As a County we want to see all our archers making progress – whether you are fresh off a beginners course and looking for a new challenge, or if you are an experienced archer wanting a bit of fun, the 252 Awards are a great place to start. For beginners they ensure a level of consistency to gain a badge and progress to the next level, as well as a shiny reward with which to decorate your quiver. For experienced archers the chance to try a different distance, or challenge themselves to earn all the badges.
As a County we are looking at a mini-league system for those that want to submit scores so you can see how you are doing compared to others in the County – more info about that coming soon.
For now, we would encourage all archers to ask your clubs about these awards, as they are a great way to have fun and progress during the outdoor season.
The awards are received by reaching the required score at each distance, shooting 3 dozen arrows at a 122cm face:
