GWAS has been made aware of at least two attempts to fraudulently obtain monies from clubs / counties by using publicly available names and email addresses of treasurer and chairmen. With the bogus “chairman” supposedly instructing the actual treasurer to settle some fictitious account.

Members are urged to be vigilant.

The form for the submission of club affiliations for GWAS has been changed, so please can all please use the new form.

Club Affiliation Submission Form press here

As ArcheryGB are moving to an entirely electronic based system (Sport80) for affiliations starting from the 2018/19 affiliation year, GWAS has decided to change its’ affiliation process.
So for 2018/19 affiliations and onwards clubs will now send their GWAS club affiliations directly to the regional affiliations secretary (Paul Callaway)
