The annual Pacific Northwest Shoot-up Tour is a multi-leg indoor archery tournament held primarily in Oregon, Washington and Idaho during the winter months.
Archers must shoot a Vegas 300 qualifying round during each leg of the tour to continue. Multiple shooting times are sometimes offered to archers based on the size of the hosting venue. Scores are posted from top-to-bottom after the completion of qualification rounds and shooters are then divided into equal flights with no more than 14 shooters per flight.
The shoot-up rounds will determine the winners of each leg. The shoot-up is a one-on-one elimination series consisting of two ends on a Vegas target, with an arrow for arrow shoot-off to break any ties. The shooter with the lowest score in each flight will shoot against the person with the next highest score and so on. The Shoot-up will continue until all places in each flight are established and cash prizes will be awarded at the conclusion of each stage to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in each flight. All flights with exception to the championship flight, will be paid equally with the payouts determined by a percentage formula. An amount will also be withheld from the each flight to enhance the prize pool for the Grand Final shoot-up.
Archers are required to shoot in at least three stage events in order to qualify for the grand final shoot-up, which will be held at Chinook Archers on Jan 25, 2014. The qualification scores from each of the three legs are totaled and used to determine ranking and flights for the final shoot-up. The archers three highest qualification scores will be used in the final shoot-up if they have competed in more than three events.
