Indoor Target Range Rules
a) To prolong target medium life, avoid concentrated shooting in a single area. Target faces should be moved periodically.
b) Archers will shoot from an agreed distance from the target. All archers must observe this distance and not shoot ahead or behind other archers. Spectators are only allowed behind the archers shooting and should not distract or bother those that are actively shooting.
c) No one shall approach targets until all have finished shooting. Once shooting has stopped the command “CLEAR” will designate the signal that the targets may be approached.
d) Members and guests shall abide by the rules and regulations posted for York County Bowmen.
e) The shooting of field, chisel or bullet-head tips are the only type of arrow tips allowed to be shot at any target medium.
f) Nocked arrows may only be drawn in the target range area and must be pointed toward the target (down range) until released or let down.
g) All archers under the age of sixteen must be under the immediate supervision of an adult member or parent.
h) Anyone using crossbows must supply a separate backstop which can be attached to the regular face of the butt. These are necessary to stop the bolts from penetrating through the regular butts.
