The Outdoor Mailmatch consists of a series of World Archery 720 Rounds (Archery Canada 720 Round) (AC rules 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206) shot at multiple club locations across the country.
The Outdoor Mailmatch is an excellent opportunity for the archer who cannot get to any of the larger tournaments during the summer months but still wants to test his / her skills against competitors from across the country. It also gives the archer an idea as to how other archers are shooting by comparison. This competition also provides a great practice format for tournaments but under less stressful conditions.
The Outdoor Mailmatch will be open to competition from June 1 through to September yearly. Over the course of the competition individual archers may submit up to 18 scores, one scoring round per calendar week.
At the end of the competition only the top 6 scores will be used to calculate the average score for each archer. As long as 6 scores are received before the September 30th deadline you can be involved.
The Outdoor Mailmatch is like two competitions in one….first archer’s average scores will be ranked according to Archery Canada categories and equipment divisions where Gold, Silver and Bronze medals will be awarded in all recognized divisions.
Second, archers still have a chance to win a Gold medal if they place first in their Outdoor Mailmatch Class and have not won a Gold medal under the Archery Canada categories (these can be found under the Outdoor Mailmatch Rules).
More information can be found at the link provided on the Archery Canada website under Tournaments/ Outdoor Mailmatch. Or you can contact Darcy Dean, the Outdoor Mailmatch Coordinator.
Good luck and all the best to those competing!!!
