• The Director of shooting shall be advised if an archer, when drawing back the string of his bow uses any technique which, in the opinion of the judges, could allow the arrow, if accidentally released, to fly beyond a safety zone. If the archer persists in using such a technique, he shall, in the interest of safety, be asked by the Games Director or DOS to stop shooting immediately and to leave the field. Archers must draw back with the arrow pointed at the target, not at the sky
