The object is to shoot a thin vertical target consisting of either an actual wand, or a suitable substitute.
Please read the SSAC General Rules, as these apply to all SSAC shoots. Below are the additional rules for this specific shoot.
The target is a length of 1x2 (actual scoring width 3/4") with a marked 3' long scoring area OR a 3'x3/4" piece of contrasting tape on a target face or butt.
If using the wooden wand, it should be placed 3 feet in front of any backstop system used to prevent any confusion over canted arrows leaning against the wand.
The wooden wands need to be secured someway, preferably a portable hole, or actually driven into the ground. They should have a clearly defined scoring area 3' in length.
The tape substitutes should be clearly marked as 3' long and 3/4" wide.
Running the Shoot:
The wand shoot starts at 15 yds for adults. 3 arrows are shot each round. A minimum of 1 hit is required to advance to the next range.
Adult Ranges are 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, and 40 yds.
Youth Ranges are 10, 10, 15, 15, 20, and 20 yds.
1 Point is scored for each wand strike within the marked 3' scoring area.
For wand substitutes, such as tape, cutting the tape is required. For wooden wands, a visual brush is acceptable (ie. someone actually saw it connect with the wand on the way by.)
A Bonus of 1 point for each successfully completed end is also awarded.
A perfect score would be: 24 points
