The 1840s saw the second attempts at turning the recreation into a modern sport. The first Grand National Archery Society meeting was held in York in 1844 and over the next decade the extravagant and festive practices of the past were fought whittled away and the rules were standardized as the ‘York Round’ – a series of shoots at 60 yards ( 55 m), 80 yards (73 m), and 100 yards (91 m). Horace A. Ford helped to improve archery standards and pioneered new archery techniques. He won the Grand National 11 times in a row and published a highly influential guide to the sport in 1856.
