areas) should only be used by vaccinated people.
