    4. In the event of equipment failure the archer shall inform the Shoot Director after

      the end is completed. The archer will thereafter have 15 minutes of repair time without holding up the tournament. After resolving the problem (either the repair of the failed equipment or the use of other equipment, which has passed the bow inspection) the archer shall be allowed to shoot the missed arrows after the final end of that Round, with a maximum of 3 ends (15 arrows).

      An archer will only be allowed one equipment failure per Round.

  3. Scoring

  1. When an arrow is dropped while the archer is in the act of shooting, he may shoot another arrow in place of the dropped arrow if the dropped arrow is within 10 feet of the shooting line.

  2. If an archer shoots more than five arrows in an end, only the five arrows of the lower value may be scored.

  3. If an archer shoots less than five arrows in one end he may shoot his remaining arrows if the omission is discovered before the end is officially completed; otherwise they shall be scored as misses.

  4. Upon completion of the first Standard Unit the pair of archers shall exchange positions. The archers who shot first will shoot second, the archers who shot on the left target face shall shoot on the right target face and vice versa. It will be the archer’s responsibility to move his/her target face to the changed position. Target faces may not be moved after the second Standard Unit has started.

  5. In the event that the two target faces are placed ‘over and under’ the pair of archers shooting first shall always shoot the bottom target face.
