Rain of Arrows
Name: Rain of arrows
Track required: 120m track, 2-3m wide
Equipment required: 2 targets (120cm square; with 3 zones of 40cm, 80cm and 120cm width), poles (at least 1.5m tall), stopwatch or timing gates
No warm up runs are allowed.
Each competitor has 6 competition runs on the track.
All arrows must be in the quiver until the rider passes through the start gate.
Arrows may be drawn from a quiver individually or several may be drawn at once then held in the bow or shooting hand.
Drawing arrows from the boot or belt is not allowed.
The targets are placed 9 – 15 m from the edge of the track
T1 is at 90m facing towards the 45m point
T2 is at 30m facing towards the 75m point
In the 1st zone (between posts 1 & 2 – 0m & 60m), only the 1st target (T1) may be shot.
In the 2nd zone (between posts 2 & 3 – 60m & 120m), only the 2nd target (T2) may be shot.
Any hits shot from the wrong zone for that target or from before the start or after the finish poles do not count.
There is no limit to the number of arrows that may be shot
The total score is the sum of the arrow hits and speed points from each run
First target (T1): 5,4,3 pts
Second target (T2): 6,5,4 pts
Par speed is 20s for 120m.
Faster than this you gain points at 1pt/s; slower than this points are deducted at 1pt/s (or part thereof).
Speed points are only gained if a target is hit on that run
