Queen's Round

Coordinator: 

Venue: 

Times:

Thursday 15:00 to 17:00

Queen's round description - Kings are known for their power, and the King’s round in archery tests this royal attribute by moving the target further and further from the archers. Archers drop out at an end if they miss the target, until only one archer remains. But what about Queens, known for their subtlety, accuracy and consistency?

This a round at 30 yards, where on each successive end the size of the target is reduced, and archers drop out if they miss the reduced target face, until only one archer remains.
