General precautions

  1. When moving around the course be aware of social distancing.
  2. When scoring the target and pulling arrows. Approach the target one at a time, pull your own arrows, then stand back to allow other archers to pull their arrows.
  3. Whenever possible, you must not touch the targets or bosses with bare hands. If you think you need to, you must sanitise your hands on completion.
  4. When searching for lost arrows. You must use your own arrow rake, let the archer retrieve their own arrows once found. If you find any other arrows, they can be left in the lost arrows bin or given to a marshal, remember to sanitize your hands on completion.
  5. Follow the Red & Yellow tapes to the next peg.
  6. Normal NFAS safety rules apply, 3 whistle blasts to stop the shoot, if used 1 prolonged blast of an Air Horn will re-start the shoot.
  7. Should Government guidance change and impose more restrictions, that advice will supersede this guidance.
