Archery Range Etiquette
Pay attention and cooperate with club officials carrying out their duties.
Music volume and genre should be kept to a level agreeable to all who are present.
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.
Attend meetings and air your views there, do not gripe on the range and upset others.
All members have the responsibility to keep the archery range and office areas clean. Please pick up all papers/used targets, etc., and place them in the garbage/recycling bins.
If you lose an arrow point in the butt, do not attempt to retrieve it.
Never touch equipment belonging to someone else without his or her prior consent. Unless the owner cannot be located and it is presenting a hazard.
Step back from the shooting line to give the other archers a chance to complete their ends.
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.
Make yourself available for some duties, such as cleaning the range, maintenance of target butts, etc.
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.
