CLASSIC 300 TOURNAMENT RULES (guided by the NFAA)

The line captain will make all decisions on scoring questionable arrows, and their decisions are final. All arrows must remain in the target until scoring is completed. Touching any questionable arrow prior to the completion of scoring shall result in the questionable arrow being scored in the lower scoring area. Witnessed bounce outs and pass through arrows will be re-shot at the end of the round. This is subject to the discretion of the line captain.

There will be two official practice ends consisting of three arrows each.

Scoring area values shall be 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1. Arrows touching the line shall be in the next higher scoring area. A separate tally of X’s will be recorded in the event of ties.

No archer may advance in front of the shooting line during normal shooting periods for ANY reason. Any archer shooting prior to beginning whistle or after whistle signaling end will lose the highest scoring arrow or arrows equaling the number of discrepant arrows shot. Anyone shooting more than three arrows will score the lowest three arrows. A penalty of one point will be assessed for each arrow shot over the prescribed number. Shooters are allowed one arrow per spot. If more than one arrow is in a single spot, shooter will lose the highest arrow or arrows in that spot.

In event of equipment failure, verified by the line captain, the archer shall have two ends plus the remainder of the end in which the equipment malfunctioned to make repairs. Backup bows may be used. The archer shall be given one end (three arrows) for the purpose of re-sighting. Make up arrows will be shot at the end of the round in the presence of the line captain. The occurrence of repair or replacement shall not happen more than once during a round.

When an arrow is dropped while the archer is in the act of shooting, he may shoot another arrow in place of the dropped arrow if the dropped arrow is within ten feet of the shooting line. (A dropped arrow is one which falls while being transferred from the quiver to be knocked on the string; or in preparation of the shot; or falls from the string during a controlled letdown.)

Any archer who purposely disfigures a target face for any reason may be disqualified.

Any archer conducting himself in an unsportsmanlike manner shall be IMMEDIATELY disqualified.

The use of spotting scopes will be permitted both on and off the shooting line. However, on-line scopes will be restricted to small hand held scopes. Archers will not be allowed to step on and off the line for the purpose of using spotting scopes. No verbal communications will be allowed.

Bowhunter Freestyle competitors may NOT adjust their pin sights during a round.

Ties will be decided by; (1) Archer with the greatest number of X’s; then, (2) the greatest number of 10’s; then (3) the greatest number of 9’s. If a tie still exists, then contestants will be declared tied, and equal awards will be given or prize money for the combined total of the contestants will be divided equally.

No Alcoholic beverages are allowed in the range area.

Any rules not covered above shall be referred to the Tournament Committee.

Any grievances must be presented in writing to the Tournament Committee.

Any items not covered above shall be governed by the official NFAA rulebook.
