With Thanks Benchrest UK Committee

COVID 19 PLEASE READ / POSTALS Following a on line meeting at which the Benchrest UK committee discussed the current situation with regards to Covid and shooting.We are all fully aware of the effect Covid is having on the country and the shooting community with range access being virtually zero, with this in mind we have decide to take what is probably the best long term approach with regards to our postal competitions. 1) That we honour the current  postal competition where people have been able to complete their cards, submitted their scores and where there are more than three competitors medals will be awarded. (when able to do so) 2) We will prepare as best we can to offer a full series of postal competitions to commence as quickly as possible after lockdown regulations are relaxed and ranges have full and uninhibited usage. Common sense prevailing. 3) When we are able and it is safe to do so we will hold shoulder to shoulder competitions at ranges that can accommodate safe usage. These competitions will be held with strict adherence to current regulations at that time “Our Members Safety Is Paramount” We apologies for not being more specific with timescales but rest assured we are determined to “Carry on Shooting” Your patience is greatly appreciated.

Dear Benchrest UK Member.This is just a reminder to say that your Benchrest UK membership for the 20/21 year is up for renewal and is due on the 1st November 2020. This year due to the Covid 19 situation it’s been hard for us to run any side by side shoots but we are still running our Postal competitions for those able to participate and gearing up for 2021 which will hopefully be a better year. We have discounted our membership for the coming year to take this into consideration. Membership from now until November 2021 will be £10 + an additional charge of £1 to cover PayPal costs this can be paid via PayPal in the website store LINK – https://www.benchrestuk.com/?page_id=735. Please leave your name and membership number in the notes section.There is no need to fill out the membership form again Confirmation of payment will be sent.With thanks Sonia Membership Secretary

COVID-19 To All Benchrest UK Shooters In the light of government advice on the reopening and use of some sporting facilities “Benchrest UK” is looking to resume albeit in a limited form benchrest shooting from the first week in June. However as we are a National Organisation and are totally reliant on your local club its committee and members you will be expected to abide by all rules and guidelines layed down by those individual clubs. We will continue taking guidance and advice from the government and will update members as and when circumstances change and we are hoping to hold competitions in the not too distant future.
