The 252 award is designed to help you practise your shooting at different distances and recognise your achievements. After 6 sighters, 3 dozen arrows are shot on a 122cm face at a chosen distance. The round can be shot at 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80 or 100 yards with the aim of scoring 252 or better from a maximum of 324 (alternative scores apply for other bow types than recurve). If you achieve the score twice you can claim a sticker. It is an award scheme in use at many archery clubs in the UK and applies to all archers, irrespective of age, ability or bow type (scores differ by bowtype).
