- Jul 11, 2009Gentlemen & Ladies,
>I am sponsoring an archery competition at Pennsic. I have drawn up a
set of rules for the contest and have included them below. Be
advised, I am not yet sure what exactly will constitute the target
butt. I envision it as a being similar to a Saunders matt on a
tripod. This is meant to be a simple hit or miss competition. No
math whatsoever on anyone's part. Even the distances shot will
remain unknown and irrelevant. The only counting required will be in
selecting 6 projectiles.
>I have a question for the group. Are the following rules clear, and
have I covered all the bases? Please understand that I am not asking
for improvements or major changes to the competition. If you think a
different format is superior, please draw up a set of rules and
sponsor your own competition and I'll enter and compete.
>Pennsic 38 Alchem Archery Competition
1) This competition will award two prizes. One prize will go to
the winning hand bow shooter, and the other to the winning crossbow
shooter. Hand bows and crossbows will shoot simultaneously at the
2) The target consists of a movable butt at an unknown range. A
hit anywhere on the butt will be counted as good, including hits
which fall or bounce back out. Glances will not be counted as good.
3) The shoot is un-timed.
4) Participants each begin with six arrows or bolts. Each
participant will shoot until a hit is made on the target or all
remaining arrows or bolts have been expended. Participants who hit
the target stay in the competition into the next round. Those who
did not make a hit are eliminated.
5) Once all participants have shot, the marshal will allow shooters
to gather their arrows and bolts from the ground surrounding the
target. These misses will be handed to the scoring marshal for safe
keeping until the end of the shoot or until a participant has been
eliminated from the competition.
6) After all misses have been gathered, any arrow or bolt which has
made a good hit on the target may be retrieved and
re-used. Participants who hit the target and remain in the
competition may combine the scoring arrow or bolt with any others
remaining from the previous round.
7) The competition will continue until one winning hand bow and one
winning crossbow shooter remain.
