Rules for SSAC - 16D Falling Leaves

The Scorekeeper last approved scores for this shoot on: 12/6/16

Shoot Begins: Thursday, September 1, 2016
Shoot Ends: Wednesday, November 30, 2016
Scores must be Submitted by: Wednesday, December 7, 2016 and within 30 days of being shot.


A shoot inspired by the leaves falling outside my windows. The spirit of this shoot is to move your aim point with each and every arrow.

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 based on a 40cm FITA which has been cut into quarters, each quarter representing a leaf. The leaves are then mounted on a large piece of cardboard as shown below and numbered such that the numbers are easy to read from the shooting line. The leaves should be spaced about 1/2" from each other. The background cardboard must not be white so that it is easy to see the square leaves. And yes the leaves are all pointed so the highest points are surrounded by the zero, with the risk comes the reward (or not). If your local target backstop can not handle the vertical nature of this target you may turn it horizontal as needed.

There are two ends. Both ends are shot from 25 yards.

For the Stationary end the leaves are still attached to the tree, you are just picking leaves and shooting them. You have 8 arrows untimed, however you must aim at each leaf in order with each successive arrow, first arrow shot at #1, second arrows shot at #2, start over at the top with your fifth arrow shot at #1.

For the Falling end the leaves are now falling, you must shoot them before they hit the ground. You may have a maximum of 12 arrows in your quiver to start. You will have 5 seconds to shoot at each leave in order, twice though. The marshal will call the time as follows(called on each second): Archers make ready, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Loose, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, HOLD! Archers may only shoot at the leaf being called, and may start with one of their 12 arrows on the string.

Scoring is almost the same as if the target where whole, yellow - 5, red - 4, blue - 3, black - 2, all of the white (outside the rings as well) - 1, background - 0. While the archer must make every attempt to aim at and hit the correct leaf with each arrow, should they get so lucky as to hit another leaf the arrow will still score normally. As the spirit of this shoot is to "move you aim point with each and every arrow" archers found to be taking advantage of this last rule and not attempting to switch their aim should have their entire score disqualified. (I.E. play nice and have fun!!)
