ARCHERS USING SPOTTERS

Note: It is the archers’ responsibility to supply their own Spotter and ensure that their details and required information are included on the entry form when it is submitted.
Spotters and any scopes and chairs etc. must remain in their archer’s half of the shooting lane so as not to disrupt their neighbouring competitors.
AGB Rule 1102 b (vii) will apply to all archers using a Spotter (Safety issue):
A VI archer using a spotter shall only approach the target when accompanied by his/her spotter.
The Range may be available for practice Friday afternoon but check with reception first as we do not officially have use of it until Saturday. All markers and tactile equipment must be removed from the Range when you have finished.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE:
When practicing (at any time) and more than one target is being used then a ‘Field Captain’ must be appointed to comply with Archery GB insurance requirements. Whistle or verbal commands may be used but someone must take responsibility for the range.
