**The
50 Mt. Match Round consists of a
ranking round of 27 arrows at 50 Mt. on 122 cm face for all classes and
divisions, shot in order to divide all participants into Flights of 8 shooters,
independently from their class, and a Round Robin, also shot at the same
distance and on the same target face, of seven matches of 9 arrows in each flight, in order to determine the
podium positions for each flight.**

**In

**·
Divisions accepted: Recurve, Compound, Bare
Bow, Standard**

arrows each, total 63 arrows**

Ranking procedure: archers are ranked in each
Division by points, hits, gold's, X's
(as usual)**

**·
Archers are then repositioned on targets as follow:
archers ranked 1-4 to target one of
that division, archers 5-8 to target two and so on. **

**·
In case of tie in the ranking round for the
archers ranked 8/9, 16/17 etc. in each division, organizers will decide flight
assignment.**

**·
Assignment to flights and targets should
consider to have a minimum of 2 archers in one target and a minimum of 4
archers in one flight. That means that divisions with less than 4 archers will
not be eligible to compete, and that organizers will arrange at their
discretion the last 2 or more flights
in the ranking of each division in order to comply with said minimum.**

**·
In each flight, each archer will shot 7 matches
of 3 ends of 3 arrows each. **

**·
Matches will be shot in the following sequence
( considering target 1 and 2 as of the same flight):**

**A1-A2 B1-B2 C1-C2
D1-D2**

**A1-B2 B1-C2 C1-D2
D1-A2**

**A1-C2 B1-D2 C1-A2
D1-B2**

**A1-D2 B1-A2 C1-B2
D1-C2**

**A1-B1 C1-D1 A2-B2
C2-D2**

**A1-C1 B1-D1 A2-C2
B2-D2**

**A1-D1 B1-C1 A2-D2
B2-C2**

**·
Result of the matches will be decided by score,
hits, gold's and X's. Matches won will give 2 points, tied 1 point and lost 0
points. Byes will be given for matches without competitor, that will anyhow
score 0 points.**

**·

**·
Podium in each flight will be determined by the
total of the match points. In case of tie,
total cumulated score including the ranking round ( an then hits,
gold's, X's) will break the tie.**

**·
In total, each competitor will shoot 90 arrows
at 50 Mt. on 122 cm face, thus getting a Grand Total Score comparable to that
