26/05/20 10.30 am - Ranges Open from 16th June

                  Draft Roster view     Draft Safety Plan and Procedures view

Both ranges will open after 15th June using a safety plan provided by SSAA Tas and approved by Community Sport and Recreation. We will be starting on Week 3 of the roster. With a limit of 20 people the AIF roster should remain unchanged apart from inside airgun, but the Mitchell Range roster has been modified. The main changes are a reduction in the number of disciplines and the Training Range (Practice Range) will not open until 11 am on a Saturday. Scores will not be recorded during Stage 2. It is important that you are familiar with the Safety Plan and Procedures.

 

11/05/20 8.30 am - Roadmap to Recovery

                  Roadmap to Recovery view

Planning is underway to reopen ranges after 15th June using Roadmap to Recovery - Stage 2 guidelines and restrictions. We will be starting on Week 3 of the roster. With a limit of 20 people the AIF roster should remain unchanged apart from inside airgun, but the Mitchell Range roster will have to be modified to limit numbers at any one time. More details of those changes will be posted when they are confirmed, probably after he next committee meeting on 18th May.

02/05/20 9.30 am - Principles and framework for resumption of sport.

                     Principles view              AIS Guidelines/Activities view

You may have already seen them but linked above are the documents that were released yesterday that provide the principles and guidelines for the resumption of sport. While the principles appear to give scope for an early opening of our non-contact, spectator free, outdoor ranges, the AIS guidelines offer nothing. The document appears to have spent some time constructing the Level A, B, C Guidelines for high performance/professional sport and simply cut and paste the same guidelines for community and individual sports. I have contacted the Secretary of SSAA Tas by email, hoping SSAA will put pressure on the Government and AIS to come up with something more practicable.

27/04/20 - Ranges to remain closed until end of May.

Considering the facts that Wellington Park remains closed and distancing and gathering directives remain in place, the executive has decided that the ranges should remain closed until the end of May with an option to open before that time if conditions improve.

There is light at the end of the tunnel as, last Friday 24th April, the Prime Minister announced that the National Cabinet will develop, by the end of the next week, a guiding set of principles for sport at all levels. This will allow us to refine protocols and processes on how and when our ranges can open.


16/04/20 8.30 am - The Committee Meeting of 20th April has been cancelled.

Any decisions that need to be made regarding essential Club business will be made by the Executive and reported to the next Committee Meeting as per the constitution. A decision regarding the closure of ranges will be announced here on 27th April.


23/03/20 9.00 pm - AIF and Mitchell Ranges closed until end of April 
 

We take the health and well-being of our community and members very seriously. We are closely monitoring the quickly changing effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, in-line with local council sporting and community announcements and expectations, the Executive of SSAA T03 has decided to close both SSAA T03 ranges until the end of April 2020 during which time we will be exploring opportunities to open, either fully or partially, as soon as possible. Please check this space for further updates and contact those members who you know don't have internet access.

                                                       Joining - in Brief
                     Please visit the Join Us link for more detailed information.

To shoot long term at T03 you will need:

1. Club Membership. Join SSAA online at www.ssaa.org.au or use an application form and make sure you nominate Glenorchy as your preferred branch. Being a member of the branch means you are automatically a member of the club.

2. Firearms Licence with appropriate categories (See Firearms Services website)

Obtaining a licence can be a lengthy process so while you wait for your Firearms Licence to be processed you can still shoot with club guns using an Exemption. A Minor's Permit is required if you are under 18.

We recommend that you visit one of the ranges on a rostered meeting to talk with someone to help guide you through the process. Wednesday evenings after 7pm at the AIF Range or the 1st or 3rd Saturday after 10am at the Mitchell Range are preferred times. New Members Packs are available from both ranges.

Non T03 SSAA members can transfer to T03 via the National website or a Transfer Form and are reminded that they, like all members, must also join the SSAA T03 Handgun Division in order to have a Permit to Acquire a Handgun signed by a club official.

On presentation of the receipt to a committee member, juniors can claim reimbursement for their first year SSAA membership fee.
