COVID-19

This page provides updates during these difficult times.
Announcements here on the use of all our Huts and organisation of Meets.
Some information is specific to Members.

UPDATE 9 November 2020

General update sent to Members re Huts during Autumn.  See Members Area.

Huts
The LSCC Committee has decided to keep the club huts open for use by its members only for the time being (existing bookings from other clubs will be honoured until the end of December, but will be cancelled from then until at least the end of March).
The ever changing restrictions on travel, use of accommodation and other restrictions placed upon people in different parts of Scotland and the  rest of the UK are making the administration and  communication with clubs around safe and permitted use of huts too complex and burdensome for all concerned.
We very much regret having had to make this decision, and hope to open up our huts for other clubs to use again as soon as the situation stabilises and restrictions ease sufficiently.

Use of LSCC huts must strictly and at all times be in accordance with Scottish Government regulations and guidance  regarding indoor household gatherings, travel etc, that are in force at time of use of the hut under the 5 Level protection system. More details can be found in the 9 November update in the Members Area (for LSCC members).

Detailed protocols for use and cleaning are in place for each hut, and need to be complied with by all users. This information will be provided by Booking Secretaries  (for non-LSCC users) or can be found in the Members Area (for LSCC members). 

We will regularly review the status of our huts and update here when any change is made.

If you have any questions about a booking you have,  please do not hesitate to contact the Bookings and Finance Secretary for the hut you have booked.  

Meets and Day Meets
Current restrictions on households gathering indoors mean that for the foreseeable future our planned programme of meets for the rest of 2020 and early 2021 cannot go ahead.  

In the absence of weekend meets the Committee are looking to have LSCC Day Meets which are possible as 'Organised Sport'.  We have appointed a Covid Officer to oversee this, and are looking for volunteers to come forward to organise a Day Meet. Please see the Members Area

The full update from the President to members (27 September) can be found on the Members Area.
 
General advice for LSCC Day Meets open to non-Members will be added here as and when available.

 

What is your top tip for a new member of the club?
It’s great – just throw yourself at it.

Why this club?
They’re a wonderful bunch with such an expansive membership base and so many different experiences to draw on.
