Submitting score sheets with no witness

Do club records officers insist that every score submitted for recording has to have been witnessed by another archer? During the Covid restrictions, we relaxed the requirement for a witness as archers were socially distancing and would like to continue this practice now. Archers are generally an honest bunch and any club records broken can be recorded as un-witnessed if required. Personally it is a bit of an annoyance if nobody else is around to witness a score just because I shoot early in the morning.

ours do, though ultimately it's up to your club as to whether they want to or not. Or to require a witness for club records but not for handicaps

We use the Archers Toolkit app to track scores which require scores to be verified BUT self verification is ok with us. Some of our newer archers usually get someone experienced to verify it for them. As for our more rabidly competitive types ... when you repeatedly hear loud and anguished wailing about being 1 or 2 points short of a required score ... you know you have an honest club!

personally its 5 points short at present!!!!! :cry:

At York our records officers have no issue with scores for gaining/improving Handicap going unwitnessed, however if is it a Club Record attempt and it beats the current record for the given round then it is required to be witnessed

Our club doesn't. They can be sumitted electronically or paper based without being counter signed.
At county level we have taken part in postal competitions with other counties.
These can also be submitted without being signed by another archer and archers can claim county records, although these are in a separate category than other records.

Our club since Covid has been more relaxed about witnesses. But club records can only be broken on days where that round has been advertised and also would have to be witnessed.
