Scoring

Each event will be a stand alone whereby the actual score will count. Organisers of these events may, or may not issue medals or prizes.

You do not have to attend each event, but you will stand a better chance of a final placing if you do.

For the series, handicapped scores will count based on your 'floating handicap' from Archer’s Diary. It will be handicapped scores that will determine placings. For the purpose of the Youth Spirit Event, Handicaps will be based Outdoor Target Archery, not Field because a number of youth archers do not have a separate rating for field archery.

Archers will need to have a base rating to qualify for scoring in the series which is based the best scores from three previous target rounds. Should an archer not have previously competed in at least three target rounds with scores recorded in Archer’s Diary, then the series organisers reserve the right to adjust the archer's handicap to keep the competition fair.

The series results will not be per age class, but the overall attendance. The handicap system allows for an archer with a lower rating to compete against an archer with a higher rating and will even the scores up.

For the Youth Spirit Event, it will be the combined handicap scores from the two days that will determine the placings.

Points for each event will be awarded to the top 20 positions, with 20 points given to 1st place:

1st 20 points
2nd 19 points
3rd 18 points
4th 17 points
5th 16 points
6th 15 points
–––––––
19th 2 points
20th 1 point
21st 0 points

Over the four events, the points will accumulate as they are added together. So say an archer places 3rd in event 1, 6th in event 2, 1st in event 3 and 19th in event 4, they will accumulate 55 points overall.

Archery

There will be two perpetual trophies awarded at the end of the series: 1st Place Compound and 1st place Recurve.

Take home trophies will be given to the top three places in Compound and Recurve. Trophies will be awarded at the 2023 Archery NSW Presentation Night, or at the first available opportunity.
