  • Names on indoor arrows

    Why do I need to write my name on my indoor arrows?
    I'm shooting my own face.
    Its an inclosed environment, so I'm not going to lose it in the grass.

    Is it a rule that we have so we have a reason to have inspections?

    Well, if you lose it in a wall, they know who to give it back to if nobody rents a scissor lift for a few months. TAC had two stuck in at the same time, about 4 metres above the floor...

      If someone else has identical arrows and fletching to you and happens to shoot your face, then you may lose your highest value. I agree, it is highly unlikely, but many rule are introduced because the unlikely case actually happens.
      Archery's a lot like Life .... a few see it as an opportunity to score cheap points; while the rest are focused on the ends that count.

        isn't it a hold over from the fact that the equipment rules for target archery (indoor & outdoor) are written outside the individual chapters for indoor/outdoor, and so are applied to both simultaneously. That and not all indoor rounds are individual faces. The WA 25 (using the 60cm face) is often shot on a shared face.
