This is a challenge for members of Gwynedd Bowmen. It is open to visiting archers under the rules below.
It is an outdoor challenge only.
The recurve challenge is to score 252 points with 36 arrows at set distances. For compound archers, the
required score is 282. For barebow and longbow, the table gives required scores at each distance.
Target face sizes are as set out in that table. Imperial Scoring 9,7,5,3,1, is to be used at all distances
which are as follows, - each distance has a colour badge award:-
20yds - Green 30yds - White 40yds- Black 50yds - Blue 60yds- Red 80yds - Gold 100yds - Purple
1. The score set out in the table or more to be achieved from 3 dozen arrows, (six ends of six arrows).
2. Six sighters may be shot immediately before commencing the round.
3. The 3 dozen arrows may only be shot as a specific 252 challenge round, or as the first 3 dozen of a
longer imperial round.
4. There is no restriction on the order in which badges are obtained, i.e. - you may achieve a 60 yard
badge, and then go for a 20 yard badge.
5. You may achieve the badge of a particular colour once, regardless of bowstyle. Nevertheless, your
score and bowstyle will be recorded, and you may shoot the rounds again after gaining the badge in order
to achieve better scores, and to record scores under different bowstyles.

the rules of that scheme. A separate score sheet for that scheme must also be completed and submitted
for the sake of good order.
