Notice Important Changes!!!
At the Annual Meeting of the National Field Archers
Association (NFAA) this past February, changes were made in both shooting
Divisions (age) and shooting Styles to begin effective June 1st. Unfortunately
timing is everything and OBH was unable to make the changes for our Indoor
Tournaments. As stipulated in the Oregon Bowhunters Bylaws, our OBH
tournaments need to align with NFAA with regards to Divisions and Styles.
These new changes mainly involve the adding new age divisions and expanding the
shooting styles to certain age divisions.
How does this effect you? The main impact is to those of
you who wish to participate in the annual Triple Crown Awards. You must
remain in the same shooting Style for all three OBH State
Championships to be eligible. If you should decide to shoot in one of the
new shooting Styles now being offered, you will not be
eligible for the Triple Crown awards. We will track the previous age
Divisions through remaining two events and award the Triple Crown based on
the Divisions shoot at the Indoor Championship.
Here is a summary of the new
Senior age has dropped to 50+ from
Added new Silver Senior 60+
Master Senior age has increased to 70+
Adult age stays at 18+
Master Senior, Silver Senior,
Senior Divisions can shoot all styles (previously M/S was limited to FS,
FSL & BB). Remember if you enter a new shooting style you will not be eligible
for the Triple Crown.
Young Adult, Youth & Cub added
the BHFS style (remember if you enter this shooting style you will not be eligible
for the Triple Crown)
Next year (2014) OBH plans to offer the new shooting
Divisions and Styles for the Triple Crown Awards.
If you have
concerns with the new changes by NFAA, please direct these suggestions to officers, directors and councilmen
of the NFAA. The OBH NFAA director is Mike Thomas at Foothillsdental@hotmail.com.
