Boorowa Gun Clubs January 2021 competition shoot was held on Saturday 23rd of January.
A serious heatwave hitting south east NSW kept numbers down but some very competitive scores were shot with plenty of red on the board.
The Clubhouse and grounds were looking shipshape although somewhat parched by the recent hot and dry conditions. Although hot, a stiff breeze most of the day kept shooting conditions relatively pleasant.
For members and visitors it was the first time that many had returned to competition since early 2020. New arrangements are now in place at the Club to enable a Covid-19 safe approach to hosting competitions. These arrangements such as self nomination through the My Club My Scores App, contactless payment via Eftpos, social distancing etc are all very important.
The Club management appreciates every visitor and members efforts to comply with social distancing and personal cleanliness to help keep us all safe.
