Please make sure your registration shows in the correct shooting division.  We will not move you once you have started shooting for score (unless you are in the wrong sex/age group).

Tie Breakers:

We are not going to be able to have shoot-offs with all of the shooting times so tie breakers are as follows:  X's, Inside Out X's, First person to drop an X, First person to drop a 10.  If archers are still tied, we will combine the places tied and split the money accordingly.


Championship Division will be paid out using the NFAA Pro Payout on page 41 of the current NFAA Rulebook.  Basically it says that there will be 1 paid for 1-3 shooters, 2 paid for 4-6 shooters, 3 paid for 7-9, 4 paid for 10-12 etc.  Chart from 2017 NFAA Rulebook.

Flighting will be in accordance with NFAA Flight rules for Sectionals and Nationals found under Paragraph G on page 46 of the NFAA Rule Book.  Example in Appendix 1.  Paragraph 4 deals with ties and unequal numbers.  We will flight according to Final score and flighting will be accomplished on the last day of the tournament.

With 9 lanes we will be restricted to 36 shooters per time – 126 shooters maximum (unless we open the other side on Sunday - reminder other side is not as bright so register earlier so you don't have to shoot there) .

We are not selling space on the line.

Warm-up is outside.
No refunds.  No shows score zero.  If there is available space on a future line we will place you on the next line available at your request.

NFAA has excellent information on rules for the Vegas Shoot at https://www.nfaausa.com/tournament/the-vegas-shoot/  So far I have only seen a few rules that we are not following; we are not offering the 60cm face and we are not requiring 15 years of age for flights, we are not separating sexes for Flights, we are not offering a Young Adult class.  This list is not all-encompassing.  Please contact Oliver with any questions.

At this time there are no crossbows.  If we have more than four asking, we will offer a Championship Division just for crossbows.
