General


There is an Emergency Action Plan posted on the bulletin board by the gate.

 

1. Equipment on the range shall be limited to legal hunting gear or equipment recognized as competitive by the NFAA, IBO or FITA using target or field points only. (No broadheads on the target butts. The use of crossbows is illegal in Burnaby)

 

2. When on the Range, Membership Badges must be visible. Only Members may use the Range (no guests). Report any infractions of Rules to a Board Member.

 

3. Children and pets must be closely supervised.

 

4. No running or “horseplay” on the range.

 

5. Supervision by at least one parent or an appointed guardian is required while youth (under 18) are participating in archery at the range. NO DROP OFF

 

6. A person must be 19 yrs. or older to be a guardian of youth.

Individual and Group Safety

 

 

LINE CONTROL- Whenever there are more than two archers on the range all rules are in effect and shooting will be controlled. The more senior member may act as Line Marshal (lower membership number). Someone must act as the Line Marshall.

 

ONE LINE- All archers on the field will shoot together and collect arrows together off one line in one direction.

 

SIGNAL TO SHOOT- Archers will stay off the line and may not nock an arrow until the range is clear and the Line Marshal gives the signal to shoot. One whistle blast or in a clear, loud voice ”the line is hot”.

 

SIGNAL TO COLLECT- When you have shot, step back off the line to indicate to the Line Marshal and your fellow archers that you are done shooting, when everyone is done the Line Marshal will signal to collect with three whistles or verbally ”the line is clear”.

 

EMERGENCY- If there is an emergency (someone in the shooting zone) a series of five or more whistles should be blown. Anyone can shout to “stop shooting”. If you are at full draw and have to let down, lower you’re bow towards the ground and let down. Step off the line.

 

SHOOTING SPACE- Three people can shoot on a butt at a time. You have 80 cm space to shoot in, try to stay in that space. If there is a second line, check to see that people beside you are not at full draw, then step back off the line so someone else can take a turn.

 

LOOKING FOR ARROWS- Should you miss the butt and have to look for an arrow, let the people you are shooting with know so one of them can stand in front of the butt. Let the Line Marshal know. Be considerate and don’t hold up the line too long.

 

If you are alone at the range and need to look for an arrow, leave your bow in front of the butt so anyone else showing up knows there’s someone back there.

Conduct & Etiquette


 

• Never cross the shooting line when the field is 'Hot'. No one may be downrange unless outside the safety zones.

 

• No one may use the range while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

 

• Never aim a bow, loaded or unloaded, at anyone. Only draw a bow with an arrow fitted down range at the

targets when the range is clear of people.

 

• Always draw in a safe manner and on target (no sky drawing). Arrows must land in the safety zone if accidently released.

 

• We shoot a maximum of six arrows per end. Consider shooting less if others are finished and waiting for you.

 

• When approaching targets look for arrows that may be lodged in the ground.

 

• Approach targets from the side to avoid walking into an arrow.

 

• When drawing arrows out of a target, ensure no one is standing in the path of the arrows being pulled out. Ensure everyone is standing to the side or well back when retrieving arrows. Take turns.

 

• Never run on a practice or target range. Especially when carrying arrows (walk).

 

• Keep all gear except spotting scopes at the back of the shooting path.

 

• If you are shooting tight groups, place targets off the center of the butt.

 

• Please, open the butt gates gently.

 

• Help to look after things, clean up any trash found on the field.

 

• If you are the last one to leave, make sure everything is locked up.

 

• Keep all language and activities family friendly.

 

• Never touch equipment belonging to someone else without their consent.

 

• Headphones or ear coverings must not be worn when using the range.

 

• Smoking is not permitted in the shooting area.

 

• Should an accident or injury occur the victim should file an incident report and send it to the club secretary within

48 hours of the incident occurrence. There is an Emergency Action Plan on the Bulletin Board and a First Aid Kit with incident reports in a locker at the side of the container. Butt key will open.
