3DA - UK National Series 2019 Competitions

 

The following is an explanation of the Competitions available at 3DA UK National Series Events in 2019.

 

Main Pro/Am COMPETITIONS:

Known Distance Competition (KDC) and Unknown Distance Competition (UDC):

Each of the Main Pro/Am Competitions, KDC and UDC, will consist of two rounds of twenty individual 3-D targets contested over a one or two-day period as determined by the Tournament Director.  Each round will be a “Shotgun” start.  When possible the Professional Classes competing in the KDC and UDC Competitions will culminate in a Pro Pressure Shoot Down for the top 5 archers. 

 

Rules Specific to Unknown Distance Competition (UDC):

In all Unknown Distance Competitions range finding is prohibited. All distances will be judged by the naked eye. No equipment, including but not limited to sights, binoculars, or spotting scopes will be used in a manner inconsistent with this prohibition. Using any part of the shooter’s body or equipment is prohibited, which includes “gapping techniques” that may also use equipment, or the “stepping off” of the distance to or from any target. 

 

Absolutely "NO FRAMING" methods are allowed. 

 

Shooters may carry “target cards” reflecting a picture or rendering of the specific targets being shot, but no marks or notations of any type may be made on these cards. In addition, the prohibition on marks or notations includes carrying, or making, any additional notes about distance or features of any target on a competition range. Exchanging target information with spectators or other shooting groups at any time during the tournament is strictly prohibited. Target information may only be discussed among members of a shooting group after all members of that group have shot the target. Violations will be referred to the Competition Committee and the first offense will result in disqualification of the shooter from the event.  A second offense will result in a suspension for the remainder of the tournament season with no refund of any entry fees paid.

 

Rules Specific to Known Distance Competition (KDC):

In all Known Distance Competitions ranges, distances may be provided by 3DA as measured within a one yard tolerance based on the equipment used. Shooters may elect to use range finders, but may not delay the time allowed and are required to share their information if requested by another competitor in their group. Shooters may carry “target cards” reflecting a picture or rendering of the specific targets being shot, but no marks or notations of any type may be made on these cards. In addition, the prohibition on marks or notations includes carrying or making any additional notes about features of any target on a competition range.

 

SHOOTER OF THE YEAR CHAMPIONSHIPS:

A.     Shooter of the Year Championship points will be awarded at the end of each event based on a combination of the competitor's final position and

        score.  At the end of the Season the Shooter's top three finishes will be used to establish their final Championship standing.  The more events
