Indoor Club Tournament
Saturday 8th April 2017
Assembly (ready to shoot) at 13:45, Sighters at 14:00
This year we are shooting an outdoor round - Indoors!
How you may well ask? This is what we will be doing.
As you know when we shoot a round outdoors, targets are at different distances. Starting with the longest first and getting shorter as the round goes on. The target face therefore is at its smallest at the longer distances and bigger as it gets closer.
We can replicate that indoors by putting on different size faces all at the same distance. Small target faces first and then moving to bigger ones as the round progresses.
This is how it will work:
2 dozen arrows (shot in 3's) at 20yds on a 40cm face.
2 dozen arrows (shot in 3's) at 20yds on a 60cm face.
2 dozen arrows (shot in 3's) at 20yds on an 80cm face.
There will be breaks in between as target faces are changed just like outdoors when bosses are moved.
Everyone can reach 20yds and will be a great challenge on the smaller faces but it will become easier as the faces increase in size. Or will it???
It will be shot in a normal competition environment so will give those that have not experienced an indoor comp before a chance to get familiar with how they work.
The Hall is open at 1pm with assembly at 1.45pm. There will be one round of sighters at 2pm and shooting will start immediately afterwards.
Date: Thursday 23rd February 2017
Time : 8.15pm
Venue : Maidenhall Sports Centre (normal meeting room up stairs)
