In most camps, and in many schools, there is an archery contest, or tournament, at the end of the season. The rounds are like those in official competition. (A "round" is the word used to mean shooting a certain number of arrows at a certain distance.) FIELD. The field for men is usually 100 yards long, with the targets at one end, and a fixed shooting line at the other, with other shooting lines marked 40, 50, 60 and 80 yards from the targets. Shooting lanes, one for each target, should be at least 1 5 to 20 feet wide. targets. The target used in national tournaments is handmade, of rye-straw, 50 inches in diameter, and about 5 or 6 inches thick. For practice, and general use, a straw butt is usually set up, by piling bales of straw together.

The regulation target "face" is of paper or cloth. The center, or bull's-eye, is 9.6 inches in diameter, and the diameter of the entire scoring surface is 48 inches. Between the center and the circumference there are four circles, or bands, each 4.8 inches in width. The colors of the center and bands, and their values in scoring are as follows: A hit in the gold counts 9 red " 7 blue " 5 black 3 white " 1 scoring. Scoring in archery is on the basis of points, rather than the number of hits. In a tournament, the archer (or team) scoring the highest number of points is the winner. If there is a tie, the archer wins who has the highest score at the longest range. If there is still a tie, the archer wins who has the highest score at the next longest distance, and so on.

 A record is kept of the score for each arrow, the number of hits, and then the total number of points. For instance, if six arrows were shot, and of the six, two were hits in the gold, one in the red, one in the blue, and two in the white, the score would be: 6-32, or 9 plus 9 plus 7 plus 5 plus 1 plus 1. When an arrow is on the dividing line of two colors, it is always given the higher value of the two. An arrow that passes through the target, or bounces off, is scored as 5 points. with headquarters in Amherst, Massachusetts, makes the rules, keeps recordsFind Article, and publishes reports.
