Format / Rules: 
• World Archery Rules will be used as a guideline.
• Archers must provide their own bows and target arrows.
• The “900” American round will be shot each day as follows:
-30 arrows from 60 yards – Five ends of six arrows
-30 arrows from 50 yards – Five ends of six arrows
-30 arrows from 40 yards – Five ends of six arrows
• The maximum time permitted for an archer to shoot an end of six arrows is four minutes.
• 10 ring and “X” ring hits will be kept on the scorecard by all competitors and used as a tie-breaker.
• In event of an equipment failure, or a medical issue, extra time may be given to make the necessary repairs, change the damaged equipment or for medical personnel to determine the problem and decide whether or not the archer is fit to continue competing unassisted.  However, the maximum time to make up arrows to be shot is 15 minutes (following regular order of shooting and timing).  The athlete shall make up the appropriate number of arrows at the earliest opportunity under the supervision of a Judge or DOS.
• Field glasses, telescopes and other visual aids may be used for spotting arrows provided they do not represent any obstruction to other athletes.  Scopes shall be adjusted so the highest portion of the scope is no higher than the armpit of the athletes.
• No broadheads will be permitted.
• Regulation World Archery 122-centimeter (48-inch) five-color target faces will be used.
• Dividing lines are part of the higher scoring.  The arrow shaft must only touch the color or  dividing line between scoring zones to score the higher value.
• Hits will not be marked on the target face.  Witnessed bounce out and pass through arrows will be shot over at the end of the distance as make-up arrows.  If the bounce out destroys an arrow in the target, then it is a “Robin Hood” and will score the value of the arrow it destroyed.
• Special archery attire will not be required; however, closed-toe shoes are required.
• Archers must complete events to win a medal.
• All archers shall score their arrows in a timely manner.  Once all arrows in the scoring area have been scored, all archers will be called back to the shooting line.  Archers needing time to find arrows missing the scoring area will have additional time at breaks and when shooting is complete. Please bring a sufficient number of arrows.
• The Director of Shooting shall be advised if an archer, when drawing back the string of his bow uses any technique which, in the opinion of the judges, could allow the arrow, if accidentally released, to fly beyond a safety zone.  If the archer persists in using such a technique, he shall, in the interest of safety, be asked by the Games Director or DOS to stop shooting immediately and to leave the field.  Archers must draw back with the arrow pointed at the target, not at the sky.

Medals: 

In each class and age division, Gold, Silver and Bronze medals will be awarded to the top three scores.  There will be no tie-breakers.  Ties will be given identical medals.  Medals will be awarded at the Sport Social.
