Hello Fellow Archerombies,
Westerly winds must be due as the Exhibition is about to start.

Here are some events for mounted archery in case you like archery and
horses or mobility scooters
– *Single Shot:* A one target run on a 120 meter course, and you are
timed from the starting line to the finish line. The target is placed at
the 90 meter mark. You have 15 seconds to finish the course, and are
deducted 1 point for every second you go over the time limit.
– *Fast Shoot (Double Shot):* A two target run on a 120 meter course,
and you are timed from the starting line to the finish line. The first
target is placed 60 meters from the starting point, and is angled towards
the start, making it a forward shot target. The Second target is placed
about 25 meters after the first, and is angled away from the starting
point, making it a back shot. You have 15 seconds to finish the course, and
are deducted 1 point for every second you go over the time limit. If you
hit both targets you are awarded a 3 point bonus.
– *Serial Shot:* A 5 target run on a 160 meter course. The first target
is placed 30 meters from the starting point, and every target after is
placed at 30 meter intervals. All targets are side shots. You have 20
seconds to finish the course, and are deducted 1 point for every second you
go over the time limit. If you hit all five targets, you are awarded a 5
point bonus. If you do not hit at least 3 targets, you are disqualified
from that run.
– *Mogu**:* One person pulls a Mogu ball (a wicker/bamboo ball frame
about 60cm in diameter, covered in a sturdy cloth sack, on a rope about 30
meters long) on horseback, while another person follows and shoots blunted
arrows (usually 2 arrows) to hit the ball. This is done on an open course,
usually at least 100 meters long and 50 meters wide. The ball chaser is
allowed to shoot forward, side, and back, depending on where the ball is.
Marks on the ball are scored by how many times, and how well you were able
to hit it. An accurate shot making a large splat on the ball, is worth 5
points. A grazed hit with a small splat is worth 3 points. Then a slightly
grazing shot with no definite ink splat is worth 1 point. Making no contact
with the target is 0 points. The course has no time limit, but is timed in
case there is a tie.
