  • 252 Badge Award Scheme

         We all know that there is a large mental aspect to Archery, so if you can line up on a Club Night or at a tournament knowing that you can score 252 at a chosen distance, then you should be able to feel confident in your ability to shoot a good round regardless of how little experience you may have.

     

    How it Works.

    You get 6 sighter arrows
    You shoot 3 dozen arrows on a 122cm face at your chosen distance.
    You score the round using the 5 zone scoring method [so 9 for a gold, 7 for a red etc]
    For each round that you achieve the required score or better (see Table below) you can claim a badge that you can then proudly display.
    The aim of the round is to get a score of 252 or better [there are adjusted target scores for longbowmen and barebow/(flatbow) archers - see below] – keep in mind that the maximum score for 36 arrows when using 5 zone scoring is 324, so achieving a score of 252 (an average of 7 per arrow) even at the shorter distances is quite a challenge.
    Your chosen round can be shot at the following distances...
    20 yds, 30 yds, 40 yds, 50yds, 60 yds, 80yds & 100yds.
    ......commencing initially at the shortest distance that you feel comfortable with shooting..and progressing to the next longer distance after each badge has been claimed. Subject to availability, 252 Badges will be awarded as soon as possible after each claim has been made, so you won't have to wait until the Annual Presentation Dinner to receive your badge(s).

     

    Distance Award Recurve Compound Longbow Barebow
    20 252 280 164 189
    30 252 280 164 189
    40 252 280 164 189
    50 252 280 164 189
    60 252 280 164 189
    80 252 280 126 164
    100 252 280 101 139

     

    Note: Colour of Badges may vary to the above.

    As the 252 badges have to be purchased by the Club, each successful claimant will be charged just £2 for each badge claimed.

    The 252 Scheme is not designed to take people away from shooting the recognised rounds on Club Nights, and it will not count towards your handicap or classification. It is purely designed to be both fun and to help members gain confidence in shooting longer distances, whilst at the same time recognising their achievement with the award of a badge. You can shoot a 252 round at any time of your own choosing..the only exception being a Friday Club Night. The only stipulation is that another member must record your score and sign your 252 score sheet as Target Captain.

    I hope that all members will give the 252 Scheme their support and enjoy the experience. A number of our members have already started claiming their medals and details of all successful claimants can now be viewed on our website

    If you have any queries and/or would like to participate in the 252 Scheme please contact ...
