Rugby Bowmen are keen to encourage archers to develop their archery skills so we have adopted, the 252 awards scheme.
The 252 awards scheme is designed to help you practice your shooting at different distances and reward your achievements.
How it works
Shooting on a 122cm face at distances 20,30,40,50,60 yards you score as follows – Gold=9 Red=7 Blue=5 Black=3 White=1
After 6 practice shots (sighters) you continue with 36 scoring arrows the aim is as it suggests to score 252 or over, do this twice consecutively and you can claim your award. Different scores are available for different classes of bow, detailed in the table below.
Awards must be claimed in sequence ie, 20.30.40 etc,
To make a claim, two scores must be recorded on a club score card witnessed and presented to the records officer.
Jamie Docking has the score cards, which can be used as your personal record, or you can download as a pdf here.
Recurve: Olympic Recurve, button, rest, sight, stabiliser, clicker
Barebow: Olympic Recurve type bow, no sight, stabiliser or clicker
Longbow: Any wooden bow shot off the shelf, without a separate arrow rest
|Distance (Yds)||Recurve Score||Barebow Score||Longbow Score||Award|
This is for new archers (and not so new) that wish to progress through the distances, prevent people from jumping up to distances they’re not comfortable or experienced at and saves time during shooting sessions when looking for arrows that have missed the bosses.
The club appreciates that not everyone wants to be the next Olympic champion, some people just enjoy coming to the club and shooting their bow, there is nothing wrong with this, those people are just as welcome as any other member.
