Waiver Information

Attention! A note for those who will be bringing children not their own…

There are TWO forms you will need to bring for each child. They both need to be signed by the child’s parent or legal guardian. ONE MUST BE NOTARIZED per Indiana law.

  1. This one needs the notarization, and will be kept with the child at all times: LINK
  2. This one is the usual Minor Waiver: LINK

PLEASE have both these forms filled out and signed/notarized where appropriate for each child you will be bringing that you are not the parent or legal guardian of. This requirement is out of our control and the children affected will not be able to attend if they are not completed properly before arrival. Thank you.

Diaper Shoot

A Dragon’s aim could be a whole lot better with a clean nappy! Once again, we are running a diaper fundraiser for local families! Low income families can have to reuse disposable diapers due to financial strains and the lack of available product at shelters. Bring in an unopened pack of disposable diapers for entry into the annual Diaper Shoot! Every Archer can enter to win a prize! We will also accept other baby hygiene items such as diaper cream or baby powder. Last BWTA we topped 3,000 total diapers. Let’s see what this year can bring!

Bow and arrows will be provided!
