ATTENTION

ALL TRADITIONAL ARCHERS!

The San Diego Archers will host the

Sir Gordon Traditional Shoot

This Sunday, August 31, 2014.

Registration opens at 7:30am

Registration closes at 8:45am

Shoot begins at 9am

The Sir Gordon Traditional Shoot includes:

28 3D targets

1 arrow per target

NO RANGE FINDERS ALLOWED!

This is a 3D Unmarked 28 Target shoot. Compound bow shooters dust off your recurves and longbows and get out and do it like it should be done.

There is one compound bow class for those who haven’t got a Real Bow. 

A wide range of high quality Rhinehart and Mackenzie targets are set at unmarked yardage in various hunting scenarios.  Only one arrow per target is allowed unless mulligans have been purchased.  A maximum of two mulligans and one doe tag may be purchased at registration for an additional $1 each.

Scoring: 10-8-5

Maximum Score: 280

As an unmarked shoot, you have to estimate the distance to the target yourself without the assistance of a range finder.  This is a difficult and challenging aspect of these shoots, so don’t let your shooting partners know what you think the distance is.

Mulligans and Doe Tags:

If you missed or scored low with the first arrow, a mulligan allows you to take another shot at a target.  If you use a mulligan, your score is determined by that second arrow, even if you score worse than the first arrow.  You may use a second mulligan on the same target.  Your score is determined by the last arrow shot.

There will be 1 or 2 buck-doe spreads in the field, where the doe is placed between the buck and the archer.  If you hit the doe and do not have a doe tag, you score -5 on the target. If you have a doe tag, you score zero.  You cannot use a mulligan if you hit the doe, whether or not you have a doe tag.  If you hit the buck or miss completely, you may use a mulligan and your score is determined from that second arrow.

Entry fee $15 per person, $10 for members

Note: As with all 3D shoots – We will shoot come Rain or Shine.

Please arrive at the Balboa Park Archery Range with plenty of time to register.

To ensure we start on time, it will be necessary to close registration at 8:45am.

Shooting starts at 9:00am.
