EMAS Tournaments in 2021

EMAS Tournaments in 2021

Information for all archers in the EMAS region from EMAS Tournament Advisor, Lynn Fisher…

“Welcome back to archery!

You will be interested to know, that County Team Managers, Club Tournament Organisers hosting EMAS shoots, EMAS Chairman and myself have been working behind the scenes in consultation together. We have looked at and discussed at great length the feasibility of staging EMAS Tournaments for 2021 under the AGB regulations for returning to archery/competitions.

Outcome: Tournaments will go ahead for 2021. There will be some changes to format of the Junior teams inter-counties and the Senior teams inter-counties tournaments. Hopefully, if by September, we are back to some normality, then these changes may not happen. Information will be released nearer the time when we have more details from AGB.

Single and Double One Way Imperial Clout.
Tassel and UK Record Status.
Please head to The Clout Collective web site for ENTRY form – it is filling up already.

Please note that the Inter-counties Teams Clout should have taken place in March 2021, however, a decision was taken to postpone until towards the end of the year.

If you are an archer within the EMAS Region and have already/ or intend entering TCC clout shoot, it may be wise to let your County Team Manager know, especially if you wish to be considered for selection to represent your county. It is not the responsibility of TCC to inform County Team Managers that you have entered their competition.

Due to lockdown restrictions many archers have been denied the chance to shoot/practise. Therefore selection for County teams may be done differently to the norm this year (as a one off for instance). To make it a little easier for County Team Managers to carry out their job, under these difficult circumstances, please contact them and let them know you would like to be considered for selection. This is especially important if you are a Junior, as ages and bow styles will have more of an impact on the organisation of the Junior event under present circumstances.

I hope that archers within the EMAS Region, will support the efforts of Club Tournament Organisers hosting these shoots. Every effort will be made to make your time at the shoot covid safe by adhering to the regulations/guidelines of AGB.

Information can also be found on ArcheryGB and Sport80 calendars.

Thanking you in advance for your support and participation.

EMAS Tournament Advisor.

Northants v Beds Inter-county ‘Covid’ Postal Match

Northants v Beds Inter-county ‘Covid’ Postal Match

Dear All,

As the heading suggests, in collaboration with Bedfordshire, we have arranged a socially distanced intercounty match. Details as follows.

We are hoping that all NCAS clubs and archers will be able to take part.

1. Round to be shot: Short Metric, including all the junior rounds (M1, M2, M3, M4, M5).

2. Eligible archers: All genders and ages. If a junior please give your age and round/distance shot.

3. Bow Styles: All

4. When to be shot: All scores to be in by 2nd November 2020

5. How round is to be shot: We realise that with 6 dozen arrows to be shot that may well take a while, with the night’s drawing in, possibly not all 6 dozen can be shot on the same day. We ask that if you cannot complete the 6 dozen at one session, please shoot them in 2 sets of 3 over 2 sessions if needed (not just one dozen per session)

6. Record all the scores as you would normally, X`s, 10`s and so on. Please submit the final score totals only (not each individual arrow value) in the normal format, including the following information. Archer, Gender. Club. Bow Style. Senior/Junior (if junior age and which round shot). Example: J Doe. Female. Middle Earth. Longbow. Senior. X 59. 10 13. Score 720.

7. All the scores will be on trust. We will be watching you.

8. We are at the moment working on a collating system for the scores. When that is up and running there will be information as to how you can submit the scores.

Here’s another cheeky question if any club can offer up targets slots for archers to shoot this would be great. I would pimp Long Buckby AC out but we’ve got no access for the next 10 days to do with the refurb of car park.

If clubs don’t want to offer not a problem I also understand this too.

If the clubs could let me know asap if they will be taking part and we can expect scores from your archers. Either via the club county rep or directly to me.

NCAS County Team Captain

Cancelled Shoots…

Due to Archery GB advising that all archery in the UK is postponed for the foreseeable future. Please expect a number of organised club events and open shoots due to take place within the next few months to be cancelled.

Today, Kettering Archers have confirmed that both the Angela Bray Memorial Clout on 19th April, and the NCAS 1st Caswell on the 3rd May which they are hosting, are both cancelled. The club hope to run the Angela Bray Memorial Clout later in the year if possible.
