Format: This tournament will consist of a 72 arrow single distance ranking round using two lines of archers (AB/CD), followed by a break and then optional elimination matches using cumulative score for compound archers and set points for recurve and barebow archers. Arrows for the 720 round will be shot in six arrow ends of four minutes per end, with a total of 12 ends shot for score. Elimination matches will be shot in three arrow ends with two minutes per end, five ends for compound archers and 3-5 ends for recurve and barebow archers depending on set points earned. Electronic scoring will be used for this event through Rcherz. This event is Star FITA registered, both Nationals and World records are eligible to be set.

            Full details for the elimination rounds will be posted as we get closer to the event. Some age or gender divisions may be combined for eliminations to form more complete brackets. Archers who have never shot an elimination round are welcome and encouraged! Come learn how the rounds work in a friendly and fun environment with some excellent competition from across the Mid-Atlantic "Old Dominion" region.


Awards: High quality custom medals will be presented immediately following the qualification round once all scorecards are verified. Separate awards will be presented for the optional elimination rounds, we are considering either trophies or some custom item (belt buckle, engraved pint glass, etc) and will announce the award prior to the event. This tournament is also registered as a Star FITA event, making it possible to earn WA Star pins and set world records as well as National ones.
