New Proposed Shoot
This shoot is pulled from the old Atlantian Seasonal Challenge. It was a shoot designed to help archers work on shooting better at greater ranges.
Please read the SSAC General Rules, as these apply to all SSAC shoots. Below are the additional rules for this specific shoot.
The object is to hit the target (see below) with at least 4 shafts. Archers start at 10 yards. IF at least 4 shafts have hit the disc, the archer moves back 5 yards and shoots 6 shafts at the new distance. After shooting 6 arrows at the distance, if at least 4 shafts hit the disc the archer moves back 5 more yards until less than 4 shafts hit the disc. At that point the round ends and the score is the LAST distance at which at least 4 shafts hit the disc. Thus the round continues in this fashion – at 10 yards, archer gets 4 hits, moves back to 15 yards, gets 5 hits, moves back to 20 yards, and continues until LESS THAN 4 shafts hit the disc. Archers will shoot 6 shafts at each distance. All archers are encouraged, but not required, to continue shooting the longer distances for practice until the round for everyone has ended.
Using a standard 60cm target face. At 10 yards, the entire 60 cm target face is a disc (all 10 rings). At each 5 yard move back the disc surface is reduced by one ring (each color has two rings in it). Thus the farthest distance will be 55 yards shooting for the center most ring. Should any archer reach that distance successfully and require additional ends, they will continue in 5 yard increments shooting at the center most ring for score.
Each arrow that hits the disc for that end counts for 2 points. The inner rings do not matter, this is only a hit or miss shoot. Any arrow breaking the line counts in the archer`s favor.
In addition the Max Range is the yardage at which the Archer last successfully hit the disc with four arrows. For example if the Archer only hit the disc 2 times at 40 yards, then the Max Range to enter would be 35.
