Ladies Only Shooting

We would like to make our tournaments a bit more ‘social’, with that in mind we’d like to have BBQs and other social get-togethers after our shoots, if you can lend a hand by BBQing or just ‘helping out’, please contact our Tournament Director, Rick Ellis
Lock the Gate:
We have had quite a few instances lately of the gate not being closed and locked, if you are the last one at the range, please take the responsibility of checking to make sure everything is locked (container compound, toilets and gate).
A few reminders of etiquette and procedures for indoor shooting: – Always be sure your membership card is visible!
1. Whistle rules (always ensure someone is designated to the whistle):
a) 2 short whistles – Archers to the line
b) 1 short whistle – Begin Shooting
c) 3 short whistles – Retrieve arrows
d) 4 or more whistles – EMERGENCY – All stop shooting.
2. Do not nock arrow until everyone is on or behind the shooting line and whistle is blown.
3. Shoot 3 arrows, more allowed if you don’t hold up others
4. Step back from the shooting line when finished shooting
5. Never draw above top of butt. Ensure your arrow will hit the butt, if not, move a butt closer
6. Shoot only from distances where you are likely to hit the butt move a bitt closer if not.
7. When pulling arrows be careful of those behind you.
8. Check your equipment before shooting.
9. Youth under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
10. Please help set up, take down and cleanup. Don’t leave this to others, someone has to set up and take down, it doesn’t take look if EVERYONE pitches in! Come a bit early and stay until the end.
11. Ensure container is locked if you are last to leave.
The outdoor range is still there for your use – members are welcome during any daylight hours!
