THE Chaguaramas Development Authority (CDA) will meet with the Target Archery Federation (TTTFA) next Thursday to discuss the future of the Michael P Mackenzie Archery Range.
On December 9, police visited the range in Tucker Valley, Chaguaramas, while some archers were training, and said they had been ordered to shut it down.
The range is used by many clubs and is usually the site of national tournaments.
TTTFA president Gregory Quesnel told Newsday he hoped the move is temporary. But the association had not been told anything about it.
He said then, “There was no communication, written or otherwise, that I’ve received from the CDA. They sent the CDA police, who told us their instructions were to tell us we have to leave the ground."
But speaking with Newsday on Thursday morning, Quesnel said the CDA had since e-mailed the federation to say it wanted to meet.
"They haven't set any agenda, so we don't really know what it's about. So I wouldn't know anything further until after the meeting."
"Some of our member clubs have grounds and we've been using those. But we haven't had any national tournaments."
Newsday tried to contact assistant to the CDA general manager Karen Clark-Rowley, but all calls went unanswered.
