A New Format
CMO have entered this year's OnTarget Club Competition as current holders of the title in a year which sees a new, more inclusive format.
A little while ago AGB asked participants what improvements might be made to the tournament and we suggested adding Longbow and Barebow archers to encourage more of a club-wide participation. We are pleased to see that this is exactly what they have done for this year, with a team now consisting of six archers; 2 x recurve, 2 x compound, 1 x longbow and 1 x barebow. The team must also consist of no more than three of a single gender, providing much more of a mix as opposed to previous years. Archers must be 14 years or older, so juniors are also welcome to take part.
Round One will take place in April 2019 and the OnTarget Match consists of three rounds of two-dozen arrows shot at 50m onto an 80cm face, metric scoring.
We will again be holding tryouts so that members can practice the round and put their names down for the squad for this year. We hope that many of you would like to take part, and so we will encourage you to shoot alongside the chosen team on match days so that the whole club can feel part of this competition.
