Covid Update.  - local lockdowns
Just a quick note to ask you to remind your members that they should not travel into or out of an area that is in lockdown in order to shoot. Please remember that as well as this being a serious health matter for all of us, under current regulations if anything were to happen while shooting, then as Welsh Government and ArcheryGB rules were not followed their
insurance may be declared void.
If we all follow the rules, we will be able to return to normal shooting sooner.
Stay safe.
Regards
Darran Cooke
Chair, Welsh Archery Association

All clubs that wish to allow their members to shoot MUST ensure they can comply FULLY with ALL the ArcheryGB guidelines. (READ ALL THE DOCUMENTS ).  

You must also confirm with your venue provider they are happy for you to return. Local authorities or schools may have rules preventing an immediate return for groups hiring their facilities (e.g. the use of toilets).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If any members experience symptoms highlighted by the Chief Medical Officer, which includes a new persistent cough or a high temperature or loss of taste or smell, self isolate for 10 days. The same applies if you have come in contact with anyone displaying these symptoms (isolate for 14 days).  Check up on your club members if you haven't seen them for a while, especially those in vulnerable age groups.

If you want to be part of the team this year, just look out for the details on the County team page when they are released.

Important information from the treasurer:


*not applicable for 2020/2021

When sending affiliation cheques to the Glamorgan Treasurer Please ensure you do NOT use initials for 'Glamorgan Archery Association' & 'Welsh Archery Association' , write them out in full. 

Banks are returning any cheques with 'GAA' or 'WAA' on them. This delays your affiliation and creates extra work for the Treasurer !!. 

Thanks
