Everyone starts with the Qualifier round – 30 arrows at 18 meters (10 ends of 3 arrows). You are striving for your top 2 scores during the season to qualify you for TAIL END. This also serves as the “Pins Shoot” to earn individual performance awards from USA Archery (described at end of page) under tournament conditions. Those youth shooting 9 meters for Pins do not shoot the team round.
Followed by a FUN TEAM round – Teams are evenly composed by score, organized in two flights by qualifier score (“A” above or “B” below 200 pts).. Three person (mixed) teams shoot a bracket competition – 3 arrow rounds (each team player shoots 1 arrow in rotation). Highest score wins each bracket match. Shoot down yields prize for 1st and 2nd place teams in A and B.

Top 8 shooters from Barebow, Recurve-sights, and Compound-sights will separately compete for individual TOP TURKEY scratch ($). This is an open event to all new shooters who have not participated before (just don’t qualify for SOY awards). The shooters are paired by seed (8 against 1, etc), shoot 3 arrow end at vertical 3 spot target, best score wins advancement, loser steps out!
