Attending a Competition


Attending a Competition


The number one rule about arriving at a competition is to arrive early so you don’t have to rush. Sign in with the tournament director, find out your lane assignment (where you will be shooting), and review any rules you might have questions about. This includes who to turn to if there is a scoring dispute (an event judge) and where to take your scores when you are finished shooting. At many tournaments, you have to have your equipment inspected by the event judge ...

Before you buy: Bow styles, parts of a bow, and draw length


Before You Buy


Bows come in the following three basic styles:

  • Longbow: The longbow is usually made from a single stick of material. It is straight when unstrung and forms a simple backward curve when strung.
  • Recurve bow: Similar to the style of bow shot in the Olympic Games, the recurve bow has elongated limbs that, when strung, curve backward near the riser and then curve forward (recurve) at the tips. This bow has a smoother draw and release than a longbow does.

The differences Between High School and College Learning

The differences Between High School and College Learning


One of the most exciting, and sometimes intimidating aspects of starting college is the realization that college-level work is more challenging than what you experienced as a high school student. In college, the majority of your learning time is spent outside of the classroom, and you - not your teachers - are primarily responsible for what you learn. Recognizing how high school and college learning differ can help you develop strategies for success so that you can meet these new expectations.

Traditional, Target, Field, and 3D Equipment Setups


Equipment Setups


In archery each setup is unique and suited to a particular type of competition. Four commonly used setups are traditional, target, field, and 3D.

Traditional archers use the bare minimum of equipment (figure 3.6). The traditional archer prefers to shoot barebow because it lacks any sights or accessories. This type of archer shoots the arrow right off the shelf of the bow with the fingers. Some traditional archers shoot with a regular finger tab like other archers; others wear ...

Bust, Boom, Hope: NFL

Bust: The San Diego Chargers may try to block a team’s relocation to Los Angeles because of the impact it would have on their business.
