The 252 award is designed to help you practice your shooting at different distances and recognise your achievements. After 6 sighters, you shoot 3 dozen arrows on a 122cm face at your chosen distance. The round can be shot at 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80 or 100 yds with the aim of scoring 252 or better (alternative scores apply for other bow types). If you achieve the score twice you can claim a certificate. You also have the option to purchase an enamelled badge. (The club Captain will send emails about purchases of badges prior to the prize giving, while you are free to purchase badges yourself at any time we try to negotiate discounts through bulk purchases on behalf of members wherever possible.)
It is an award scheme in use at many archery clubs in the UK and applies to all archers, irrespective of age, ability or bow type (scores differ by bow type).
The awards are as follows:
|Distance (yds)||Award||Recurve score||Compound score||Longbow score||Barebow score|
