Archery Range Rules
Before you can push the target further back, It is required that your average arrow grouping is within the 40 cm targets at a closer distance. For the ones renting our equipment, the maximum distance allowed is of 12 meters.
All archers must call “CLEAR” before shooting can begin.
The last shooter on the line shall call “CLEAR” when they have completed shooting.
No one shall approach the targets until all shooting has been completed and the range has been declared “CLEAR” to retrieve arrows.
The last person to return from retrieving arrows shall confirm that there is nobody down range and call the line “CLEAR” to commence shooting.
If you drop an arrow and you cannot reach it, wait until the range is called “CLEAR” to retrieve that arrow.
When you have finished your shooting end, step away from the shooting line and stand behind the waiting line to indicate that you have completed shooting.
No archer may draw his bow with an arrow, except while standing on the shooting line when the line is clear for shooting.
No Archer may draw back the string of his bow using any technique which could allow an arrow to hit the ceiling, the walls, or the floor.
No broad head arrows allowed on the club targets. If you want to test your broadheads, you are required to bring your own personal target. Crossbows are prohibited.
Pay attention and cooperate with range masters and instructors carrying out their duties.
Archery Range Etiquette
Archers should be mindful and respectful to shoot no more than the amount of arrows that does not affect (or hold up) the shooting line.
Step back from the shooting line to give the other archers a chance to complete their ends.
Keep talking on the shooting line to a minimum to avoid distracting other shooters.
Do not comment on someone else’s shooting during an end.
Have an encouraging remark to pass, rather than a sarcastic one.
Do not make unkind remarks about your own shooting as this may upset or distract someone.
Never touch equipment belonging to someone else without the owner’s expressed consent.
Respect the other arrows in the target while removing your own arrows.
Leave the other archers’ arrows in the target unless asked to remove them.
If you lose an arrow point in the target butt, please inform a range master to remove the arrow point to prevent damage to other members’ arrows.
