Sample of Archery Range Agreement

Laguna Woods Village Archery Range Rules

 

ARCHERY IS PERMITTED ONLY IN THIS DESIGNATED RANGE, AT THE PROVIDED TARGETS. IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT SHOOTING ARROWS IN ANY OTHER PLACE WITHIN LAGUNA WOODS VILLAGE IS A VIOLATION OF CITY ORDINANCE.

 

Please Read and Have a Signed Agreement on file, before shooting any arrows.

 

1.This range and these targets are intended for non-mechanical bows and field/target arrows ONLY. NO CROSSBOWS. Lower power compound bows may be used with prior approval of range manager.

2. PROVIDING A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR ARCHERY ENJOYMENT is our number one concern.

3. SCHEDULED CLASSES or Laguna Woods Club meetings/Events have priority for use of this range.

4. Never place an arrow into your bow if ANYONE is beyond the shooting line.

5. All shooting will take place BEHIND THE SHOOTING LINE. If you need to shoot at a closer target, have the marshal, teacher, range manager, or designated attendant move it for you.

5. Arrows are shot in ROUNDS. (Number of arrows in a round is usually 3, but can change depending upon number of archers and the directions of the marshal/range manager).

6. All archers shoot at the same time and retrieve arrows ONLY WHEN IT IS SAFE. The marshal or any archer on the line will call “CLEAR” before any shots are fired. Each archer should respond “CLEAR” to indicate they are ready to draw their bow. If there is any reason why arrows should NOT be fired, it is each person’s responsibility to should loudly “HOLD!”

7. Before retrieving arrows (after each round) the marshal or range manager will call again, “CLEAR” to indicate that each archer should stop firing. When it is safe, all archers retrieve arrows at the same time.

8. If you drop an arrow and it crosses the line while shooting is taking place, you may retrieve it ONLY when you hear ALL CLEAR.

10. Always draw your bow with the arrow facing DOWN or directly toward the target. NEVER DRAW OVERHEAD, or toward another archer, to prevent accidently releasing an arrow in any direction other than toward the target.

11. If you are unable to abide by these rules, DO NOT use this facility.

About Archery

 Laguna Woods Archery Club is being organized to bring archery to the residents of Laguna Woods Village, in a safe and fun manner. We are actively involved in obtaining the appropriate permits to bring the fun and healthful sport of competitive archery to Laguna Woods.

When we are in place, all residents will be able to learn the safe, healthful and fun sport of archery from experienced and qualified teachers. 

The photo to the left is of the president of the club, Gordon Richiusa, who has taught archery (and many other forms of martial arts) for many decades. He is a member of three martial arts Halls of Fame, and a teacher at Saddleback Community College.

If you click on the picture to the left, you can watch an interesting video that one of his students created about the Budo Temple in Japan, where archery is considered a meditation. 

Soon, more videos and links will be appearing in this area, including safety and training video issued by organizations such as USA Archery Association. We (in Laguna Woods Archery) currently have more than 50 Laguna Woods Village residents signed up as active members of our club. 

Our officers are members of USA Archery (the certifying body for competitive archery instructors, as well as competitive events, such as the Senior Olympics). 

You can join THE LAGUNA WOODS ARCHERY CLUB NOW, and be ready to shoot arrows, once we have everything in place. If you click the blue email link below. In your email please Include your contact information and we will get back to you in whatever manner you wish. 

Thanks for your interest in the Laguna Woods Archery Club!

Signed,

The Officers of the Club,

Rod, Bob, and Gordon
