Tri-Counties Match – 3rd October

Hi all archers,

Just a note to say we have 1 more outdoor inter-county match which has just been finalised, the Tri-county match between Beds, Bucks, and Northants.

The round and team size are as follows.

The round will be a Western for all seniors with age-appropriate junior Westerns, so 8 dozen arrows on a 122 com face at:

Western Seniors 60 & 50 yards
Short Western Juniors U16 50 & 40 yards
Junior Western Juniors U14 40 & 30 yards
Short Junior Western Juniors U12 30 & 20 yards

Ages above are junior gents, for junior girls allow another 2 years for each category.

We are proposing teams as follows:

5 Recurve
3 Compound
3 Barebow
3 Longbow
3 Juniors (any bow type)

I have already approached your club selectors for names and will be looking to use any scores that have already been put in at the recent matches & scores from the county champs.

County Team Captain
