New 200 Yard Flag Rule

Per Chief Range Officer Franco Scarpino:

With the completion of the new 200 yard sash pit we are introducing a revision to the 200 yard flag usage as outlined below do to a concern someone newly arriving at the line may not see anyone downrange at 200 yards and believe the lights were left on by mistake.

Revised Procedure:

  • When calling for a cold range to service 200 yard pit targets.

  • Sound the buzzer three times.

  • Turn on the red warning lights.

  • If going to 200 yards place the 200 yard range flag on the baffle support pole as always.

    • This indicates persons are at 200 yards.

  • If you go into the “sash pit” there is a new red flag which should be installed into a pipe at the top of the pit stairs.

    • This will indicate someone is in the pit.

  • When done in the pit remove the flag back to it’s storage location.

  • Remove the flag on the baffle pole.

  • Sound the buzzer three times.

  • Turn off the warning lights.

This is in addition to the flag placed up range just in front of the firing line.
