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.
