From 2012, CWAA has decided to provide limited financial support to County archers whose official activities incur costs significantly in excess of those expected of a normal archer. Examples of these costs are: traveling to represent the Country at international events, compulsory squad training and purchasing Judges’ uniform. The fund will also consider contributing towards the cost of specialist equipment required by disabled archers. The fund’s size is set at the AGM as a percentage of that year’s excess income. Applications are invited in the first half of the year, and successful applications will be paid out in late summer.
