Fakenham Bowmen is keen to encourage all members to develop their abilities so we have adopted the 252 Award Scheme.
The 252 award scheme 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 yards with the aim of scoring 252 or better (alternative scores apply for other bow types, see table below). If you achieve the score twice you can claim a badge.
This award is primarily for beginners and will be free for them to enter, normally the beginner is only someone who has started shooting for that outdoor season only, but for this award we will be classing beginners as anyone who started in any of last years last years induction courses.
Experienced members of the club is welcome to shoot and claim an award for a small charge of just £2 per badge.
The awards and scores are as follows:
