Penicuik Archers are proud to announce that Stages 1 & 2 of the National Series qualification events will be held at Penicuik High School Playing Fields on 21st and 22nd June 2014. Saturday’s event (Stage 1) comprises a 720 qualifying round in the morning with associated H2H competitions during the afternoon and Sunday’s event (Stage 2) will be a Fita Star WRS.
As there are only three clubs involved in staging this year's National Series qualification events, it is anticipated that Penicuik may attract a number of top archers from throughout the UK.
Spaces will be limited, and to avoid disappointment, archers are advised to enter as soon as possible.
