Manly Warringah Field Archers Club Rules

Common sense and an approach to leaving the Club and reserve area in a better state than you found it, will go a long way to ensuring the Club’s ability to continue to prosper in this location and improve the archery experience for all concerned.

The Club rules have been established to ensure the safety of all members, the general public and to ensure the preservation of the JJ Melbourne Hills Reserve’s special environment.

Failure to comply with these rules may result in loss of membership rights.

The principal Club rules are located on a large notice board located on the south wall of the club house.

The rules include:
