CLUB CODE OF CONDUCT
1) All members are required, at the point of joining the club, to provide the club secretary with personal information as requested,
including Shotgun Certificate details, and the member must agree to this information being stored for exclusive use by the club.
REASON: To satisfy legal requirements regarding the clubs responsibility for checking shotgun certificates.
2) All members must bring their Shotgun Certificate along with them to each and every shoot. Unless the legal requirements are met
in this regard we cannot allow a person to buy ammunition or shoot.
REASON: Legal requirement.
3) Shooters are encouraged to use the cartridges sold by the club. Shooters who choose to use their own cartridges should ensure
that they have FIBRE WADS (Very strict rule!) and a maximum of 28grams of shot in no greater than shot-size 7.
REASON: To minimise our environmental impact and to comply with generally accepted competition regulations.
4) Members are asked to arrive early on shoot days, in order to assist in setting up the ground, and to stay until the end of shooting
to clear away the ground afterwards. In order to qualify for prizes, which are presented right at the end of the day, shooters must
be present when the prizes are being awarded.
REASON: To spread the workload of running the club as widely as possible.
5) The general rules that we follow for shooting DTL and the administration of competitions will be as defined by the CPSA in
their "Technical rules for DTL" booklet.
REASON: To ensure consistency, as far as is desirable, with other DTL shoots.
6) Only club members are eligible to win any of our club trophies. In situations where a guest shooter wins a trophy shoot, they will
be presented with a cash alternative, with the trophy being presented to the highest scoring club member.
REASON: To ensure the security of our much valued trophies.
7) Members are asked to ensure that their mobile phones are turned off when shooting is in progress.
REASON: Phones are a distraction to shooters and can be dangerous.
8) The scorer is in sole control of the line when shooting is in progress and has the final say on all matters to do with safety, etiquette
and competition rules. All shooters are obliged to follow the scorer's instructions.
REASON: Democracy on a shooting line does not work.
