Club Competition Summer 2015 – Round 4

200px-Archery_Target_80cmThe next round of the summer club competition will be held tonight. We will be shooting a Metric II, which is three dozen arrows at 60m and 3 dozen arrows at 50m,  with ten-zone scoring on a 122cm face. There will be a Metric V which is three dozen arrows at 30m and 3 dozen arrows at 20m for Juniors to shoot. Ten-zone scoring also applies.

Thurs 9th July, Sun 12th July, Tues 14th July

If you can assist in putting the targets out it would help if you can be there a little early so that we can make the best of the daylight.

Club Competition 2015 – Round 3

200px-Archery_Target_80cmThe next round of the club competition will be a Short Metric I, i.e. 3 dozen arrows at 50m, 3 dozen arrows at 30m, on an 80cm face with ten-zone scoring. This will be shot on Thursday 11th June, Tuesday 16th June and Thursday 18th June.

Note: Due to a clash with the Kestrels American being shot on Sunday 14th June, unfortunately there will not be an opportunity to shoot this round on a Sunday.

The club is planning to be at Biggleswade on Sunday 14th June for the Kestrels shoot.

Club Competition Round 2 – new date

200px-Archery_Target_80cmThe club competition second round has been delayed one week to avoid a clash with the Presidents and Pairs on 22nd June. The round will not be shot on Thursday 26th June, Sunday 29th June and Tuesday 1st July.

  • Long Metric 2 (3 dozen at 60m + 3 dozen at 50m)
  • Short Metric 2 ((3 dozen at 50m + 3 dozen at 40m)

This will be a Metric Round (6 dozen arrows) with ten-zone metric scoring and will make use of all available daylight, so any help with setting up the field before the round would be much appreciated.

2013 Outdoor Competiion Round 5

200px-Archery_Target_80cmRound five of the club outdoor competition will be Sunday 1st, Tuesday 3rd and Thursday 5th September. The round will be a metric three dozen – i.e. 3 dozen arrows shot at a distance of 30m at an 80cm face with ten-zone scoring.

This is the final round of this summer’s competition, and is a short round due to the limited daylight available in the evenings. Any help getting the range set up promptly, especially on Tuesday and Thursday is much appreciated.

2013 Outdoor Competition – Round 4

200px-Archery_Target_80cmThe next round of the club outdoor competition will be a Short Metric I, which is 3 dozen arows at 50m and 3 dozen at 30m, all on 80cm targets. This will be shot in sixes, with one end of 6 sighters, using ten-zone scoring.

Dates will be confirmed in the near future, but the round cannot be shot on 4th August as previously notified as we will be at the County Championships.

Any help in getting the range set up will be much appreciated as we will be trying to maximise the use of daylight.

2013 Outdoor Competition – Round 3

200px-Archery_Target_80cmRound 3 of the club outdoor competition will be on Tuesday 9th, Thursday 11th and Sunday 14th July and will be a Metric IV – that’s three dozen arrows at 40 metres and three dozen at 30 metres at a full-sized face. Arrows will be shot in sixes, but we will not be timing ends. Scoring is ten-zone, and Xs will be counted.

Any help in getting the targets set up promptly would be greatly appreciated. Please try and arrive promptly as this is a six-dozen round and we need to make the most of the available evening daylight.

A reminder also that when we have lost arrows, can everyone help search as it helps keep the shoot moving along.

Club Outdoor Competition 2013 – Round 2: Warwick

Gold = 9, Red = 7, Blue = 5, Black = 3, White = 1
Five Zone Scoring – Gold 9, Red 7, Blue 5, Black 3, White 1

The 2nd round of the Club Outdoor competition will begin on Sunday 2nd June with alternate shooting opportunities on Tues 4th and Thur 6th June, and will be a Warwick – that’s four dozen arrows – 2 dozen at 60 yards and 2 dozen at 50yards The round (four dozen arrows) will be eligible for a GNAS handicap.

Recurve Gentlemen can reach 3rd Class with a score of 222 and a 2nd class with 297, and Recurve Ladies can reach 3rd class with a score of 146, and a 2nd Class with 233. Gents Compound 3rd Class is 312 and 2nd class is 370, and Ladies 3rd class with 243 and a 2nd class with 305.

Help in getting the range set up promptly on Tuesday and Thursday is much appreciated. The evening shoots will start promptly to make the most of the daylight.

Outdoor Competition 2013

200px-Archery_Target_80cmThe Club Outdoor competition will begin on Sunday 5th May with alternate shooting opportunities on Tues 7th and Thur 9th May, and will be a shortened FITA 50 – that’s four dozen arrows shot at a single distance of 50m at an 80cm metric target. The full FITA 50 may be shot on Sunday when there is sufficient daylight, but it is thought that there will not be enough daylight to shoot six dozen arrows in one of the evening sessions – therefore only the first four dozen arrows will count for the club competition.  The full round (six dozen arrows) will be eligible for a GNAS handicap.

Archers are asked to cross-score (i.e score each other’s arrows) and to check the arithmetic before signing the score-sheets at the end. Recurve Gentlemen can reach 3rd Class with a score of 225, and Recurve Ladies can reach 3rd class with a score of 129, and a 2nd Class with 240. Gents Compound 3rd Class is 381.

Help in getting the range set up promptly on Tuesday and Thursday is much appreciated, as the earlier shooting starts the more daylight we will have.
