Field Target

The Field Round includes:
28 2D Paper Field Targets
4 Arrows per Target
Maximum Score: 560

The Field Round is a field archery tournament of 28 2D paper targets, firing 4 arrows per target from WHITE colored stakes for a total of 112 arrows.  There are 3 scoring zones on each target. Each arrow scores either 3 points for the black outer ring, 4 for the white middle ring or 5 the black bull’s eye. There is a center X ring to the inner 5 point zone.

Add up each arrow’s score to give a total score out of a maximum 560.

Field Rounds are at ‘even’ (5 yds) distances up to 80 yards, with the shortest distances measured in feet.

Targets may have different shooting positions:

1) All four arrows shot from one marked stake.

2) “Fan”: Each arrow shot from a different marked stake spread in a fan pattern, with each stake at the same distance to the target.

3) “Walk Up”: Each arrow shot from a different marked stake at decreasing distances to the target. For example, one arrow each at 45, 40, 35, 30 yards, or two arrows each at 45 and 40 yards.

Younger shooters

For Youths (12-14 yo), the longest distance is 40 yards
For Cubs (11 yo & under), the longest distance is 25 yards.

Tournaments Types

What to expect when you arrive at a San Diego Archers Rube Powell Balboa Park Archery Range event before 8:15 am

The small parking lot closest to the Rube Powell Balboa Park Archery Range, called the Alcazar Parking Lot, is usually full by 8:15 am. The Organ Pavilion Parking lot is the next closest lot.

When you step up to the registration table, you’ll be asked to sign a paper waiver, read the safety brief on the back of the waiver, pick up your scorecard; then head over to the practice area with your gear.

Yes, waivers must be signed for everyone stepping onto the archery range during a tournament, including all guests.

Looking to join a group?

Surprising fact: Most archers enjoy talking about their bow and equipment. 🙂

To keep wait times at each target down to a minimum, we ask that you shoot in groups of 3 to 5 persons when possible. Yes, pets are allowed on the range (safety check—no pet running or wandering the range off leash allowed).

While warming up in the practice area, be sure to strike up a conversation with others shooting bow styles similar to your own; and ask them whether you may join their group. If you are unable to find a group to shoot with, ask one of the friendly volunteer staff members for assistance.

Once your group of 3 to 5 persons is set, walk back to the whiteboard just behind the registration table. Enter the name of each person into an unoccupied starting target number stake on the whiteboard. You’ll be walking to that target number stake right after the target briefing, which begins around 8:40 am.

 Following the briefing, you’ll walk to your starting target number. When the Balboa Park Bell Tower chimes at 9:00 am, the shoot officially begins.
