The Buckeye Team Trophy is a new award starting in 2023. We've revamped this back to resembling the heart of the original team round format. The purpose of this format is for a shop/club/business to sponsor shooters that you want to represent you. Also, for the archer, it serves as a reward for frequenting and supporting your business/shop/club. This would garner more attention, create awareness, showing you support your shooters but also promote a sense of pride and accomplishment for your group/shop/club/business.
OAA found that the team round had evolved into selecting random shooters that would provide the highest combined X count for that particular shoot and had gotten away from any logical team round format. So, we've put together the following new team rules/format. This replaces the 4-Person Team format you've seen in the past.
The winning Team will be awarded a trophy at year end and will have "bragging rights" for (1) year until it is awarded to the next years winning team. There will be (1) Team trophy to proudly be displayed at the shop/club/business and then (5) smaller trophies to be awarded to each of the Team members. This will be awarded at the end of the year at the 900 Round event.
Each Team must consist of (5) archers of mixed classes, ages, and gender to create diversity and promote competition of all ages. A team consisting of (5) archers will help all signed up teams stay in the hunt for the Buckeye Trophy, should 1 of the Team members not be able to shoot at one of the 4 required events. Each Team that is registered should be named or sponsored by a shop/business/club. A shop/business/club can sponsor more than one Team. The archers on the Team should be shooters that support that shop/business/club and are sponsored by such.
Registrations for the 5-Person Teams must be done prior to March 9th, 2023, in writing (attached form) to be approved prior to the first scored event. (Which is the Indoor 300 Championship on March 11th, 2023)
