CAID Archery Scores Page
Greetings CAIDian Archers!
I, the Minister of Archers, will be your faithful servant in keeping this site up to date along with Meister Jonathas, the creator of this site. If you believe your score is incorrect please search your name and check all of the scores submitted and the dates, sometimes the scores you were counting on are now over 12 months old.
The target used in the Royal Round is a standard, 60cm, five-color, round target face. The round consists
of an end of six arrows from each 40 yards, 30 yards, and 20 yards, with a 3 minute time limit. This is
followed by a 30-second *speed end, shot from 20 yards. There will be a sighting end of six arrows before
each slow end at 40, 30 and 20 yards. In some competitions, the sighting end may be eliminated or the
number of arrows reduced.
*speed end consists of as many arrows/bolts you can fire safely within 30 seconds.
Junior Royal Round
This Royal Round variant is used by Junior Division archers. The target and scoring will be done in the
same manner as for adult archers. The ends of the Junior Royal Round will be 8 arrows at 20 yards, 8
arrows at 15 yards, and 8 arrows at 10 yards. There will be no speed end for Junior Archers.
The Kingdom of Caid maintains a system for the ranking of archers. This is determined by the average of
that archer's three highest Royal Round scores in any of the recognized divisions during a twelve month
period. An archer may achieve separate ranks in each of the divisions. A rank, once achieved, is never
lost. Junior Division Archers use the average of their highest Junior Royal Round scores. Junior Division
rank will be preceded by the term "Junior". The ranks and score required are described below.
Score Rank Junior Division Rank
0 – 24 Novice Junior Novice
25 - 44 Bowman Junior Bowman
45 - 64 Yeoman Junior Yeoman
65 - 84 Forester Junior Forester
85 - 104 Bowmaster Junior Bowmaster
105+ Royal Bowmaster Junior Royal Bowmaster
Upon turning 15 years old, a Junior Division Archer must shoot as an adult to attain an adult rank. Junior
Division rank/scores may not be used in determining adult ranks.
Unless otherwise noted, scoring on a standard FITA 60cm target is from the center, outward, 5 (gold), 4
(red), 3 (blue), 2 (black), and 1 (white).
• Arrows which touch a black dividing line between colored rings are counted for the higher score.
• An arrow which bounces off or passes through a backstop and whose location cannot be verified
by other archers is given a value of three (3) points.
How are archery ranks determined?
The rank for adults age 15 and over is determined by averaging the 3 highest Royal Round scores during the 12-month period. The rank for youth age 15 and under is based on averaging 3 highest scores. Your rank carries over from one year to the next. You earn a separate rank for each type of bow you use. Please refer to the Kingdom of CAID Target Archery Handbook for more information.
