Congratulations both of you, and good luck!
Another 6 gold end virgin is deflowered!
Well done Pete! shame it was only 60 yards.
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.
If you want more info on the classifications click here or feel free to ask Paul, Greg, Julie or Lloyd.
Good luck, and good shooting everyone :)
Well Done Catherine!
