252 Takes Off!
It’s great to see the enthusiasm for this improvement scheme, it’s created quite a buzz!
Several of you have already achieved three qualifying scores so you’ll be pleased to know, the badges have arrived! When we’ve worked out how we’ll dish them out we’ll start getting them out there, so a little patience and your first award will be coming your way.
There have been some questions about the “shoot them in sequence” bit. The answer on that is that of course, it makes sense to shoot them in sequence, that’s sort of the idea (and the recommended approach), to help you work along a defined path of development and achievement. However, if you want to shoot them out of sequence, maybe you find yourself shooting a regular round and want to use the score of the first three dozen as a 252 score, that’s fine – it’s about developing at your pace flow.
The badge design has been tweaked and you can see the new/final design and some other notes on the 252 page.
Congratulations to all those who’ve already qualified for a badge and here’s wishing success for all of you heading toward your first award!
