Tri-County Archery Club Cup



A series of 3D archery shoots at clubs representing local counties.


To foster the brother and sisterhood of archery between the clubs and their respective members.


Each club will add a special shoot to their schedule or decide which previously scheduled shoot will be used as their Tri-County Cup event. Each cup shoot should be a one day only event. No cup events will be scheduled on the same day.


Cup will be awarded to the club with the most over all cup points.

Cup Rules:

1. Each visiting archer is worth 1 cup point.
Visiting archer does not have to be an official “Member” of the club they are representing.
Example – John is a member of club A and shoots at club B. John brings 3 friends. John is worth 4 cup points.

2. Cup points only count for paying shooters.
Example – John is a member of club A and shots at club B. John brings 3 kids. Club B does not charge for kids shooting. John is worth 1 cup point.

3. Cup points only count for visiting archers.
​Example – John is a member of club A. John shoots at club A. John is worth 0 cup points.

4. Archers representing multiple clubs can choose which one they prefer to receive their cup points.

5. Host club will collect the names and total count of visiting archers as part of their archer registration process.
(We will make a uniform sign in sheet for us all to use.)
Names and numbers should be turned in by midnight on the day of the event.

​This page will be updated with the cup counts as totals come in.

Shoot Rules:

Each event will be a 3D archery shoot.
Target type, number of stations, yardages, classifications and scoring systems will all be the decision of each individual host club. Archers do not have to keep score. There are no score based awards.


A traveling trophy / plaque will be awarded to the winner and passed from club to club each year.

5 Common Archery Mistakes, and how to correct them.

5 common archery mistakes

From Archery 360 | February 13, 2015 | Staff Writer

If you’ve ever been to an archery class, you’ve probably heard someone ask, “Why aren’t my arrows hitting the middle?” Though every shot is a learning opportunity, it’s still a great feeling to hit a bull’s-eye, and it’s OK to want to hit the middle every time!

For arrows that don’t get #extramiddle, we’ll review five common archery mistakes that recurve archers face – and some ways to correct them.

5 Common Archery Mistakes, and how to correct them.

Archery by the Numbers. Measurements you should know.

2018-03-24_21-56-55Found on Archery 360 | By Scott Einsmann

Have you heard terms like draw length, draw weight and feet per second, but have no idea what they mean? These are common archery terms you should know when talking to other archers.

Articles, videos and tips from your archery instructor make more sense when you know archery lingo and the context of the sport’s terms. That knowledge also helps you seek advice from fellow archers because you’ll know how to talk their language.

The terms aren’t complicated. In fact, you’ll feel confident using them in conversation by the end of this article.

Archery By the Numbers, Measurements you should know.

Q&A – The Function of Arrow Wraps

What exactly is the function of arrow wraps? Can’t quite work out if they’ll be beneficial to your setup or not? Andrew Tippins explains!


An arrow wrap is a small piece of self-adhesive vinyl that is wrapped around the rear of the arrow to coat the shaft in a very low weight plastic sleeve. The primary function of an arrow wrap is to provide an excellent surface to fuse a vane to. It’s much easier to bond plastic to vinyl than directly to a carbon or aluminium shaft. If an archer decides to strip the arrows in the future they won’t have to scrape the delicate surface of the arrows to remove adhesive, possibly causing damage to the arrow.
