Archers Beware, Rule 307 Applies, No Exceptions in GWAS Region.

Please note that Rule 307 will be enforced with no exceptions in the GWAS Region from the start of 2015.

At the recent GWAS Committee meeting there was discussion about the dress standard at tournaments.

As a result we the GWAS Judges have been instructed to ensure that the Rules of Shooting are being followed.

This means that it is being left to us to enforce the clothing rule 307.


As of January 2015, if any archer turns up in the wrong clothing to a Record Status, Regional or

County Tournament then they MUST be asked to change or they cannot shoot NO EXCEPTIONS.
