COVID Notice: The volunteers at SSAA (ACT) are wanting to get back to running events, but we will need your assistance to do so. Currently masks are required in the ACT Indoors.The McKinley Range shelter is not classified as indoors for this purpose but anywhere with walls and a roof is, this will include the wailing wall and many other areas. If there is a mask requirement at the time of the event, the volunteers will already be busy enough with running the event, as we usually are, without having to attempt to police COVID safe behaviours. There are also likely to be restrictions on sharing equipment outside family groups without sanitisation. Your actions as attendees and competitors in assisting us by complying with any COVID requirements will greatly assist us in running a successful event. Please consider this in deciding whether to nominate.
Things are looking pretty good for the BRT Federal Cup with a couple of weeks left for people to nominate. We currently have 36 shooters registered taking up 58 of the approximately 96 spots we can easily run across four details.
We are going to try something different with the trophies this year, a small keeper trophy for first place in the Dirty Dozen and hopefully an alternative to trophies that we’ve been using at Canberra Rifle Club and we really like. More details on that once it’s confirmed we can get it done. This will also allow us to put a few more items on the prize table along with the items from BRT.
Looking forward to having everyone here, the mask requirements get relaxed this Friday which will make things a little more comfortable.
Thanks to all that attended the BRT Federal Cup, a great day was had by all.
