Disputes

The decision of the National Tournaments Committee will be final.

Archery GB

@archerygb and @agb_nt

www.archerygb.org/tournaments

Archery GB is the trading name of the Grand National Archery Society, a company limited by guarantee no. 1342150 Registered in England

To be held on 24/25June 2017 at Lilleshall.

This event is still relatively new on the calendar it is in its 3rd or 4th year we believe.

Teams consist of 3 archers. Teams can be entered in 4 bow types Compound, Recurve, Barebow and Longbow. Teams can be either ladies or gents. Thus a possible total of 8 teams per County.

The shoot lasts for 2 whole days. World record status event shot to WA rules.

Full details of the event are on the attached document. This is actually for 2016 the 2017 one is identical except for dates & costs. But a summary follows.

Day 1; WA 70/50 round. 6dozen arrows. Followed by….

Head to head all teams will progress to the Head to head rounds.

Day 2; WA 1440 round for both Ladies and gents. This means that gents will be shooting at distances 90m,70m,50 & 30m and Ladies 70m, 60m 50, & 30m

Ideally, Shropshire would like to enter teams in all 8 categories. However, the cost of entry for a team is £120, 50%   of which will be paid by Shropshire Archery Society. This means that it will cost individual archers £20 for the whole 2 days of competition.  However, we will only enter a team in a particular category if significant interest is shown.

At this stage, we are asking for expressions of interest from Shropshire Archers. We need to enter teams as soon as possible but merely expressing an interest is not a guarantee of selection. As SAS is part funding this (if 8 teams enter it will cost county £480) it has been decided that there must be an element of selection. Which will also familiarise archers new to WA events with the format.

There will be a selection shoot for this event at Long Mynd’s range on Sunday 21st May. There will not  be an entry fee. Preference will be given, when selecting teams, to those who attend this shoot.  However, if archers who cannot attend can give to Shropshire’s event organiser, Simon Nelms, a record of a score in a WA1440 event (or a York/Hereford round) attended during 2016 or 2017 then this will be taken into account. The event at Long Mynd will start at 09.00am it would be appreciated if archers could help with facing up at the distance change.

All Shropshire entries must be submitted by Simon Nelms and we need to get entries in as soon as possible to guarantee places this is a popular event.

Teams converge from all over England for this let’s make sure that we have Shropshire teams there after all it is on our doorstep! Apologies for the short notice on this but final details have only recently been confirmed by ArcheryGB.

Compound sight

Shropshire County Archery Team

My name is Ray Fisher I am the Shropshire County Archery Team Manager

The team represents Shropshire against other counties twice a year.

The first competition in the spring is against Lancashire and North Wales although the last few years North Wales have failed to produce a team and the shoot has been suspended. Hopefully this will be resurrected in 2016.

The second shoot is a five county shoot held at the end of the outdoor season in September/ October.  The counties involved are Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire.

These five counties are all West Midland Archery Society members and WMAS

competes against East Midlands each year with the top archers representing WMAS.

Several Shropshire archers make that team.

All these shoots are FITA`s with Gents shooting 90, 70, 50, 30mtrs and the Ladies shooting 70, 60, 50, 30mtrs. The team consists of Recurve, Compound and Longbow sorry no Barebow or other.

The teams will be selected from a squad. The squad and team changes all the time with some of the stalwart archers being out performed by up and coming archers so squad members must keep practicing the longer distances, nothing is taken for granted.

All Heritage shoots include long distance rounds so archers can prove their ability to shoot the required FITA distance without travelling to otherwise expensive shoots.  I do my best to monitor scores throughout the year so as to pick the strongest team but I also appreciate archers contacting me with their scores.

If you are not on the current squad contact list but feel you have the potential let me know, my details are below.
