The 252 Award scheme is designed to reward achievement and progress from shorter to longer distances, with badges awarded for archers achieving the required score at distances from 20 yards up to 100 yards.
How Does It Work?
Archers may claim the award for a given distance after twice achieving a score of 252 for 3 dozen arrows
The 252 threshold applies to the recurve bow style only; different scores are required for other bow styles as shown below
The two scores must be achieved on two separate days and must use the same bow style
The three dozen arrows may be shot as a stand-alone event, or as the first three dozen of a longer imperial round
Standard imperial event rules for sighters and scoring apply and witnessed score sheets must be submitted to support the claim
Beginners must claim the awards in sequence, 20yds, 30yds, 40yds and so on
Experienced archers may start at a longer distance with agreement from the records officer, but badges for shorter distances will not be automatically awarded. (They may however be purchased
for a small fee )
The awards by bow type are as follows:
