All nomination forms must be received by Saturday 20th July 2019.
All members and visitors must sign-in on arrival and before shooting.
The sign-in book is located on the table as you enter the club pavillion.
For visitors from other archery clubs the shooting fee is $5.
For non-members (beginners) there is a separate sign on book on Sundays at the Beginner's container.
With the increasing number of members shooting on Sundays, we have divided the field up as follows to improve safety. Beginners (ie non-members) are to shoot on the left side of the field and members are to shoot on the right side of the field. The Director of Shooting (DOS) stand is the divider for the field.
For added safety the first few lanes on the left side of the field closest to the DOS stand will be out of bounds. This is to protect members from stray arrows.
Due to a recent theft at the Club, members are encouraged to not leave bags and bows unattended at the building. Please take all bags etc down to the shooting area.
Last person to leave the Club must ensure all doors are shut, the security system is turned on and the toilets are locked. Shut the gate on the way out.
The club conducts several working bees each year - normally as part of the preparation for major events on the shooting calendar. Dates of working bees will be advertised to members.
If you are not able to attend these working bees, please assist the Club when you are at the grounds by picking up rubbish, taking rubbish away (we do not have a collection service), wiping down benches, keeping target faces neatly stored etc. every bit helps.
Beginner line supervision
Each Sunday we conduct come-and-try sessions for the public. To run these sessions we need volunteers to supervise and to instruct the beginners.
We are looking for additional members to assist in providing basic instruction to the beginners. If you would like to help us, maybe only 1 Sunday every couple of months, then let me know so we can develop a roster.
