  1. Two whistle blasts = archers to the line. One whistle blast starts

shooting and the clock. Three blasts = retrieve arrows and

score. Four or more blasts = Emergency; stop shooting. STOP

IMMEDIATELY.

  1. You, the archer, are responsible for your equipment to comply

with NFAA rules. It is also your responsibility to confirm you are

shooting in the correct style and division. If you are registered

in the wrong division or style, this must be corrected prior to

shooting your second day’s score.

  1. All archers will straddle the shooting line. When finished

shooting, please step behind the line.

  1. When using the NFAA Indoor Five Spot Target: An archer

may shoot any of the 5 spots in any order and shoot as many

arrows into any one spot as the archer desires, not to exceed

the prescribed number of arrows per end. Scoring shall be five

points for the combined 4 cm. X-ring and 8 cm. white ring and

four points for the combined 12 cm. and 16 cm. blue rings.

  1. Prior to each shooting line there will be 2 ends of practice on

your assigned target. Scoring begins immediately after the two

practice ends, no additional practice ends will be shot.

  1. Arrows must be shot within the 4-minute time limit. If an arrow

is shot after the whistle blows the highest scoring arrow will not

count. If you shoot more than 5 arrows, only the lowest 5 arrows

will be scored. Missed arrows are counted as shot arrows.

Additionally, a penalty of one point will be assessed for each

arrow shot over the prescribed 5 arrows.

  1. There will be a foul line ten (10) feet in front of the shooting line.

If an arrow is dropped, within the ten (10) foot foul line, while

the archer is in the act of shooting, another arrow may be shot.

Arrows passing beyond this line, will be considered shot.

  1. Witnessed bounce outs and pass through arrows will be re-shot

after scoring of the last end of that round, on a target designated

by the tournament officials.

  1. Maximum arrow diameter allowed is 0.422 inches with point

diameter not to exceed 0.425 inches.

  1. In the event of equipment failure, please raise your bow to

signal an official. You will have 15 minutes to repair or replace

equipment. One practice end will be allowed. The archer will be

allowed to shoot practice arrows during the 15 minutes of repair

time; all arrows missed during the breakdown, will be shot after

the final end. Archers are granted only one equipment failure per

day.

  1. Each group of archers on a target butt will appoint a Target

Captain and two score keepers. Arrows touching the scoring line

will count for the higher value. The Target Captain shall rule on

all questions on his/her target subject to appeal to a line judge.

An official will not be able to make a judgment on an arrow(s)

value if the target butt, target face, arrow or any part of the

arrow has been touched. Judgments made by a line judge will be

final.

  1. Archers must record X’s and numeric values of each arrow in

each scoring box on the scorecard before touching or drawing

any arrows from the target. Example:

Score X’s

X X X 5 5 25 3

X X X X 5 25 4

  1. Scorecards must have all totals correct and in the proper place.

Both score keepers and the archer must sign the scorecard. A

scorecard submitted with incorrect total(s) may be disqualified.

  1. EACH ARCHER MUST TURN IN THEIR OWN SCORECARD

WITHIN 30 MINUTES OF THE END OF THEIR ASSIGNED ROUND.

TURN IN BOTH SCORECARDS, THE WHITE CARD WILL BE

STAMPED BY A TOURNAMENT OFFICIAL AND WILL SERVE AS

YOUR RECEIPT. All scorecards must be turned in to a tournament

official within thirty minutes after your shooting line finishes. NO

EXCEPTIONS Failure to do so will result in your score not being

recorded for that day’s round of competition.

  1. Ties for first, second and third place in the Professional Divisions

will be determined by shoot off. Shoot offs will be one practice end, followed by one

end where only the x ring scores 5. Then additional ends where

only the x ring scores 5, scored inside out, until ties are broken.

All ends are sudden death.

Each archer’s placement in the tournament will be determined by the

order in which he/she drops out of the shoot off. If more than

one archer drops out of the shoot off in the same end, those

archers will be placed based on their total score and X count,

including the score and X’s accumulated in the shoot off. Ties still

remaining will equally split the combined payout of the tied positions.

  1. Ties for first place only, in the Junior, Adult & Senior (not professional)

divisions, will be determined by shoot off. Same shoot off format as above.

All other ties will receive duplicate awards.

  1. All protests must be in writing and turned in to the Tournament

Chairman within one hour after the finish of the shooting line

where the protest happened. The protest must be accompanied

by $50 cash.

  1. No alcoholic beverages may be carried or consumed during

shooting hours at the National Tournament. Anyone caught

breaking this rule will be immediately disqualified and not be

allowed to complete the tournament.

  1. Any equipment that impairs the hearing of the competitor will not

be allowed on the shooting line. This is a safety issue and will be

enforced.

  1. Pro Division Dress Code applies to all NFAA Pro Sanctioned

Events including the 3-Star Tour Events.
