Well folks, most of the information is up above there for you! We’re hosting the IFAF Field Nationals this year, and we’re looking to make it a good one! We’re getting four different record rounds ready to go for you, so you’re not going to want to miss out on this intense weekend of shooting! Take note though, only the Field & Hunter rounds are for the championship – the others are just for the craic!

Day 1, we’re starting off strong with two shoots. In the morning, depending on whether or not you use a sight, you will be shooting either field or hunter. Then, in the evening, we’ll have a 1 arrow round set up for you to have a go at, and give you a chance to shoot some 3Ds over the weekend.

Day 2, we’re gonna keep it light with just the one shoot, the opposite to whatever you did the day before. We need the time to give out all that silverware you’ll be bringing home with you!

Day 3, just for a bit of fun, we’re doing a Marked Animal Round, for anyone whose muscles aren’t in bits by that point. We won’t blame you if you aren’t able for it – but anyone who does gets ultimate bragging rights!

Shooting every day begins at 10am, so make sure to be there for 9am to allow for registration, set-up, bow check, and of course chatter!
