Each pair of archers will have a countdown for simultaneous release.  Matches will consist of a minimum of 3 ends. The archer that achieves the highest points per match will go onto compete in the next round. (Format will be similar to Round Robin style matches.)

DART ARCHERY FORMAT
Distance: 18m

Each archer begins with a score of 301. First archer to reach 0 (or closest to it by 10 ends) is the winner.

SCORING
Arrows score in the following manner:

  • In the wedge: the amount posted on the outer ring.
  • The double ring (the outer, narrow ring): twice the amount posted on the outer ring.
  • The triple ring (the inner, narrow ring): three times the amount posted on the outer ring.
  • Bull’s eye (outer bull): twenty-five points.
  • Double bull’s eye (inner bull): fifty points.

If an arrow lands on a line between two sections,  the score of section in which the majority of the arrow lies is used.  If a majority cannot be determined, the higher score is used.  If an arrow is shot into the nock of a previous shot, the score of the previous arrow is used.

Each archer begins with 301 points and deducts the points earned from total score, each end.

 

 

Barebow Crew Quarterly Shoot

Calling ALL Papago Barebow archers!

Join the Barebow Crew (BBC) for their quarterly shoot on June 10th, during regular club practice hours.

Come play ’18 Holes of Golf’ with your fellow archers and try to achieve the lowest score!!

In this tournament we will be playing “GOLF”. We will be using 4 standard 122 cm target faces, the scoring will be different however. Each “golfer” will shoot one arrow at each “hole” for a total of 18 “holes”. The “golf balls” will score points in the following manor:

GOLD will represent a hole in one.

RED will score two strokes.

BLUE will score three strokes.

Black will score four strokes.

White will score five strokes

MISSING THE TARGET will score seven points.

There will also be “water hazard’s” and “sand traps” on each target. If your “ball” land’s in a hazard you score however many strokes for the color in which your “ball” lands plus one additional stroke for landing in the hazard. Lowest score win’s the tournament.

Targets will be placed at random distances and after everyone completes all four targets, scores and removes “balls”, The targets will be moved to new distances per decision of the people who are moving them.
