    I’m sure it’s to do with the insurance.

    We would like to arrange ours the other way (shortest to the right) as there’s a football / cricket field to the left of our range and it would give us better view of people walking onto the range to collect stray balls.
    That's a new rule to me so probably worth looking up. On competitions I have been to where different distances are shot it is usually the other way round, longer to the left and shorter to the right.

    Appendices C & D cover range layout (target distances as required) and independent shooting (25m gap) but I can't find anything else.

    Thinking about that, the range approval/inspection system that was put in place recently may have something to do with that. I know that we had to make some changes that make no real sense in relation to our field and indoor hall just to get approval. If you only did a postal application and approval, it could be that someone put that in as part of the application and so you have to stick to it. Alternatively, it may have come back as a condition after the application was reviewed by AGB.

    Nope... found nothing. Even the latest updates have nothing. Can you reference it please?
    An archers only opponent is his mind.

    I love the way people either make these things up as they go along, or someone misunderstands something and before you know it, its being quoted as absolute fact.
    eg "a beginners course must be six two hour lessons", "beginners can only use lightweight club bows", "beginners can only use recurve bows", "if one person on the shooting line has a lapsed membership, no one is insured to shoot"
    and the people repeating them always state "insurance" as being the reason.

    The range approval/inspection system may well be where I got this from, it may have been communicated badly or just miss understood by me.
