Whilst out taking photographs at the Clay Ground on Tuesday, 10th June 2018, Eileen noticed that there were a good number of shooters not wearing hearing and eye protection. Please be aware there are signs as visitors drive into the Clay Ground stating this is not an option at Chalk Farm Clay Ground.
Chalk Farm Clay Ground are happy to lend hearing and eye protection to anyone that needs them but visitors do need to ask. On the other hand, if you are a regular shooter we request that you please buy some for your personal use..
This is very much a safety message as many people have been hit by a clay fragment, somewhere at some point.
Steven says: "Its the particles and decibels you don't see that can blind you and make you become deaf." Most shooters that Eileen had spoken to had simply forgotten but how terrible it would be if someone needless suffered as a result of this oversight.
Please be aware that those pressing the buttons on the Compak/DTL have been told not to start until everyone is wearing appropriate hearing and eye protection.
1. they are just doing their job if they remind you; and
2. this is for your own protection and is a health and safety requirement.
Additional signs are being made this week and will be placed around the Skeet an DTL benches as all s spectators and children of ALL AGES (including those in pushchairs) need to wear ear defenders and eye protection as well.
Many thanks for everyone’s help on this.
We can lend them to anyone that needs them but ask if your shoot regularly please buy some. Many people have been hit by a clay fragment, somewhere at some point.
