Range Etiquette

  • ·         Remain on the pathway, when walking around the course always follow the course markers.
  • ·         When your round has finished exit the course by following the markers, never track back around the course or cut across the course.
  • ·         When searching for an arrow place your bow across the target face to indicate your presence to others.
  • ·         If your group is holding up groups behind you, you should allow that group to pass thorough.
  • ·         If a group is leaving a target and another group is waiting to shoot the same target, indicate when you are well out of the way by calling “CLEAR”. Never shoot unless you are sure it is clear.
  • ·         If you find a lost arrow, please hand it in to the Club House.
