    What do MB and GMB stand for/represent?

    GNAS/AGB have had a couple of decades to put right the anomalies in the handicap and classification schemes but are still apparently looking at it the fact that only 1 person 's scoring was used to determine the scores for at least 2 bowstyles says a lot about the introduction of the scheme...

    AGB Advice for returning to shooting 13/5/20

    Ben, to take your last point first, no, we back onto a football field the guidance about berms appears in 2 of their docs and mentions a height of 4m in one of them but no template is offered as to waht distance applies as that is still near as damn it 2 deg when behind a 100yd boss Kidcurry...

    What do MB and GMB stand for/represent?

    Whilst partially agreeing that the pinnacle of archery is shooting well at the longest of distances the idea that it is the be all and end all is now rather dated and to use the analogy of running, the most watched athletic event in the world is the 100m olympic final, not the 3000m steeplechase...

    AGB Advice for returning to shooting 13/5/20

    there are currently 3 versions of what is supposedly what that appear in the AGB website and they all have different guidance notes. so back to other people's assumtions about my scribblings. the refeerence to mechanical release aids appears in one of them and tbh how can it significantly...

    This genuine or pinched from a club?

    So what happens to all your old club bows when they are at the end of their life? Some of ours have been recycled to those teaching archery in schools and with scout groups etc but the rest of the stuff goes on ebay where people then pay too much for it

    AGB Advice for returning to shooting 13/5/20

    trying to minimise any contact with equipment and others has lead us to consider shooting rounds where everyone moves forwards to the next line as you would on a 2 way shoot. so for a national, short national etc everyone moves to the 10 yd line rather than peopel moving the targets and having...

    AGB - no membership refunds

    many companies and organisations have golf societies, which then book a golf course for their day out. That makes the game playable for nearly anyone. Want to play on a course that would cost you £2k a year membership plus green fees? about a tenner a member of your GS as long as you dont mind...

    instructions prior to first clout shoot.

    I love it because you dont have a target face to distract you. It is more about getting your body into line and then getting a decent release and having a large object in front of you to distract you from doing this properly can be a disadvantage

    3m to 5m shooting not the panacea to the pandemic

    you also need to elevate the bow to shoot 90m so you get a different feel compared to short ranges. I have to shoot at a boss that is on the ground aat 20m so my shoulders are in a totally different place geometrically and I feel permanently "tucked up" compared to the normal for distance...

    AGB - no membership refunds

    Are you really paying £50/yr when the affiliations cost the club £52 or is that £50 on top of your affiliations? many clubs have a green fee system where members pay a lower annual subs but then pay £x per shoot. That is a system that doesnt take into account establishment costs such as rent or...

    AGB - no membership refunds

    an organisation that people are forced to fund making loans of the money they have picked out of the pockets of the very same people isnt a particularly generous offer. When the National Pistol Associationwas formed because the nRA and NSRA were not catering for the needs of more than half of...

    "Beat The Virus" Online Leagues

    stating that the AGB insurance doesnt cover it is a red herring, like the Chief Constable saying that they arent currently going through people's shopping trollies to check for non essential items. It is nothing to do with them, not covered by an legislation and beyond thier powers AGB may have...

    AGB - no membership refunds

    Of course they arent going to refund money they spent before they received, they arent in a position to afford to. more worrying is what will happen with mosy clubs membership though, I estimate we will lose 50% of our members and having cancelled the beginners courses will find it difficult to...

    "Beat The Virus" Online Leagues

    If someone has their own insurance there is nothing for AGB to say on the matter. If they have had a number of enquiries have they then checked their database to see if it was an AGB member registered at that address and then did they send a helicopter over to see if it was the same person...

    "Beat The Virus" Online Leagues

    shot in the garden using a scaled down target to do a LMG at 20m. Got my wife to point the leaf blower at me to make it more like our field. Did avergarely so pleased that there was no advantage to using a shorter distance. However, I cant see how to submit scores anywhere, please enlighten me
