Six Gold Award
Great Britain's Grand National Archery Society (GNAS), gives out an award
called the Six Gold award. The achieve this, an archer must shoot one complete
end of six arrows in the gold (9 on a York/Hereford, 9 or 10 on a Fita), at
either of the longer distances (100 yards/80 yards for a York, 80 yards/60
yards on a Hereford, 90m/70m for a Gent's Fita, 70m/60m for a Ladies Fita).
I think I got my six gold award at the end of 1991. I had failing to get it
earlier in the year; I shot five arrows in the gold, got very nervous, and was
timed off the line on my last arrow. This was the only time I have been timed
off the line, I have made sure not to make that mistake again. I had another
six-gold end which I especially remember, at the
Northern Counties Fita Star
in 1992, because it earned me a silver collection.
