Limits to registration for participation by style and division:
We would like to give every IFAA archer the opportunity to participate and therefore accommodate the largest styles. We therefore decided not to limit registration.
Six archers per target will be allowed, thus allowing 168 archers on each range. In the event that registration in a style exceeds 168 archers the style will be divided in half over two ranges with identical Rounds (Unmarked Animal Round) over the first two days; one group shooting the first range and the other group the second range on the first day and rotated on the second day.
Thereafter the archers in these styles will be graded for the next two days: the top 50% shooting together and the bottom 50% shooting together.
Reservation of places is not required.
All distances are unmarked.
The competitors are not allowed to enter the ranges prior to the day of shooting that range.
Only competitors and accredited persons allowed on ranges.
Before the start of competition the bow and other archery equipment that will be used needs to be checked. The organizer has also the right to check shooters’ equipment at any time during the competition.
The shooters will have to use the same equipment throughout the tournament, unless the initial equipment is defective, in which case the approved stand-by equipment may be used
All protest must be written on official protest form.
Protest fees will be €50
Before the beginning of the competition a Protest Committee will be appointed and will consist of:
