Archers using spotters

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/Field 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.


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.
