Exceptions to this rule are clubs with registered club colours. Waterproofs are not subject to this rule but both colours are readily available.The rule is not generally enforced Monday to Friday and new members are allowed some leeway for a short time. Note, though, that you may be asked to leave the line at Invitation or ‘away’ shoots if you do not comply:

(See GNAS/Archery GB Rules of Shooting for fuller details.) See also Shooting Administration Procedures

Please note: enclosed footwear must be worn at all times, on the archery field.

BOWSHOT

This is the name of the club newsletter which is published occasionally during the year. In it you will find information about general club organisation and developments; competition results; forthcoming events; news and general chit-chat. To help fill the pages, the Editor is always willing to receive items from members for inclusion.

ARROW FINDING

Count your arrows before you start and when you finish.

Our shooting takes place on a school playing-field and, for this reason, all ‘grassed’ arrows MUST be found before leaving the site. If you cannot find your arrow you must tell someone.

Do not use arrows of all-carbon construction as they cannot easily be found with the metal-detectors.

ETIQUETTE

(Extracted from the G.N.A.S. Rules of shooting)
A good archer does not:
a) Talk in a loud voice when others are shooting
b) Talk to another competitor who obviously prefers to be silent.
c) Make any exclamation on the shooting line which may disconcert a neighbour in the act of shooting.
d) Go behind the target to reti?ieve his/her arrows before his/her score has been recorded.
e) Walk up and down the line comparing scores.
t) Touch anyone else’s equipment without permission.
g) Leave any litter.
h) Turn up late for shoots keeping others waiting, remember ample time is required for making equipment ready.
A good archer does:
a)Call his/her score in groups of three, starting from the highest scoring arrow, i.e. 8,7,6, pause 5,5,4. Do not touch any arrows until they have been scored, just point to the ones being called, otherwise those arrows may be disqualified.
 

HANDICAPS

There is a system of handicapping set down by the G.N.A.S. This is so that at certain competitions away and monthly summer club shoots, everyone is leveled off, as in golf. How it works is that (to try to explain it simply) if there is a possible score of 100 and you would normally score 90 then your handicap would be 10. If, however, you would normally score 40 your handicap would be 60. Assuming the seasoned archer achieves their score of 90, this is added to their h/cap. Making their score 100. If the less experienced archer excels themselves and scores 50 this is added to their h/cap. Makes their aggregate score 110, thus allowing the less seasoned archer to win. That is it in simplistic terms, but you can see how it roughly works and allows a leveling of archers. If you shoot better than your norm, you are in with a chance for the medals.

To obtain your handicap you must shoot three recorded qualifying rounds, both indoors and out, They don’t have to be competition shoots, provided you ensure your scores are countersigned by someone in authority (preferably the field captain) before handing them to our Records Officer.

 Once you have three recorded scores the handicaps for each are worked out and an average taken, that is then your declared handicap. The only change to this figure is to reduce it by shooting better. If you go through a bad patch, your handicap is not increased. This only happens at the start of the shooting season, (January for outdoor June for indoor) when it is reassessed by the Records Officer.
