National Postal Shoot
Sometimes you'll hear a Trad shooter say "I wanded that one" and any sane person might have cause to pause. What they just did was split the difference and aimed at the longest part of the target.
The Postal Shoot or "Wand" is traditionaly held in the off season from a date in November to some time in February, when walking any distance is an unbearable thought and archery moves to practice ranges.
Held with good cheer, archers shoot 50 arrows consecutively. A maximum of two arrows per end. After each end you score and change distance. In total you must shoot ten arrows at each distance of 10mts, 15mts, 20mts, 25mts and 30mts. You can change to any other distance after each shot.
Your target is a 50mm wide x 1mtr long "Wand" placed vertically on any boss, any Archery Target Boss.....not your boss from work.
Only open to fully financial TAA members, the rules of shoot and score card are available here to download.
