The 252 Improvement Awards
To shoot at longer distances with confidence and avoid holding up other archers, it’s recommended for an archer to earn two 252 Improvement Awards at the required length.
These awards serve as a progression towards shooting at longer distances and reduce the need to search for missed arrows.
Robert Young – 30 Yards
Adrian Sharp – 30 Yards
Daniel Cull – 30 Yards
Mike Cooper – 80 Yards
Throughout the season, many archers have improved their scores in the Portsmouth Round.
Daniel Cull – 467
Courtenay Welsh – 361
