Archers Etiquette

A Good Archer:

Does not talk in a loud voice whilst others are shooting.

Does not talk to another competitor who obviously prefers to be silent.

Does not make any exclamation on the shooting line that might disconcert a neighbour in the act of shooting.

Does not walk up and down the shooting line comparing scores.

Does not touch anyone else’s equipment without permission.

Does not go behind the target to retrieve arrows before their score has been recorded.

When calling scores does so in groups of three, for example ‘7 - 7 - 5’ pause ‘5 - 5 - 3’.

Whilst calling scores, points to the arrow but does not touch the arrow or the target face.

Offers to pay for a replacement If they break another’s arrow through their own carelessness.

Thanks the Target Captain at the end of each round for work on their behalf.

Does not leave litter.
