Event Format

72 arrow rounds at 70-30m for recurves, 50-30m for barebow or compounds to be shot in accordance with World Archery Rules of Shooting. Arrows will be shot in ends of 6 arrows in 4 minutes. There will be four archers per target, shooting in two details. Compounds will shoot at individual 6 zone target faces.

In the afternoon there will be matchplay for all categories. Formats will depend on entries, with potentially some categories combined by bowstyle and/or gender. It may make sense to allow matches across distances, but archers would shoot the same distance all day. We would like everyone to get as much matchplay practice as possible, so we will be using a round-robin format instead of an straight knockout. Details will be determined on the day depending on attendees.

Judges

David Strong, Aislinn O'Connell, Ben Hastings, Terence Williams

Awards

Awards will depend on the matchplay format.
