252 Scheme

 

The 252 scheme is open to all archers of all abilities and bow types and is a system that is used to encourage improvement in your archery skills, the scheme is being used by a number of archery clubs in the UK.

The advantage of the scheme is that it is based on progression from one distance to the next as you are only allowed to try for the next distance once you have proved your acuracy at the current distance.

Once you have acheived a distance you will receive a certificate, if you would like to receive a badge these will cost £2tbc but you need to manually request these.

 

The Rules:

  • Six sighters to be followed immediately by three dozen scored arrows.
  • 5-zone scoring (Gold = 9, Red = 7, Blue = 5, Black = 3, White = 1) using a 122cm target face.
  • The three dozen arrows may be shot alone or as the first three dozen of a longer Imperial round.
  • Badges must be claimed in sequence.
  • Scores need to be achieved twice to qualify for the award.
  • Qualifying scores for a given distance must be shot on different days
  • To make an award claim 2 signed and witnessed score sheets needs to be submitted to Russ Guest.
