Frequently Asked Questions
How much is the membership fee.
Our membership fees are set each year at our AGM and reflect the hire of our ground, affiliation fees to Archery GB, Lancashire, and northern countys and amounts to replace targets, bosses and other equipment
Why is there an extra fee for indoor shooting through the winter
Our yearly membership fees only covers the rental on our outdoor field. When we shoot indoors, we have to hire the venue and have to cover the hire cost by charging each member a small fee. The fee applies to each member per session and there is no reduction for Junior members.
When do we shoot
We shoot all year round, the main Club shoot being on Saturday Mornings from about 9:30 to 12:30 at our outdoor venue. We also have the opportunity to shoot Monday – Tuesday and Friday mornings throughout the year. During Winter, we also shoot indoors on Friday evenings.
Can I shoot alone at the club?
Absolutely not. When shooting is taking place a minimum of two people must be present at all times. The second person does not have to be an archer, but must be a responsible ADULT. In the event of only two people shooting one person must always be on lookout
