Rules

Bear River Archers specific rules:

  • All league scoring must be started within 20 minutes of the posted starting time. For example if scoring is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM you must start your score by 7:20 PM. The exception to this rule is Saturdays, any person shooting their league score on Saturday must start scoring by 2:00 PM. ‘This rule is out of consideration for the person tasked with watching the building.’
  • All scores must be shot in one session. ‘Don’t start a score one night and finish another.’
  • Once a score is started it must be finished and/or submitted. ‘Don’t stop scoring and decide to score on another night because you are not shooting up to expectations.’
  • Partial scores will be accepted. ‘If you can’t finish shooting your score the partial score turned in will be your score for that week.’
  • Make up scores can be submitted up to 1 week early and 2 weeks late, with the exception being the end of leagues, no scores will be accepted after the last day of official scoring. Make up scores cannot replace a shot score.
  • Put your name (First and Last) on your score card. Scores without names will be dropped. ‘Come on people.’
  • In the case that a shooter misses a week of scoring they will be given a ghost score. Ghost scores are calculated as the average of the last 2 weeks of shooting minus 10.
  • Any shooter who misses 3 weeks of scoring, without making provisions to make up scores, may be removed from their team.
  • Teams short of shooters will be given a ghost shooter. The ghost shooter score is the average of the team’s score.

 

Any questions can be submitted to a member of the club presidency for consideration or clarification. As always, we are happy to work with you in the case of extenuating circumstances like equipment failure or family emergencies.

 

General Scoring Rules for NFAA Indoor Shooting

*These rules apply to the blue and white 5 spot or 1 spot targets.

 

A round will consist of 60 arrows shot in 12, 5-arrow ends for a possible score of 300 with 60 Xs. There will also be 2 official practice ends before scoring starts. Each round will be broken into 3 games of 4 ends a piece. After 6 ends shooters will move their targets, if they start shooting the top spot on the butt hey will move their target to the bottom and vice verse.

 

1 Spot Scoring:

Scoring will proceed as follows:

An arrow in the white of the center of the target will score a 5. An arrow in the X ring scores a 5 and will be denoted on the score sheet as an X for use in tie-breaking situations.

The blue rings proceed outwards from the center white with scores of 4, 3, 2, 1. With 1 being the outside ring. Any arrow landing outside of the 1 ring of the shooters designated target will be scored a 0.

An arrow need only be touching the line of an inner ring to score the next highest score. That is, an arrow does not need to break the line between the 4 and the 5 to be scored a 5, it need only touch the line.
All questions will be resolved by a line judge.

 

5 Spot Scoring:

Scoring will proceed as follows:

An arrow in the white of the center of the target will score a 5. An arrow in the X ring scores a 5 and will be denoted on the score sheet as an X for use in tie-breaking situations.
