If you are running a competition with multilpe sessions of shooting, there are things you should do between different groups of archers shooting.
- First ensure all
archers who have finished competing have completed their scoring, signed and
handed in their score cards.
- Then, get all
finished archers to clear their kit as soon as possible, and make space for
incoming archers to set up their kit.
- During this
time, your club helpers should rotate the bosses (especially important on
bosses which compounds have been shooting on), and replace shot target faces
with new ones for the next session.
- Have a member of
your club available to guide the finisher archers to any facilities for
- Ensure new score
cards are put out for this session.
- You should allow
at least half an hour for all of this.
- During the
follow sessions, club helpers can process score cards. This involves:
- Checking all
score cards have been signed. If they are not signed, they are not legal, and
as such, not eligible for the competition.
- Check the
addition on each card and all fields have been filled in.
- Compile a list
of archers in score order (remembering to separate novice, females, teams,
other bow disciplines etc…), allowing space for subsequent sessions (this is
obviously easiest on some form of spreadsheet).
