Please note that entires for the British Target Championships open at mid-day tomorrow Monday 14 September 2015 on the Sport80 website. Please enter as soon as possible as entries are expected to fill up very fast. Senior Match to take place on Sunday 6th December 2015
Those interested in representing Wales are encouraged to submit their Expression of Interest Form if not already done so. Without this archers cannot be selected to represent Wales. The form can be found in the Document section of the WAA Website.
Nominations for Wales have to be submitted by Saturday 14 November 2015 and a FITA18 selection trial / match will hopefully be held on the last weekend of October provisionally at Pentref Bowmen, Rhondda Cynon Taff. This will be a preference selection match however for those archers from further afield (West Wales, Powys & North Wales) can submit FITA18 scores (with results sheets) achieved since August 2015. The aim is to select a team based on current performance rather than scores achieved last season (7-8 months ago!) Team places are not guaranteed via trial results or submitted scores and are at the discretion of the Selection Committee (Roger Davies, Sam Moore / Dave Evans & Griff Morgan)
2 x Gent Recurve / 2 x Gent Compound
2 x Lady Recurve / 2 x Lady Compound
All EOI submissions and submitted scores are to be sent to the WAA Senior Team Manager: email@example.com and NOT to anyone else by FRIDAY 23rd OCTOBER 2015 . All queries to be sent to this email address as well.
I look forward to hearing from you all
