Archery Canada Adopts 50m Barebow Target event in 2019

At the recent “World Archery” Congress held in ‘s Hertogenbosch, Netherlands on June 1-2, the decision was made concerning Barebow to become a new event in target archery. Barebow competitions will be shot at 50 meters on 122 cm target faces. The set system will be used for barebow match play.

The “World Archery” rule will officially come into effect in 2020, however Archery Canada has taken the decision to introduce this as a new event at the 2019 Canadian Outdoor Target Championships in Prince Albert, SK. We hope to see this new event grow in our Canadian system!
