Kings of Archery Series: JVD Open

Kings of Archery Series: JVD Open uses a unique competition format based on an IFAA Vegas round. Don’t worry, it’s easy to follow, but if you want to familiarise yourself with the rules ahead of the event you are in the right place.

Tournament Rules

The tournament consists of three, 30-arrow rounds in a Vegas-inspired format, but with modified scoring. Compound archers shoot scoring 10 points for the inner and “recurve” ten, identical to a standard Vegas round, while recurve and barebow archers use a unique Kings of Archery system where the complete yellow zone gets you ten points and all other scoring zones follow standard WA scoring. All competitors shoot the first two rounds (a total of 60 arrows) on Saturday. At the end of the day, all archers are ranked per division. This ranking determines your target and shooting session for Sunday. The final 30-arrow round is shot on Sunday.

For adult barebow, recurve and compound catagories a shoot of final is held. Did you shoot one of those catagories and a perfect 900 score? Congratulations! You are in. If there are less than eight archers shooting 900 in the catagory then finals places are filled based on the final ranking for that division.
