The San Diego Archers
Will host the Animal Round
This Saturday, October 20, 2018
At the Balboa Park Rube Powell Archery Range
Registration opens at 7:30 am
Registration Closes at 8:45 am
Shoot begins at 9 am
The Animal Round includes:
28 2D Paper Field Targets
1-3 Arrows per Target
Maximum Score: 588
No Rangefinders allowed
Animal Rounds use 2D paper targets with ‘uneven’ distances between 5 and 60 yards, reminiscent of the Hunter Round. The rules and scoring are significantly different.
The archer begins at the first YELLOW shooting stake of the target and shoots the first arrow. If it hits, you do not have to shoot again. If it misses, you advance to the second shooting stake and shoot the second arrow, then, to the third shooting stake for a third shot, if needed.
The best score per target is 21
Maximum Score: 588
There are 3 scoring zones: Bonus Kill Zone, Kill Zone, and Hit Zone.
Scoring is based on where you hit and with which arrow.
The first arrow shot is scored 21, 20 or 18. The second arrow is scored 17, 16 or 14, and the third arrow is scored 13, 12 or 10. A scoring chart is included on your scorecard.
- Under 15, the longest distance is 50 yards.
- For Cubs, under 12, the longest distance is 30 yards.
$10 for SDA members & Active Duty Military
$15 for non-members.

This SATURDAY is the last Animal Round of the year, for all you Members shooting for the Club Championship awards.
NOTE: IT MAY BE DIFFICULT TO GET TO THE ALCAZAR PARKING LOT NEXT TO THE RANGE!
The park has scheduled the Alzheimers San Diego Walk on Saturday. The walk starts at 8am.
We have dealt with this in the past, we just have to walk a bit farther to get to the archery range. If you arrive early enough, you may be able to talk your way past the road barricade guards.
