Re: Go/No-Go Judgement Call. How would you decide.
- I would make sure to have a good supply of waivers for the boneheads
to sign, so that WHEN they are skewered and they try to sue
for "damages", y'all can show the signed document to the judge and
have the case dismissed. Since they don't want y'all to be concerned
about their safety -- and they obviously ain't at all concerned about
it, either -- there should be no problem getting them to sign the
waiver. Once it is signed, forget about calling "hold".
Or y'all could put up a VERY LARGE sign, one at EACH side of the
range, stating that STEEL-TIPPED ARROWS are being launched and that
they pass through the area AT THEIR OWN RISK. Anyone stupid enough to
ignore the sign and cross an active archery range anyway deserves to
skewered. "And this week's winner of the Darwin Award is...."
Maybe even do both. That's my five cent's worth.
