Forest Archers is an archery club dedicated to many types of archery and since we are now starting all over again welcome new members our dues are yet to be determined but we will be competitive with neighboring clubs and have much to offer for family fun and competitive archers as well.
We plan on offering NFAA, FAA, ASA3D, and Olympic style settings and competition
Below are some of the types of archery we will offer at Forest Archers
ASA Style 3-D Archery: ASA 3-D archery features competitive rounds of lifelike, three-dimensional animal targets made of foam. The scoring rings are not always visible from the shooting stake and binoculars are allowed. Advanced archers must determine the distance to the target, pick a good aiming point, and execute the shot. .
Field archery events are a great way to enjoy the outdoors, hone your archery skills, and see how you rank against your competition. When you shoot a field archery event, you will shoot targets ranging from 20 feet all the way up to 80 yards.
Olympic Archery is use a recurve bow to propel arrows towards targets set 70 metres away. The targets measure 122cm in diameter, and have 10 concentric scoring rings, separated into five colours.
The inner colour, the gold, scores 10 or nine points. (The 10 measures 12.2cm in diameter.) The red scores eight or seven points, blue six or five points, black four or three points, white two or one point.
Athletes shoot 72 arrows, in ends of six, in a ranking round. The athletes’ total scores are used to rank the athletes from one to 64 and give each a seeding for the knock-out brackets.
American 900 Round is the similar to shooting three 300 Rounds in a row, except that each round of 30 arrows is shot at a different distance. The 900 Round is held at distances of 60, 50 and 40 yards, beginning at the farther distance and moving forward. Each distance consists of 5 ends of 6 arrows for a total of 30 arrows at each of the three distances. 30 arrows each shot at 60, 50 & 40 yards make for a total of 90 arrows with a possible perfect score of 900 points.
