Yes, these are all valid points. As a contractor myself I completely understand that I could be in a very different financial position at the moment if timings were different, and many AGB members will, themselves, have been furloughed. This is why I say 'support within reason'.I am not sure hat is mean by 'essential services' . They may be essential if archers were shooting, but if I am not shooting then those services cannot be essential
I am a pensioner I do not have money to waste paying for not being able to shoot.
In my county of the 12 clubs that shoot regularly I know 3 re-opened (own fields or golf course), 1 has re-opened after finding a new field, and 4 are still closed as a result of using school/university premises. My club is one of the latter, and if we hear nothing again this week we are looking into finding an alternative venue (rugby club pitch).Does anyone have a feeling for how many clubs are up and running yet?
