252 Rounds

Ever wondered whether you can shoot longer distances accurately

The 252 scheme is designed to help you practice your shooting at different distances and recognise your achievements.

After 6 sighters you shoot 3 dozen arrows on a 122cm face at your chosen distance.

The round can shot at 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80, or 100yds with the aim of scoring 252 or better (alternative scores apply for other bow types),
If you achieve the score you can claim your badge and progress to the next distance.

It is an award scheme similar to those in use at many archery clubs in the UK and applies to all archers irrespective of age, ability or bow type (score differ by bow type)

• Six sighters to be followed by three dozen scored arrows.
• 5-zone scoring ( 9,7,5,3,1) using a 122cm target face.
• The dozen arrows may be shot alone or as the first three dozen of a longer imperial round.
• Badges must be claimed in sequence and before progressing distances.
• Two scores successful scores need to complete at each distance before progressing to next distance
• To make an award claim a signed and witnessed score sheet needs to be submitted to the club’s Records Officer.
