Individual and Group Safety

 

1. 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 Marshall (lower membership number). Someone must act as the Line Marshall.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

5. 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 your bow towards the ground and let down. Step off the line.

 

6. SHOOTING SPACE- Only one member per target. Two members from the same family and living together may shoot on the same target unless they are crowding others.

 

...The 2 meter rule must be adhered to. From center to center the butts are 2.52 meters apart. We will shoot one line for now.

 

...Maximum 6 arrows per end. If people are waiting to shoot and want to use the butt you are on, limit your practice to one hour.

 

7. 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 Marshall know. Be considerate and don’t hold up the line too long.

 

8. 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.
