Yards Versus Meters

As I am sure you are all aware yards and meters are both units of measure for distances; and that they are slightly different. 1 yard is about 10% shorter than a meter which makes ranging things a bit different for each. Both are used in archery for different styles of shooting.

At the SPAC outdoor range our field is marked in meters with the distances on metal signs along the sides. However many shooters prefer to use yards, therefore along the left hand side of the range (south side) we have butts set up at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 yards. The butts on the right side of the range the butts are set up in meters at standard FITA distances.

Please do not move the butts which have been set up along the left side of the range.
