Badges for all!

Ok folks, the coaching squad have had and idea, and the idea is this:

We are going to start shooting regular rounds outdoors and recording scores for all members who want to take part with a view to getting a classification for every member who wants one.

The way the scheme works is, if you make 3 scores on a recognised round of a certain standard or above, you can apply for a classification which comes with a cool little badge you can stick on your quiver.

We have found the shortest and therefore most convenient round to shoot for the basic classifications, and it is a Warwick (and Short /Junior Warwick) and it’s only 4 dozen arrows at relatively short distances (40/50/60 yards) depending on which one you shoot.

We have already started this process on Saturday and have a good few classification scores already and will hopefully be having more on a regular basis until everyone who wants to gets the badge they are after.

Good luck, and good shooting everyone :)
