Attention: JOADs and Seniors 

The Iron Archers Tournament Series consists of

three FITA I, 600 rounds and 

Round Robin match play on the 4th date.

USA World Indoor Trials Registration and Info Link

How is the Round Robin seeded and how is it going to run?

  • Qualifying awards will be given to the top three archers per category based on the total of the three - 600 rounds.  Awards are plaques.

  • Only the two best 600 rounds will be used for ranking for the round robin.  As a result you can miss one of the 600 rounds for whatever reason.

  • For the Round Robin, there will be three flights of 8 archers each based on the qualifying scores. 3 flights x 8 archers = 24 archers

    • An Iron Archer winner from each flight will be determined by the greatest point total of two best qualifying rounds, plus match points, plus bonus points.  Winning a match is worth 2 bonus points.  There will be seven round robin matches.  A 12 arrow match is 4 ends of 3 arrows. All archers within a flight will play all the other archers in that flight.

    • All archers regardless of age, gender or bow type will be seeded based on their best qualifying score. 

    • The top 8 scorers will be in one flight, the middle 8 scorers in the second flight and the lower 8 scorers in the third flight.  This approach should keep the match play competitive since similar shooters will be matched. 

    • Remember that compound will be shooting the inner ten and recurve the outer ten, regardless of their opponent's bow type.

    • Round Robin match play will be shot on the 3 vertical spot target so there is no top or bottom advantage.

    • The above description of round robin bonus points is tentative waiting on the final NAA Indoor Trials process to be published.

STORY by Bob Pian


Qualifying Rounds

Three 600 rounds every other Saturday leading up to the Round Robin Matches in mid December.The matches were registered NAA 600 qualifying rounds for those wanting to record them.

Women Compound

    1st Robyn Repp, 2dn Mackenzie Kieborz, 3rd Margie Ortega

Men Compound

Round Robin Day

There were three flights, Bronze, Silver and Gold

Bronze and Gold flights each had 6 archers,

The Silver flight had some no shows, only three competed.

Each flight had five matches each.

The Iron Archer Champion was based on the cumulative score of the archer’s best 1200 qualifying score plus the match points plus 2 bonus points for winning a match.

There were five matches decided by the one arrow shoot of method.  One match took three arrows to decide.


The Gold Flight saw Robyn Repp and Brady Ellison going head to head with Brady coming from behind as the #2 seed to win the championship.

Third place in the Gold flight was very competitive with all within a few points of each other through out the matches make the match win bonus point very important.


The Silver Flight had Mike Hansberry as the top seed with a six point lead over second seed Steven Weaver.

After the last match, Steven had closed the gap to three points, not quite enough.

Mike Hensberry won the Silver flight for the second year in a row.


Bronze Flight number one seed was Mackenzie Keiborz.

#2 seed Nick Carlisle and #3 seed CJ Fulroth took on the challenge with some great shooting on 10 ring targets.

CJ won the Bronze Flight.
