Here is the second draft of the Random Distance competition. Comments?
The Random Range Competition is shot from different distances which
are chosen at random from a predetermined set of distances. The archers
know what distances will be shot, but they do not know in what order
these ranges will be shot.
The distances are: 15. 20. 25. 30. 35. And 40 yards. The distances
are not repeated during a round. At the first end, a distance is drawn
at random from the set of ranges in a container. The distance is
announced and then that distance is removed from the set.
Youth Division. The distances for the youth division are: 5. 10. 15. 20. 25. And 30 yards.
For the first round the archers line up and shoot an end of two
arrows from that distance. The random drawing of ranges is repeated for
each end until all of the distances are used. Then repeat then entire
process a second time, randomly selecting from all the ranges again, for
a total of twelve ends of two arrows each. Only score after every third
end (after 6 arrows).
The roundel target is the same as a Period IKAC target, a 6cm (2.4”)
peg, 24cm (9.6”) roundel, with a 60cm (23.6”) outer circle. The peg,
roundel and circle may be of any contrasting colors.
Additional period style decoration may be added to the target as
long as it does not make aiming or scoring difficult. Such decoration is
strongly encouraged, but not required.
For those who wish to stop by a print shop, here is a PDF designed for large format printers
with the target face pre-drawn.
The peg is five points, the roundel is three points and the circle
is one point. Arrows touching the line count as the higher score. There
is a maximum possible score of 120 points.
