Shooting Safely Statement
ID cards must be on display when purchasing ammunition or using club rifles, they must also be produced upon request by any club member, failure to do so will result in being escorted from site. Repeated failure to produce will result in a review to determine if continued membership is desirable.
Persons under the age of 18 who wish to join the club are able to do so, as long as they are of a physical size to enable them to shoot safely and are supervised at ALL TIMES by an experienced shooter over the age of 21. Persons undertaking supervisory duties are not allowed to shoot or participate in other activities whilst delivering the supervisory duty. In addition: The club has a safety ruling that states, use of the Rim Fire Lanes is restricted to persons over the age of 14. Persons of 12 and 13 are restricted to air rifles
To become a full member of the rim-fire sections, all members must have demonstrated a full understanding of range rules and safety. Upon approval they automatically become available for selection as range officers and will be allocated dates during the year where they must provide range officer cover for the site. If they are not able to attend on the allocated day it is their responsibility to arrange for another full member to cover for them. Failure to provide cover on two or more occasions will result in a vote being taken to decide if continued club membership is desirable.
