You will be required to sign the standard NAA waiver form upon check-in at the tournament.  Please review it now before you register- click here to view a copy of it.  Again, you do NOT have to print it now.  We will provide the signature form at the check in.

Please choose "fullsize 10 ring target face" or "3-spot 5ring target" at 30 meters. Due to improved quality of some shooters, 9-12 arrows in a single target can be destructive (arrows hitting arrows). FITA now allows individual faces at 30 meters, similar to the three-spot idea from indoors. The multi face will allow each archer at 30 meters to have their own individual target face, but scoring only goes out to the six-ring on individual face targets. In the case of the archer shooting a "5" or lower, no points are awarded when the target is a multiface/three-spot.  Please note that the rings are all the same size on both targets, the three spot just does not have scoring rings from "1" to "5" points.

10 ring:

5 ring multiface,
aka 3-spot:
