Spoke to Bevan regarding archery at Dechmont , he said there was a possibility of setting something up. Enquiring on behalf of my son and myself.

Winner of the bottle cap speed shoot won a mystery prize. It was incredibly windy with the 50 yard being very challenging especially when the day light was fading fast making for low score but excellent banter and excuses from all.
The roadworks have moved further up the road, so the club is now accessible from the East Kilbride end.😀
WARNING! Muttonhole Road is closed today! From the East Kilbride end at least. I assume the flooding has overwhelmed the meagre defences.
Hi , I'm looking at joining a club and as I stay in Eddlewood it would be very close to me , What do I need to join your club , I've been shooting on and off for years now and love the idea of a club. Cheers.
Change of HFT venue. Greg Morss has informed STS that the venue for this coming Sunday has changed from New Caledonian in East Kilbride to Cloybank in Kilsyth. The original date for Cloybank on 30th July will be held available for New Caledonian.
Came down tonight to introduce myself to the club with a view of starting shooting. Having gone to the trouble of getting my licence etc however I understand if the books are full but couldn't help feel a bit deflated by what I felt was a closed door response to my initial enquiries. I will be coming down as a visitor just felt I had to share this though.

[03/17/20]   Corona Virus Important Information

The committee have made the decision that at present DARPC will remain open to existing club members only.

You are all aware of the current situation with the virus and therefore will be using the facilities at your own risk.

We do ask that any club members who attend adhere to a common sense approach and government issued guidelines for example..

1. If you feel unwell in any manner please DO NOT visit the club.

2. Adhere to the 2 metre recommended space between yourself and other club members.

3. If you are within the 'HIGH RISK' group please consider carefully if enjoying your hobby is more important than your health.

4. If you do have to cough or sneeze please ensure you use either a tissue over your face or a piece of clothing I.e the inside of your elbow. Remember this is an air borne virus so no sharing please. Place any used tissues in the bin.

5. Please remember government recommends washing hands for a minimum of 20 seconds or using hand sanitizer regularly and try to avoid touching your face.

The club will be closed to all NON-MEMBERS at present.

Any new members wishing to make enquiries about joining the club should contact the club secretary.

Keep safe during these quick changing times, be sensible and don't attend the club unless you are happy to take on the responsibility of the risks involved.
