This year’s Valentine Tournament will be held at Pool Academy Sports Hall on Sunday 16th February. We will be shooting a Vegas round in the morning and a Worcester in the afternoon. A Vegas is 5 dozen arrows shot at a special target face with three spots, the idea being that you shoot one arrow into each. Please be aware that your arrows need to be numbered. The targets are numbered 1, 2 and 3, and the rule is that you put numbered arrows in ascending order into each target. So targets 1, 2 and 3 have arrows 1, 2 and 3, or arrows 2, 4 and 8, whatever, as long as they are in ascending order so that everyone can be sure you haven’t missed the target you are aiming at and accidentally scored in another one. Arrows should be marked permanently on the shaft, not the fletching. You can buy decals or wraps from archery suppliers, or a silver pen generally works quite well.
The Worcester is a black target with a white centre that scores 1 to 5. You shoot five arrows each end rather than the usual three.
