Now we are shooting outside, we resume the 252 and classification awards, full details of which can be found on these pages 252 and Classification.Members can partake of the 252 scheme at any club shooting session (subject to the rules outlined), whereas the Classification scheme awards can only come from scores at recognised club shoots and tournaments. To qualify for the 252 awards archers need to shoot 252 points (there are adjusted scores for longbows/compounds etc.) three times at different distances of 20,30,40,50,60,80 and 100 yds).

- The 3 dozen arrows may be shot alone, or as the first 3 dozen of a longer imperial round.
- There is no restriction on the order of distances in which the badges are obtained, (ie: a 30 yard badge may be obtained before a shorter distance is attempted. Therefore you may achieve your 60 yard badge, then go for a 20 yard badge
