Braintree Bowmen 300 Awards

Braintree Bowmen 300 Awards

Indoor Shooting

Although there are GNAS classifications for indoor shooting (A through to H) as detailed in the Classifications page, unlike the outdoor classes there is no accompanying award scheme so the Braintree Bowmen 300 Award Scheme was startered to provide members with the motivation to move from beginners through to accomplished archers during the indoor season. 

  • The aim is to score 300
  • The scheme is open to all club members at every level
  • There are five levels of badge available each one bearing the club name and coloured to reflect the target face – White through to Gold.
  • White badges will provide a level of challenge for those new to archery while Gold badges require more demanding levels of skill
  • The scheme dovetails with the existing GNAS badge system and progress awards which are more geared toward outdoor shooting.

Badges are available to members after they have shot the required score twice in the indoor season and submitted their scores online or given their score pad to the records officer or one of the committee.

Each round must be shot during a different archery session. Also for a round to count it must be completed in a single session.

Due to the nature of the scheme there is no need to requalify each season: once you've won the badge it's yours to keep. Members are welcome to attempt any or all of the colours, in any order, and may hold multiple badges for different bow types.

Depending on the badge being attempted, the distance and the target face size changes according to the following tables. The score required is always 300.
