Message from State President – COVID-19

To all SCWA Club Delegates

By now you will most likely all be aware of announcements made on Sunday by our federal and state governments. Consistent with the actions of both as well as the advice of the Chief Medical Officer. For us to beat this virus it is up to us all to act and behave responsibly, as we are in the front line and we must adhere to the strict rules of social distancing.  These are very challenging times for all of us and it is paramount we all do the right thing. 

As the President of SCWA I must regrettably advise that the board of SCWA has suspended all SCWA state run shoots until further notice. The Board will be in discussion with the clubs who have agreed to run state events for 2020 at some stage and hopefully this suspension can be lifted sooner rather than later. Our shooting season is a likened to the suspension of the AFL season!  Depending upon the timing and the development of Covid-19 there may be an opportunity to reschedule these shoots later in the year.  

Also from discussions yesterday with the Perth Metro club the English Sporting Nationals will be handed back to SCA for them to decide when and where, if at all the 2020 English Sporting Nationals will be held.  The SCWA Board will not be asking any WA clubs for an EOI for this event.

I thank you all for your understanding during these difficult times.

Would you please forward this important email to your club President and Secretary for distribution to all your members.

Stay safe everyone. Remember social distancing is vital and stay positive.

         Regards
