As you will no doubt be aware, Ireland is currently operating under Phase 5 of the Government’s roadmap regarding Covid-19 restrictions across the country. This affects Wicklow as indeed every other county at present and with it, it affects Wicklow Archers and our ability to hold any beginner courses, Sunday training sessions at Dargle Valley and any internal club competition shoots we had planned to hold there – not only over the last few weeks, but also in the month of November.
Currently, Phase 5 restrictions are set to last until 1st December – these may be revised over the coming weeks, but at present we have ceased all club training, internal club competitions or any beginner courses until further notice, in line with current restrictions. We will review the situation as soon as new guidelines are released through the appropriate channels and will update you all again accordingly, regarding recommencing courses, training and any competitions, in due course.
Until then, we hope you and yours are safe and healthy. Needless to say we are all missing getting out on the field course and target range at our beloved Dargle Valley outdoor venue and hopefully we will be able to do so again sooner than later.
