Terms & Conditions
BASIC TOURNAMENT GUIDELINES AND TERMS & CONDITIONS OF ENTRY
*Any archer (8yrs and over) who is a fully paid member of an archery club (or independent) can submit their entry for the Portsmouth shoot – archer’s name and relevant contact details, archery number, club details, bow type etc must all be submitted at the time of entry. However, acceptance of the entry is at the full discretion of Aim4sport
The Permission form will need to be produced on the day of the shoot, completed in full and signed by parent/guardian. Failure to produce the completed form will mean the jnr will not be able to shoot..
Archers wishing to shoot “outside of their age range” (ranges specified on the entry form) should please take note of the following:
• If an archer wishes to shoot an “older age-range round” there are specific rules relating to the issuing of medals and trophies:
- Archers 8-13yrs entered in the 14-18yrs age category will be entered as if they were 14-18yrs old.
- Archers 14-18yrs entered in the “adult” Portsmouth round will be entered as if they were an adult (18yrs and over).
- If an Archer choose to enter a “younger age-range round” he/she will not be eligible for a medal or trophy for that round.
Entry fee, withdrawals, refunds, replacements
- As per Archery GB accepted National Standards: no refund will be given to an archer who withdraws his/her entry after the closing date (unless there are mitigating circumstances).
- An archer withdrawing from the shoot has the right to submit the name of an alternate archer to take his/her place^.
- If the archer withdraws when the shoot is full and/or it is after the closing date, the alternate archer’s name must be submitted in the same email/letter as the cancellation – otherwise the position will be immediately offered to another archer (if there is a waiting list).
- If an archer withdraws and submits the name of an alternate archer, it is the responsibility of those two archers to resolve the entry fee issue between themselves.
- All withdrawals / cancellations must be submitted in writing/email by Thursday 8th November to the tournaments organiser using the email address on the entry form.
- Archers who do not turn up on the day of the shoot and who have not submitted their written withdrawal will not be entitled to a refund (unless there are mitigating circumstances).
- Acceptance into the competition is at the discretion of the Aim4sport organising committee and the club reserves the right to refuse entry.
To Photographers: Photography is permitted only if the archer, or person taking the photographs, submits their name and contact details before the shoot, and/or completes the “photography register” on the day of the shoot.
To Archers: Please be aware that photographs may be taken during the day (photographers will be registered) – if you have any issues with this, please speak to the tournament organiser on the day OR directly to the photographer to ensure that any issues can be avoided and/or resolved.
All people attending the tournament (archers, spectators etc) will be expected to behave correctly throughout the duration of the shoot. We, as a club, encourage a friendly atmosphere and do our best to ensure everybody (archers and spectators) enjoys their day. Laughter, encouragement and even some friendly rivalry is to be expected but we will not accept bullying, mocking, intimidation or abusive language aimed at anyone.
To ensure that the results process goes as smoothly as possible, please ensure that your score card is clearly legible, that the totals are written correctly (and double-checked) before signing – and that both the archer and the scorer have signed the score sheet. If these are not done, it will only cause added delays. Scores will be collated at the end of the shoot and the Provisional Results will be read out – please note that due to time restrictions the accuracy of the provisional results may not be 100%. We do our best to try to ensure that they are as accurate as possible, but this is not always possible. During the week after the event, all scores will be double-checked and the FINAL results will then be issued (usually around a week-or-so after the shoot).
We do not give back your score cards so if you wish to keep a copy for your own records, please keep track of your score during the shoot. If, however, you were unable to keep track during the shoot, you can request a copy to be emailed to you after the results have been issued.
BY SUBMITTING YOUR NAME ON THE ENTRY FORM (OR ALLOWING SOMEONE ELSE TO SUBMIT YOUR NAME ON THE ENTRY FORM) THIS MEANS THAT YOU ACCEPT AND WILL ABIDE BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF ENTRY.
