    What the rule/etiquette on saving lanes?
    4/5, 4 out of 5, reviewed May 28, 2019
    I went up with my wife on Mon am (Memorial day) some young kid was at lane 4. He was the only one there. When we were setting up he proceeded to tell me I couldn't use the lane because he was saving it for his 6 friend who were coming later. What is the rules/Etiquette on this? I left because I didn't want problems but I was pretty pissed... We drove from Portland. Any advice would be helpful.

      Official Response
      It is first come first serve. Primary courtesy is to ask if those already there will share the lane. If they don’t wish to, it’s common to wait or go to another lane. Usually some one will be willing to share a lane. On busy days it’s common to be onsite before sun up if you want first pick. Courtesy goes along way, but some like to shoot privately and it’s best to let them if they do not with to share.

      Understandable... I had it happen once before on lane one. The guy told me he was teaching his son and preferred to shoot alone. Totally acceptable. I just found it pretty off putting this guy was saving all of lane four both bench for people who werent even there and from what I know lane four is made for two parties anyways

      Yes virtually all of the lanes are suitable for multiple parties. It’s a common occurrence for folks to get there early and hold a lane for a group. We at Trash No Land and Oregon Department of Foresty understand these are a finite resource and hope to add additional lanes in times to come so there are more opportunities for more recreational shooters.

      so are you saying lane four is only one lane that has two benches? It is designed for one party? I checked the ODFW website which states it is intended for two parties...
    5. Reno
      They all were designed to accommodate as many as possible. However without a Range Officer, these lanes solely rely on the users to be courteous to each other. The best thing to do if a person or party is unwilling to share the lane is to wait for a turn or go to another lane. There is no way to enforce it either way. We rely on everyone to be kind and share when possible.
