USA Archery has determined that we will allow camo patterned equipment at all sanctioned events. Camo clothing is still not allowed. This new by-law will impact any archer who plans on attending the 2016 Arizona Cup because it is World Ranking Event for both able-body and Para athletes.

Judges are not scary people: they are trained to protect your score and help you understand the rules, not to punish you for mistakes.

If you have a question, ask the judge. It’s usually easier to fix a mistake at the beginning than to wait and have to unscramble the error later, so check with the judge. This includes telling the judge if you have an equipment failure, a rebound (bounce-out) or hanging arrow or if you write the wrong number on the score sheet.

If your scoring group cannot agree on a close line call, score the rest of the arrows in your scoring group and then call the judge. Identify the questionable arrow (don’t tell the judge whose arrow it is).

Enjoy your shooting in 2020!
