Gloucestershire Archery Society was formed to support all archery clubs in Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, and Bristol.

County Team Selection

At the GAS Management Committee meeting on 27th January 2010 it was decided to establish a County ranking list.  Archers who wish to be considered are required to submit their three best scores by 21th August 2018 to John Godfrey, County Records Officer. IT IS THE TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY OF INDIVIDUAL ARCHERS WISHING TO BE CONSIDERED TO ENSURE THIS HAPPENS. Team selection will be decided by the Team Manager, CCO, County Records Officer, and two others to be co-opted as required. Attached is the form to be used to submit the scores on.  Apart from being downloadable here it will also be available (in limited supplies), at tournaments around the county.
