It is a lot easier to score when you shoot all your arrows into the 5 ring :D. Then just count the 1 or 2 that are out of the X ring and you are on your way :) :D

Hey x-ring, can you put a picture like that up of a Vegas target? Everyone always talks about how to score it, inside out etc, but nothing beats a picture!

Huntdoc,

Here ya go....this is the score ring breakdown for the Vegas shoot.
Hi x-ring!

You mean the recurve-scoreing? In german indoor competitions compound archers only count the 'X' as 10 rings. The other yellows count 9.
Is there a difference to US-scoreing?
Another diiference: our trispots are in line.

Hermann,

The question specifically referred to scoring for the annual "Vegas" competion (held in Las Vegas, Nevada in the US every year). The target faces are 40cm 5-colour/10 ring like FITA faces, but in the Vegas round the "inner 10" ring (the FITA compound 10 ring) is counted as an "X" -- and a 10 at the same time.

This is used for both recurve and compound scoring at Vegas, unlike for FITA rounds where compounds score only the very inner ring as 10, but recurves score the "normal" 10 ring.

You will frequently see Vegas scores qoting the number total plus the "X" count, which is used to decide between numerically tied scores. For example: two shooters both with a numerical score of 600 (60 arrows, all within the "normal" 10 ring) but one has 59 X's (within the compound 10 ring) and the other has 58 X's, the former beats the latter. With FITA scoring these would be scores of 599 and 598, respectively.

If there is still a tie on X count, there's a shoot-off to determine the winner.

Vegas faces have the three spots arranged in a triangle (which I believe is also acceptable under FITA rules) as opposed to the vertically stacked 3-spot faces which are most commonly used here in Europe. The vertical ones are sometimes used in North America too, for FITA at least.

In the US we have 2 rounds and 2 targets with a gold center. Vegas target we all use the recurve outer-ten scoring. This has nothing to do with FITA.

In FITA competitons we use inner-ten (X) scoring since it is an international round and those are the rules in every country for FITA. We almost always use a triangular 3-spot except at World trials we use vertical because that is what they use at the world championships. Though I have heard rumors that we may be going to vertical 3-spots for FITA everywhere soon.
