How is the

Round Robin seeded

and how is it

going to run?

 

New Rules for 2018

 

For the Round Robin, flights to be determined based on Qualification Ranking Round score.

There is a total of 8 flights of 6 archers each.

Flights consist of all recurve or all compound archers. The number of compound flights and recurve flights are to be determined based on participation. For example in 2017 there could have been 1 recurve only flight.

Should there be a lack of division participation (ie, no cuts), the tournament may create combined recurve /compound flights at the tournament's discretion.

Archers within their flight will shoot a match against all others in their flight for a total of 5 matches per flight.

  • Recurve Round Robin matches will use the Set Point System maximum of 5 sets of 3 arrows each set. First to reach 6 set points wins the match.

  • Compound Round Robin matches will use the Cumulative Score System, 5 ends of 3 arrows. Highest score wins the match.

  • Mixed Flight (if any) Round Robin matches will use the Set Point System.

  • All recurve archers regardless of age or gender will be seeded based on their  qualifying score. 

  • All compound archers regardless of age or gender will be seeded based on their  qualifying score.

  • The number of compound flights and recurve flights will be determined based on participation and has not been determined.

  • Tournament reserves the right to combine divisions, if necessary.

  • Compound will be shooting the inner ten

  • Recurve will be shooting the outer ten

  • Qualification Round and Round Robin match play will be shot on the  Vertical 3 Spot target. 

  • Any shoot-offs will be into the center (middle) target spot.

  • The archer who wins the most matches in their flight is the Iron Archer winner of that flight.

Tie Breaker Format:

  • After 5 matches, If 2 or more archers in the same flight are tied with match wins, then they will shoot an additional three arrow set/end tie breaker against each other to determine that Iron Archer Flight winner.

  • If tied in highest score the archer with the closest arrow to the middle wins.

  • If still tied in closest arrow distance, the second closest arrow to the middle wins.

  • If still tied in closest arrow distance, the third closest arrow to the middle wins.

  • If still tied, a the tied archers will shoot a one arrow shoot off until the tie is resolved.
