BE ALERT----SAFETY FIRST
As an archery club, we are very fortunate to have an Indoor Range and 2 outdoor courses on our property: 3-D & Field, . All members need to remember that multiple archers, can be on any of the courses, at any given time.
** SAFETY ALWAYS COMES FIRST
Also, for your awareness, you may see hunters on the property. Do not be alarmed, as these are club members that have permission to bow hunt deer and turkey.
Have fun, Stay Alert, and be aware of other shooters at all times.
**INDOOR RANGE: Private lessons are given by members. Vocal distractions, if very disruptive can be addressed between members to reach a compromise. There can be no expectation of complete quiet on the indoor range given that we have 137+ members.
