No arrow may be nocked to a bow until everyone is behind the firing line. (An arrow is nocked when it is clipped onto the bowstring and resting on the arrow rest).
No persons are allowed to cross the firing line while shooting is in progress.
Turning around (away from the targets) while holding a nocked bow is forbidden.
All members should be alert and aware to the risk of someone crossing the firing line, and are responsible for raising the alarm if necessary.
If anyone shouts "Don't shoot", "Stop shooting", "Cease fire" etc, everyone on the line must lower their bow immediately and wait for an experienced member to allow them to resume firing.
When arrows are being removed from a target everyone must stand to one side of the target.
No one is allowed to begin collecting their arrows until collect is called by an experienced member.
