We're thrilled to have seen some great performances from the clubs that have taken part, with some fantastic scores in what have at times been challenging weather conditions. We appreciate it hasn't been possible for many clubs to be able to compete in the league so far, but hope more participants will have the opportunity to take part later in February and March.
Unfortunately, we have now had to suspended all of our winter postal events. We will review once we have a clearer picture regarding any reduction of restrictions.
While there is an exception for archers in Scotland to shoot, Scottish Archery is asking members to stay at home for the time being, as shown: https://scottisharchery.org.uk/news/latest-enhanced-level-4-guidance-board-statement
