    Correct Answer
    C. Grasp the arrow with one hand close to the entry point into the target and withdraw with a slight twisting motion
    Explanation
    To remove arrows from a target butt, it is recommended to grasp the arrow with one hand close to the entry point into the target and withdraw it with a slight twisting motion. This method allows for a controlled and steady removal of the arrow without causing any damage or injury. By twisting the arrow slightly while pulling it out, it helps to loosen it from the target and makes the withdrawal process smoother.

      The scorer fills out 2 x sheets at the same time.

    • B.

      Two different archers do the scoring individually

    • C.

      The scorer takes the score sheet back to the club house post shoot and copies it neatly

    Correct Answer
    B. Two different archers do the scoring individually
    Explanation
    "Double sheet" scoring refers to a method where two different archers independently score the target. Each archer marks their own sheet with the points earned for each arrow. This method ensures accuracy and eliminates any potential bias or mistakes that may occur if only one person were to score the target.

  • 3. 

    If an archer shoots an arrow after the specified time or out of sequence, what is the penalty?

    • A.

      The archer will lose the highest scoring arrow of that end.

    • B.

    • C.

      Ten points are deducted from the archers scorecard.

    Correct Answer
    A. The archer will lose the highest scoring arrow of that end.
    Explanation
    If an archer shoots an arrow after the specified time or out of sequence, the penalty is that the archer will lose the highest scoring arrow of that end. This means that even if the archer had a high-scoring arrow in that round, it will not be counted towards their final score. This penalty is imposed to ensure fairness and adherence to the rules of the event.

    Rate this question:

    Correct Answer
    D. The archer signs to confirm that they agree with the values of the arrows.
    Explanation
    The archer has to sign the scorecard at the completion of the round to confirm that they agree with the values of the arrows. This ensures that there is no dispute or disagreement regarding the accuracy of the recorded scores. The signature serves as a confirmation of the archer's acknowledgment and acceptance of the recorded values.

    Correct Answer
    A. The archer and the scorer make the change and sign next to it
    Explanation
    If a mistake is made in an arrow value during a tournament, the archer and the scorer will make the necessary change and sign next to it. This ensures that the mistake is acknowledged and corrected by both parties involved.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    When can you remove your arrows from the target butt?

    • A.

      As soon as your arrows have been scored.

    • B.

      When all arrows for archers on the target are scored

    • C.

      As soon as you have a clear space to reach your arrows.

    Correct Answer
    B. When all arrows for archers on the target are scored
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "When all arrows for archers on the target are scored." This means that you can remove your arrows from the target once all the arrows from all the archers who have shot at the target have been scored. This ensures that everyone has had a fair chance to shoot and their scores have been recorded before the arrows are removed. Removing the arrows before all the archers have finished shooting and their arrows have been scored could disrupt the scoring process and lead to unfair results.

    Explanation
    Walking in from the side when approaching the target is the best way to prevent injuries when preparing to score. This is because walking directly in front of the target puts you at risk of being hit by arrows that may be protruding from the target. By approaching from the side, you ensure that you are out of the line of fire and reduce the chances of getting injured.
