Lardy, if you right click on the link to the attached images in the upload pop-up box as soon as you've up-loaded, then click 'copy link location', click on and paste in the link then this happens..




You end up with the picture visible and the attachment link underneath. Mind you, it won't resize them.

Some nice pictures in that lot.

No, UKIFAC not really my bag to be honest... Shooting at roundels makes my eyes bleed! We, (Valley Bowmen) are hosting the UKIFAC in 2015 though. Should be interesting!
Are you heading to the Dunbrody 10 year anniversary shoot this coming weekend? 100 target course is going to be epic! Hog roast on the Saturday night, too!

A few pictures from the Irish Open 3D Championships. Picture quality in the woods wasn't great and the resizing has made them even worse. Sorry.

Khatuna Lorig has shot for her home country of Georgia, the USSR and, now, for the US.

USSR (1992), Georgia (1996-2000), USA (2008-2012)

A few pictures from the 2014 European 3D Championships.




















As can be seen from this selection of top archers, competitive archery is a sport for all ages.

Pictures from Stage 2 of the Indoor Archery World Cup held recently in Bangkok, Thailand. Stage 1 was held in Marrakesh, Morocco. The last two stages will be held in 2015, in Nimes and then Las Vegas. While indoor archery is a mental pressure cooker at this level, Vegas takes it to a whole new level.

The format is that Day 1 is a practice day and competition takes place on days 2 and 3. The indoor divisions for this discipline of archery are Recurve and Compound.

The first day of competition is 3 ends for warm up and then straight into scoring. The first days competition forms the Qualifying round and the top 32 archers in each Category (a combination of division and class, the age/sex classification so for example, recurve women, compound men) then go forward to the day 2 elimination rounds. Here, they are progressively reduced from 32 to 16, then 8,4 and 2 for the finals.

The distance is 18m. The number of arrows, 60, shot in ends of 3. Two halves of 10 ends are shot with a break in between.
Targets are the inner halves (6-10) of a 10 ring multi-colour target, 3 faces arranged in a vertical line- one arrow at each.
For compound archers the 10 ring is different to normal.
Whereas a recurve archer has a 9,10 and X ring in the yellow centre, the compound archer has a large 9 ring and only the very central-most ring, normally the X, counts as a 10.
For recurve, an X is scored as a 10 and the total count can be used in tie-breaks.

Maximum score is 600 in qualification.

The top mens recurve, Min Byeongyeon from Korea, shot 597. The next 12 archers were within 10 points of him and within a range of 0-5 points from each other.
The top ladies recurve, Sungeun Jeon from Korea shot 589. As did the tied second and third place. The difference between first and joint-second was an extra 10 shot. All three ladies shot identical scores in both rounds. Six of the top 8 ladies were from the Korean powerhouse.

The top mens compound, Mike Schloesser, shot 598. Second and third place shot 594, fourth and fifth shot 593, then 592 and 591 for sixth and seventh respectively. The difference here being that the top 7 archers were from either the Netherlands or the US. You have to look to 19th place to find a Korean. That won't last long. The Koreans are only recently competing in compound.

The strength of compound archery in the US was underlined also in the ladies class, with 5 of the top 9 shooting under US colours. First was Erika Jones with 587, followed closely by Toja Cerne of Slovenia with 586. Top Korean was 12th.

Once the top 32 are identified, the remainder of the competition takes a head to head format, shooting ends to win points to attain 6 or more points, with #1 shooting against #32, #2 against #31 and so on.

When the arrows ended, the mens recurve gold was taken by Im Jiwan who initially placed 17th, and beat fellow Korean Gye Donghyun into second. Brady Ellison came third and Jean-Charles Valladont fourth.
The ladies recurve final was won by Sungeun Joen of Korea, with Khatuna Lorig of the US in second. Third and fourth places also went to Koreans.

Braden Gellenthien (US) won the mens compound with Peter Elzinga (Ned) second. You have to look to 7th place to find a different country represented.

Erika Jones (US) continued well winning her category, Toja Cerne finishing in fifth place.

Full scores here.
