Welcome to the new Judges area of the Archery GB website. This is an evolving area and will change and develop as we need it to.

Hopefully the layout is fairly straight forward. The J-forms are under J-Forms, the Rule book links are under Rules. You will find the information about training and re-accreditation under the tab of the same name.

We will be adding to the basics that are here, an example being the interpretations page where you will find interpretations on rules that have been discussed. Here we will also post the proposed rule changes so you will have your chance to comment on them.

You will find a miscellaneous section - for the moment, this is where you will find the 2014 National Appointments and the Uniform information.

If you get stuck, or want something that isn't here, let the committee know and we will look to get it updated as soon as we can. This is our area, to make life easier for all of us.

This will form the main channel of communication between your committee and you, the AGB Judges so please, check here regularly for updated information.

As we approach the better weather, and start to put the waterproofs away, mmm, maybe don't do that just yet, I would like to wish you all a productive judging summer, and I hope to see you all on the field somewhere.
