MAKE UP CLASSES FOR SESSION 3

MAKE UP CLASSES FOR SESSION 3 Weeks #5 and #6    Advanced and Beginner

As you may know already, South Nation Archery has been able to keep the retail shop open for business under the “new normal” because we sell hunting supplies, and this falls under the Agricultural exemptions issued at the start of the province-wide COVID-19 response.

The Ontario Government is re-opening the provincial economy as of May 16th, and we are planning to finish our Session #3 classes, while maintaining social distancing.

Below you will find a timetable for the 8 group sessions that were postponed due to the provincial lockdown.

 

READ CAREFULLY:

  1. Both week 5 and week 6 class material will be covered in ONE 2-hour session from 6pm-8pm. You are invited to shoot on the date designated for your original group.  This completes the session that you paid for.
  2. All classes will be held OUTSIDE ONLY, rain or sun. Come prepared!
  3. All instructional equipment that you borrowed during your normal classes will be cleaned and available outside only. Everything will be cleaned again afterwards.
  4. Washroom facilities will be provided, one person at a time in the building.
  5. Physical distancing will be adhered to both on the shooting line, and at the target butts.
  6. Kathy will be wearing a mask and gloves during classes in case she needs to be less than 2m away from students, i.e. in an emergency.
  7. All students will use handwipes provided before starting class.

APRIL 16 News Update

We continue to offer a safe environment for our retail customers and continue normal business hours.

We would appreciate our customers’ help in this matter.  If at all possible, please phone or e-mail to make an appointment for your supplies and services.  In this way, we can regulate the number of people in the shop as well as practice social distancing properly.

If there are too many customers in the shop, then we ask you to wait in your vehicle and we will wave to you for your turn to enter.

Many USA-based archery manufacturers have closed down operations including PSE.  Please be patient if you have special orders on-hold.  We will get the product to you as soon as we have it.

The lanes will be closed for general target practice at least until mid-May due to the recent government announcement.  Classes are postponed.  Kathy Millar will be in touch with all group lesson students from session #3 when she will be able to resume the last 2 weeks.  We have not decided the fate of Session #4.

Please use the hand-wipes at the front door when you enter.  Continue to practice social distancing.  Thank you and stay safe.

Easter Weekend During COVID-19

Kathy and Larry wish everyone a safe, if solitary, Easter Weekend.  During this time of year, we also wish peace and joy to our customers celebrating Passover and Ramadan.

We are closed on Friday, April 10th, as well as our normal annual closure of Sunday – Tuesday.  We will re-open at 1pm on Wednesday, April 15th and continue normal business hours.  However, our lanes remain closed.

Session 4 classes, which were supposed to start the week of April 13th, have been postponed until further notice.

Take care of yourself and remember to wash your hands regularly and practice social distancing!

UPDATE on Session #4 group lessons – postponement

South Nation Archery is postponing the start of our Session #4 advanced and beginner youth and adult GROUP classes, probably until it is warm enough to use the outdoor facilities.  We will keep you posted.

In the meantime:

Normally, we are closed on Tuesdays.  However, in order to serve our customers better, we will be open on March 24th from 1 pm to 9 pm.

Private lessons will happen only via Skype.  Contact Kathleen Millar for details at:  info@southnationarchery.com

Students finishing up the last 2 lessons for Session #3 evening classes will have them re-scheduled.  Details will follow as soon as the government allows us to re-open.

Hopefully, we will see everyone in two weeks!

2019 Parking Reminder

IMPORTANT message to class participants and league/tournament archers!

Please remember to park in our parking lot whenever possible.

DO NOT PARK on the south side of County Road 38.

If the parking lot is full, please park on the north side of the road only, and east of our lane way.

This notice is very important during the snow removal season; the OPP will have your car towed away if you are in the way of the snow-plough drivers.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Beginner Classes Registration Policy

Beginner Classes Registration:

Part 1:

Effective 2019-01-13, all registrants will be required to pre-pay session fees when they pre-register for beginner youth and/or adult classes.

IMPORTANT information to participants:

STUDENTS / PARENTS must supply us with an active credit card number, expiry date and security code when registering for Friday night classes.

There will be no reminder telephone call. Please record the dates of your session and come to lesson #1 10-15 minutes early.

REFUND POLICY: There is no refund for classes. We endeavour to keep our class fees as low as possible so that families can afford to participate in the sport. Therefore, SOUTH NATION ARCHERY SUPPLY will not provide refunds for missed sessions and/or classes.

Part 2:

If you have signed up for multiple sessions, you are not required to pre-pay all sessions. SOUTH NATION ARCHERY SUPPLY realises that life changes and that pressing matters may arise which preclude your participation in the sessions you signed up for.

However, we must be advised in advance of your changed circumstances.

IMPORTANT information to participants:

In order to avoid credit card charges, returning STUDENTS / PARENTS must tell us they are cancelling all other pre-registrations NO LATER THAN the 6th week of Friday night classes in which they are currently registered.

There will be no reminder telephone call. Please record the dates of your session.

We regret to have to institute this policy. However, SOUTH NATION ARCHERY SUPPLY is dealing with more no-shows while turning away other interested students.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
