If you are unfamiliar with the FITA Field archery format, here is a quick FAQ on what it is.
It is a two day event. on each day there are 24 different targets. You shoot 3 arrows at each target. So, 72 arrows on day 1 followed by 72 arrows on day 2, for a total of 144 arrows. Your shooting positions will be challenging, uneven, and possibly located in a shallow river.
Distances are unmarked on the first day. Distances are marked on the second day. To be eligible for medals, you must shoot both days.

Recurve (Junior and older): 10M-60M
Barebow (Junior and older): 5M-50M

A unique twist we have to this tournament is that we encourage novice shooters to participate. Novice shooters will shoot on Sunday only, with the longest shot being 15M, and are eligible for their own awards.
