Upcoming spring and summer shooting. This shoot is also designed so that it can be done indoors if need be, depending upon range limitations.
The shoot – The object is to hit the target (see below) with at least 4 shafts. Archers start at 10 yards. IF at least 4 shafts have hit the target/disc, the archer moves back 5 yards and shoots 6 shafts at the new distance. After shooting 6 arrows at the distance, if at least 4 shafts hit the target the archer moves back 5 more yards until less than 4 shafts hit the target/disc. At that point the round ends and the score is the LAST distance at which at least 4 shafts hit the target/disc. Thus the round continues in this fashion – at 10 yards, archer gets 4 hits, moves back to 15 yards, gets 5 hits, moves back to 20 yards, and continues until LESS THAN 4 shafts hit the target/disc. Archers will shoot 6 shafts at each distance. All archers are encouraged, but not required, to continue shooting the longer distances for practice until the round for everyone has ended.
Once a round is started it must be shot in continuum, i.e. no ranging or practice shafts between distances. If an archer has been successful out to 30 yards, they may NOT come back at a later date/time and resume the round at 35 yards. Each round MUST start at 10 yards.
At 10 yards, the entire 40 cm target face is a scoring zone (all 10 rings). At each 5 yard move back the target scoring surface reduces one ring (each color has two rings in it). Thus the farthest distance will be 55 yards shooting for the centermost ring. Should any archer reach that distance successfully and require additional move backs, they will continue in 5 yard increments shooting at the center most ring for score.
Target - 40 cm FITA 4 color face
End – 6 shafts
Round – Number of ends determined by scoring. ALL ROUNDS MUST START AT 10 YARDS.
Scoring – Score is the DISTANCE at which the archer last hit the target with at least 4 shafts. Archers must record the total number of shafts scoring per round. This value will be used if a tie breaker is required (see below).
Example: Archer scores 4 hits at 10 yards. Archer scores 5 hits at 15 yards. Archers scores 5 hits at 20 yards. Archers scores 2 hits at 25 yards. Score for that round is 20, total shaft hit count is 14. (The recorded score is the LAST DISTANCE the archer successfully hit the disc 4 times. The shaft count is as follows: 10 yards – 4, 15 yards – 5, 20 yards – 5, total - 14. No count at 25 yards. ) After missing at 25 yards, the archer must start a new round at 10 yards.
Tie BreakersFor final determination of winners, ties will be broken in the following order:
1. Total number of shafts that scored per round.
2. Number of rounds each archer shot at the range causing the tie.
3. Flip of the proverbial coin.
