Qualified Seasons: Summer, Winter

There is an Arabic version of the Triangle Target which was based on an Oriental target, which also represented a warrior on horseback. But, unlike the Triangle, it is based upon two circular disks which represented the shield and the head. In the Arabic original which was used as a form of practice, the target was placed at just under the maximum cast of the bow. The archer practiced at this target using five arrows until he could hit the disk representing the shield without missing a single shot. Then he advanced to shooting at the disk representing the head of the warrior until he could hit it with all five arrows without missing. The size of the head disk was one span or about nine inches and the shield was three spans or about twenty-seven inches. (From 'Arab Archery' by Robert Elmer and Nabih Amin Faris.)

Please read the SSAC General Rules, as these apply to all SSAC shoots. Below are the additional rules for this specific shoot.

For purposes of the SSAC the original version is slightly modified by the addition of a third disk representing the horse and the addition of a visor slot/disk on the head. There are three untimed ends of six arrows, shot at three different distances. Both handbows and crossbows may participate in the shooting at the same time. However, handbows and crossbows compete in separate divisions as per the SSAC rules.

As this is being run as a Winter Shoot the distances are: 20, 15, and 10 yards. Youth distances are: 15, 10, and 5 yards.

As this is being run as the Winter Shoot the target diameters are: Head is 3 inches. Body is 9 inches. Horse is 15 inches. Visor is 1 inch. The combined target is 27 inches tall.

The target should contrast with its background.

There are two printable targets for this shoot. When printing either of these be sure to set the scale to 100% (not automatic) so that it prints the correct size, then double check that the head is indeed 3" wide.

2) Only the Head and Shoulders for use on 8.5 x 11 Regular Printers (PDF) provided courtesy of Lord John Buchanan from Ansteorra.

The resulting combination of three disks resembles a Cyclops style snowman which is appropriate for the Winter season.

The horse is 1 point. The body is 3 points. The head is 5 points. The visor circle is 15 points. Arrows striking the edge of the visor disk count as the higher score. Arrows touching the outer edge of any disk count for the appropriate score. Arrows striking where two disks join, count as the higher score. There is a maximum total score of 270 points, if the visor is hit with every shot.

A Printable Scoresheet has been provided by Lord Thomas of Salisbury from Atlantia.
