Special Faces

3 Sport vertical face FITA 3-spot vertical face

This face consists of a vertical arrangement of 3 targets containing the inner 5 rings of a standard face. It can be used for FITA 18 or FITA 25 rounds to prevent arrow damage, as only 1 person shoots at each individual target. Scoring is the same as for a standard face, but only scores of 6 or above are counted.

Vegas face Vegas face

As for the FITA 3-spot vertical face, contains the inner 5 rings of a standard face, but in a triangular rather than vertical arrangement. A single arrow is shot at each target per end. Scoring is the same as for a standard face, but only scores of 6 or above are counted.

Outdoor

Imperial

Imperial outdoor rounds are all shot on a 122cm standard target face using 5 zone scoring, where the gold is worth 9 points, the red is 7 points, blue 5, black 3, and the white gets you just the 1. In reality, the faces usually have 10 rings to allow them to be used for Metric rounds as well, but Imperial scoring is based only on the colour hit. During all Imperial rounds 3 arrows are shot per end, but you usually shoot 6 arrows before going to collect them to save time. The furthest distance is shot at first, working down to the closest, which is good because it tricks you into thinking you’re improving!
