Surely the overshoot and side safety zones discussed in the article are only (a little more than) what AGB target archers have (150 yds from shooting line to end of safety zone for bows shot with mechanical release aid)

So, we've just finished a beginners course and some of the beginners want to join the club.
So, do we charge them the pro-rata ?26 AGB fees for September and then next week ask them for another ?52 AGB for 2018-19?
Do we charge them the full AGB fee for 2018-19 but tell them to go away until...
