The League Format
In 2014 there will be 11 competitions held throughout the year. The individual competition will be based on an archer’s top 5 scores from the year.
The Competition Format
Each competition will consist of 16 mixed targets. 8 targets will be marked and 8 unmarked. The day’s competition should take about 4 hours.
We will have 6 pegs out at each competition. Red, Blue and Yellow pegs will be official distances.
Peg Distance Ranges
|Marked||10 – 60||5 – 50||5 – 40||5 – 30|
|Unmarked||10 – 55||5 – 45||5 – 35||5 – 25|
|Distances are in metres.|
Senior and junior beginner archers start on White peg.
Cadet beginner archers start on Green peg.
Youth beginner archers start on Pink peg.
When you score over 140 points you must move to the next peg until you reach your official peg.
When you score over 165 points you must move up two pegs until you reach your official peg.
Archers who shot last year will need to start on the same peg and can not move backwards at any stage. If an archer chooses to shoot a lower peg the score will not count towards their league score.
The bow classes will be: Compound, Recurve, Barebow, Instinctive and Longbow.
How to Get Involved
There will be shoots held regularly during the year, practice butts from 9.30, competition starts at 10. Check the calendar for the next competition.
