New Rules of Shooting
Archery GB have released a new Rule Book.
Changes since the October edition are as follows:
Equipment - aligning the Archery GB Rules with the World Archery Rules. The rules for Compound, Recurve, and Barebow now reference the World Archery rule book directly. These rules are helpfully printed in Appendix F of the Archery GB rule book for ease of reference. This change will make it easier for archers, as for Recurve, Compound, and Barebow the rules are the same no matter which event you are at. This means that for Archery GB events we need to use the 12.2cm ring for checking Barebows.
Additional Rounds added on page 3.13 - to include WA 50m for Barebow, Double 70m & 50m Rounds, and Barebow Match Round.
Clarification of scoring for the Vegas 300 Round - 409A (e)(iii) "Rule 404 applies for scoring, with the exception that Compound Archers will score 10 for an Inner 10 and 10 for an Inner Gold (Rule 404(a)).
Please make sure you update all copies of your rule books, particularly any electronic versions.
