Leagues require a minimum of 20 participants. You must register and pay the week prior to league start time. There is brief practice before competition commences.
1. Each league will be run by a volunteer (shoots for free) who is charged with the overall administration and closing the facility (see closing checklist).
2. The league participants are all responsible for clean-up at the end of the evening. This involves sweeping, straightening up the range.
3. The participants designate a Range Officer each evening to call the line. No one is to knock an arrow until the RO authorizes. No one is to go beyond the shooting line once shooting starts until the RO authorizes.
4. The leagues will only be as good as the participation. When it is your turn to help with set-up or clean up make sure you are there early and committed to staying later for clean up. We encourage everyone to participate and have a great league.
