  1. All shooters must have proof of NFAA or USA Archery membership at the touranment site. Guest divisions are available but are not eligible for awards or ranking. 

  2. Two whistle blasts = archers to the line. One whistle blast starts shooting and the clock. Three blasts =retrieve arrows & score. Four or more blasts Emergency stop shooting.  STOP IMMEDIATELY.

  3. 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.

  4. All archers will straddle the shooting line.  When finished shooting, please step behind the line.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Archers shooting the target faces on the bottom half of the target butt will shoot first followed by archers shooting target faces on the top half of the target butt. Halfway through scoring archers will invert target locations on bale from top to bottom or vice versa. Archers on the bottom half of the target butt will always shoot first. 

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Maximum arrow diameter allowed is 0.422 inches with point diameter not to exceed 0.425 inches.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
