If you haven’t heard yet, our new Records Officer Darren is starting up a new 252 scheme for members.
The 252 award scheme is designed to help you practice your shooting at different distances and have your achievements recognised. This is a scheme which is widely used throughout the country to not only help beginners, but for club archers looking to improve scoring and move up to the longer distances in a structured manner, which will ultimately improve your confidence and make you a better archer.
After 6 sighters, you shoot 3 dozen (36) arrows on a 122cm face at your chosen distance. The round can be shot at 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80 or 100 yds with the aim of scoring 252 or better (that’s recurve, alternative scores apply for other bow types). If you achieve the score twice you can claim a badge.
The specific score sheets will be made available in a folder in the hut, however you can also grab a copy to print off here. Completed rounds will then be placed in the completed folder or handed to Darren directly.
