Rules:

New Proposed Shoot

Qualified Seasons: Winter

The Random Stance Competition is shot from six different stances, which are chosen at random by the marshal in charge from a predetermined set of stances. By 'stances', it is meant either standing, kneeling, sitting, etc. The purpose of this competition is to test the ability of archers to shoot from different stances.

Stances:

  1. Standing
  2. Kneeling, on one or both knees
  3. Sitting - posterior on ground
  4. Parthian, back toward the target and toes pointed away from target, rotate torso and shoot back over your shoulder
  5. Crouching, both knees bent at approximately a ninety degree angle or as close to it as the archer can achieve. The archer only has to crouch while aiming and releasing. They may stand while nocking and drawing.
  6. Twister, feet pointing the opposite way they normally would (a right handed archer's feet would point left).

The bow should not be drawn until the archer is facing the target.

If an archer, due to a disability or injury, can not assume a stance, they may assume one of the other stances which is most similar to it with the approval of the marshal. At the decision of the marshal in charge of the competition, the archers may shoot one at a time or as groups depending upon the number of archers.

Distances:
The distance is 20 yards for Adults, 15 yards for Youth.

Ends:
There six ends of six arrows, each end shot from a different stance, six arrows from each stance. The marshal in charge randomly draws a stance from a container of the six stances, announces the stance and then removes that stance from the container. This is repeated for each end. The arrows are scored at the finish of each end of six arrows.

Target:
The roundel target is the same as a Period IKAC target, a 6cm (2.4") peg, 24cm (9.6") roundel, with a 60cm (23.6") outer circle. The peg, roundel and circle may be of any contrasting colors.

For those who wish to stop by a print shop, here is a PDF designed for large format printers with the target face pre-drawn.

Additional period style decoration may be added to the target as long as it does not make aiming or scoring difficult. Such decoration is strongly encouraged, but not required.

Scoring:
The peg is five points, the roundel is three points and the circle is one point. Arrows touching the line count as the higher score. There is a maximum possible score of 180 points.

Safety:
Handbows: The bow should not be drawn until the archer is facing the target.
Crossbows: The crossbow may be spanned before assuming the required position. The bolt shall not be put in place until the archer is facing the target.
