The aim of
the scheme is to provide an incentive to progress an archer’s standard in
practice and competition.
252 quiver badges are awards for achieving a score of 252 at different
distances in the outdoor season. Why 252? Although different bow types need to
achieve different scores to achieve the awards, the original idea for recurve
bows was to get all the archers 36 arrows within the red or gold zone of the
target. With 5 zone scoring this would mean if every arrow went in the red – it
would add up to 252.
