The field course is a ONE-WAY system. This MUST be observed at all times. Patrons must never walk back to a peg from a target.
Patrons must always use the marked paths. Wandering off these paths is a breach of course safety. Tampering with the paths in any way may result in suspension or ban.
The field course has four pegs to shoot from: BLUE WHITE RED SILVER. Archers are to shoot ONLY from the peg they are allocated by Lee. Failure to adhere may result in suspension or ban. To progress to the next colored peg, a score of 500+ must be witnessed. (600+ to achieve silver).
Only one archer is permitted to shoot from their allocated peg at a time. The archer has a maximum of 3 arrows per target. Cease shooting once you have a scoring arrow.
When retrieving arrows, your bow MUST always be leant against the target in full view of the target's peg. NEVER go looking for arrows without leaving a clear marker for other archers to see. Failure to adhere may result in suspension or ban.
Patrons WILL use the marked paths at all times even when searching for arrows. Crossing/climbing border fencing to retrieve lost arrows will result in suspension or ban.
It is the responsibility of every archer on the site to ensure that all other participants are shooting safely.
All shooting must cease if 3 LONG BLASTS of a whistle or horn are heard. You may continue once Lee or a Wye Valley Archery instructor gives the all clear.
Wye Valley Archery instructors and Silver Arrow holders' word are final.
Wye Valley Archery reserves the right, to remove from the course and premises, any patron that is in breach of the above rules.
