CPSA Advice as of 14th May
The following email was sent to all CPSA clubs, grounds, and trade members on 14 May 2020, stating that the CPSA has now had the necessary assurances to recommend the re-opening of clay-shooting grounds, which will be of interest to all clay-shooters in England:
Dear Clubs, Grounds, and Trade Members,
Regarding the CPSA’s position on the opening of clay shooting grounds following the easing of restrictions from the 13th May for outdoor sports activities:
Over the past 48 hours we have been working with the Government, Police and other bodies to get the confirmation we needed under the latest Government guidance that it is possible to start shooting recreationally again within England.
Therefore, as the National Governing Body for the Sport of Clay Target Shooting in England, we are now satisfied that we can start a phased return to clay shooting with initially pay & play/practice and a return to competitive registered shoots in time.
Shooting grounds can re-open when they are ready and our members are now able to participate and enjoy the sport of clay target shooting recreationally while all following strict CV19 safety protocols and guidance.
Importantly, we have now also had confirmation from our insurers that our members are fully insured after considering the new guidance to get out and enjoy their sport again.
We have already issued comprehensive guidance to grounds to assist with their planning to implement the strict social distancing and safety measures to protect their staff, the shooters and our sport.
In preparation for shooting please make yourself aware of the CPSA guideline

Another post lockdown shoot set up by Brian’s team. A dry sunny day, with a strong gusty wind, provided some skittish targets which moved around. The strong wind was reflected in the lower scores. Well, at least that is my excuse. Short of cartridges, then remember DB Guns is open late on a Friday.

Following the success of the previous shoot and the dedication of Brian’s team, our second post lockdown shoot was held at Quainton. This was held in a similar format as before. Again we were treated to some fine weather and a good set up. I heard several comments from shooters who thought the layout was good. A mixture of some easy birds, (yes the author did straight one stand), and far more demanding stands. Something for everyone. It was lovely to get out and see everyone enjoying themselves. A big thank you again to Buckinghamahsire gun shop DB guns for setting up the excellent shoot.

Our first shoot since the start of Lockdown was held at Doddershall. The shoot was held in a different format than usual. Members-only and pre-booking were required to shoot. We were grouped into squads of six before arrival. On arrival, a short introductory briefing on how we were to proceed around the shoot, how to button and score the cards. Hand sanitiser was available on all the stands. There were 39 shooters, so six squads of six and three more to shoot after the six squads had competed.
After we had shot we immediately left, leaving behind Brian, Eli and Dawn to clear up. A really great thank you to DB Guns for running this shoot for us. The weather was good, it was nice to be out shooting in the pleasant countryside in shorts and tee shirt again. We must not forget the landowners who let us shoot on their fields. Without them, we could not pursue our sport.

After a break caused by torrential rain and waterlogged fields, it was good to be back shooting clays again. The rain mainly held off for the shoot, but a light drizzle did start before the end of the shoot. Today’s shoot was fairly compact, saving on walking and tramping across the wet fields. Will the numbers of shooters decrease when the older members have to start isolating themselves in the next few weeks? Time will tell.

A warm windy February shoot. Rather wet underfoot.
