The format will be slightly different from the 2017 shoot. Counties will be asked to provide Compound and Recurve teams for the shoot in the morning. There will also be other non team archers on the field shooting in the Open WA720.
An individual Head to Head round will be shot in the afternoon, with the Open 720 round in the morning being the qualifying/ranking round.
More details will follow.
