Wooden wand record - 2 ends of 3 shafts from 50 yards
Butts Record - Unclaimed
Man-size Target Record (Over 6 arrows - Maximum score 18pts)
The Hunt champion’s score for field shooting (NFAS Scoring used)
Any longbow with wooden arrows and feather fletches can be used in accuracy events but they naturally favour stronger shooting

Flight Achievements: All records were achieved with fully period bows, strings and arrows.
Distances ascertained with a laser range finder with +/- 1% accuracy and a square sighting device.
Distance achievement for the Warbow Wales Lyverye Arrowe
Distance achievement for the reproduction of the Westminster Abbey Arrow
Distance achievement for the Standard Arrow (open to all longbows fitted with either a natural or synthetic string)

Warbow Wales will record the best senior shot for both the Lyverye Arrowe and Westminster Abbey Arrow for each species of period bow wood.
Where possible, the images of the bow with dimensions, sections (via a contour gauge) and draw-weight will be displayed on the Warbow Wales website. Similarly, the data for the string will also be recorded.
Over time, this will build an experimental archaeology database invaluable for bowyers and historians.
