Need To Know This Week

Safety Reminder At The Indoor Range

Please remember to use the chain lock on the inside of the indoor range door as an additional safety precaution. If you are the first to arrive, please put the chain on when you are inside to prevent others entering while you are shooting. When someone knocks at the door, you will need to let them in by removing and then replacing the chain.

Thanks for helping keep everyone safe at the indoor range.

What’s On In The District

If you’re getting itchy that there’s not much on over winter, why not organise a tournament? We have excellent how-to guides on how to run a tournament and it’s easier than you think. Chat to anyone on the committee, or email me to find out more. 

Remember to keep an eye on Archery OSA for Archery NZ target tournaments, and NZFAA (NZ Field Archery Association) for Field events.  

Keep In Touch

Have fun and safe shooting
