Last competition of the winter season today, a double Frostbite. 80cm target shot from 30m.

It was ridiculous, freezing cold, high winds, rain, hail! I spent most of the time trying to work out how to keep my arrow on the rest without it getting blown off by the wind. Must have drawn and let down 3 times for each shot, so I'm exhausted!

Still fun though, mostly because of everyone constantly moaning how shit it was...

My PB is 273/360 for that round... Today I shot a 164 and a 229...

There's some weird focussing and blurring in those photos

Yeah, probably some weird mode I left on by accident

In excellently coincidental news, the estate in which I now live on is named Archery Fields.

First proper shoot with the new bow on Sunday. 40lb draw up from 32lb, it's a bit of a difference!
Managed to shoot a full session and get a fair few golds at 30yds though, so bodes well. 50yd 252 score is the next challenge.

That's 36 arrows that need to score 7+, right?

Correct, done as the first shoot of the day. Do it twice and you get a badge and move up to the next distance.
5 zone scoring, so yellow is 9, red is 7, blue is 5, black is 3, white is 1

Got my 40yd 252 at the first attempt, the 30yd took a fair few tries though. So no idea how the 50yd will go.

Possibly dumb question, but is the distance the only thing that changes? Same target, scoring etc?

Not a dumb question!

The distance, target size, target face, scoring etc... all changes.

Take a look at my indoor season for example:

The Frostbite was 30m, 80cm sized target using 10 zone scoring (X,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1. Compared to 5 zone scoring which I mentioned in another post. 9,7,5,3,1)
Vegas triple face is 20yds, 40cm sized target, 10 zone scoring but on 3 individual targets that only go from 10 down to 6. 1 arrow in each target, if you miss at least the 6 you get a zero score.

Portsmouth is 20yds, 60cm target, 10 zone scoring (but no x)
WA18 is 18m, 40cm target, 10 zone scoring
Worcester is 20yds, 40cm target, black and white target face with only 5 scoring zones.

For outdoor stuff it gets more and more complex!
https://www.burtonbridgearchers.co.uk/a ... ry/rounds/ is good example fo the type of stuff you shoot.
