The aim of the league is to develop a form of competitive archery where clubs and groups of archery friends can shoot together in a relaxed atmosphere – at a pace they like – so as to produce their very best performance. The Bow is an international internet league. Details
It is similar to the mail match – but shot outdoors at 70m.
The rules are simple:
Ø Format: FITA 70m round --- 72 arrows at 70m on a 122 cm target face using 10 zone scoring.
Ø Timing: From Jan. 1 2012 until Sept. 30, 2012.
o Victoria Bowmen will hold Bow 70m shoots on Thursdays at 6PM.
o The schedule will be set up once we know how many archers are interested in participating.
o You can also shoot and record scores at any time as long as there are two shooters and rigorous scoring.
Ø Number of shoots: each archer shoots up to 6 rounds, the top 3 scores count toward a total aggregate score. You can shoot and record scores as often as you like by submitting scores under an alternative name.
o Score sheets will be provided – or can be downloaded from the Bow website.
o Declare that you are shooting a Bow before you start scoring
o Use rigorous scoring – ask yourself how a judge would score it in a tournament
o Each round must be double scored and signed by both archer and witness.
Ø Classes: Men, Women, & Cadet - Recurve / Compound / Longbow / Barebow. You can shoot as an individual, or can set up and submit scores as a team.
Ø Fee: To cover the cost of targets the fee for each round shot is $2, or $10 for the series.
Ø Records officer: Rick Ellis will act as records officer for the club and submit archer’s names and scores to the Bow web page. Submit your score sheets to Rick.
