Maintenance of the Club Environment

In light of our growing membership and the subsequent increased use of the indoor range, members are reminded of the need to keep the club’s facilities in order. To support and provide a safe and clean environment for everyone it is imperative that all members and leagues leave the indoor range in the order. It is expected that all equipment be returned to its original space after use. For example, tables, archery butts, signs, and backstop foam. Failure to return the club’s facilities to an orderly condition after use will result in action by the Board of Directors against the specific members/leagues involved.
