CBH JOAD Half Field Round – June 12, 2021 (updated with results)

JOAD Field Round – June 12, 2021 (open for adults)





The Chicago Bow Hunters Archery Club is pleased to host another Field Round event.  This is a shorter, Field Archery event, open to JOAD and adult archers.

While this event usually squeezes in a few parents as extra archers, this year the doors are open to all adults who would like to join in.



CBH 2021 Half Field Recap

We had 19 shooters experience a beautiful day shooting on the first half of CBH’s field course. There were shooters who have never tried this style of archery and our hope is that everyone had a good time and learned about shooting field.

There were many things to note, but the laughter and fun experienced throughout the day is what I’ll remember. Our overall high score was Nazh Macalandong. There was a spirited competition at the cub distance, with only 2 points separating Veda and Alice. Amongst the, ahem, biggest kids, the scores may not have been earth shattering, but the repartee was saucy.

We are very fortunate at CBH to have one of the few field courses in the area. It requires lots of land and constant attention to keep a field course viable. Many thanks to all who helped prepare the course for our use, including: Wally Schmidt, Heather Hodge, Jeff Marchetti, Gene Turek, Jim McDonough, Megan McDonough and Bill Stryjewski. I’m sure I’ve forgotten some but the appreciation is of course extended to all. Also a big thanks to our registrar, Andrew Querol.

Thank you to every archer who came to have fun, support field archery and CBH. We look forward to seeing you on September, 11, when the second leg of our event will be held on the second half of CBH’s field course.

Please find the results of the event attached.

CBH JOAD FIELD ROUND Saturday, June 12, 2021

9:00 AM Shotgun Start


The Chicago Bow Hunters Archery Club is pleased to host the Second Annual JOAD Field Tournament.  This tournament will be for all bow styles, age, and gender divisions that comply with USA Archery JOAD categories.  This event will be using NFAA-style field archery rules, though, which includes distances marked in yards, not meters.


Tournament Series:

This will be the first of a two tournament series. The second tournament will be in the fall. It will be conducted on the second half of the CBH field course. There will be aggregate awards to those shooting in both events.


The tournament will take place on 14 targets of CBH’s permanent NFAA Field Range.  Four arrows at each target, for a total of 56 arrows.  Distances will be marked, and in yards.  The range of distances:

  • Compound (Cadet and Junior+): 20FT-50YD
  • Recurve and Barebow (Junior+): 20FT-50YD
  • All younger age divisions and bow styles:  20FT-30YD


20FT-15YD.  A novice can be any age or bow style.  Just consult with your coach if you are a new shooter to find out if this is your appropriate category.

With your coach’s recommendation, you can also shoot “up” in age category.  If you are Bowman or Cub, and the maximum shot of 50 yards is well within your skill set, you can register and compete with other Cadets or Juniors.


Medals will be awarded for the first three placements in each division.  The award presentation will be at approximately 11:30 AM.  Aggregate awards will be presented then for the combined champions.

Pre-registration and Tournament Fee:

Pre-registration is required (fill out the form at the bottom of this page.).  The tournament fee is $15.  There is a maximum capacity of 56 shooters.


We will have a shotgun start at 9:00 AM. Pre tournament meeting will begin at 8:30 AM. Please arrive 60 minutes prior to our scheduled start to set up and warm up, receive instructions and get to your assigned positions on the field course.

The estimated amount of time to complete the course is two and a half hours from the time you get started.


The kitchen at Chicago Bow Hunters will be in full swing. An all-you-can-eat lunch buffet will be available for $5. I’m checking on the kitchen plan. Unless otherwise posted here, count on food not being provided, still due to COVID stuff.


Chicago Bow Hunters is located in a residential neighborhood.  It is at 320 Charlestown Drive, Bolingbrook, IL 60440.  From Boughton Rd, Exit off of I-355, head west four stop lights.  Turn right on Pinecrest and go to one stop sign.  Turn left on Charlestown and go a few blocks.  From the street you will see a gated driveway on the right.
