New Format for 2018 IBO Trad World Championship


New format for 2018 IBO Traditional World Championship, Pipestem, WV, July 20-22, 2018

 The IBO mission is to offer a true world class competitive event that also promotes fellowship of family and friends.

Beginning this year we will offer four shoot times to complete 30 IBO World championship targets. Shoot times will be 8:00 AM and 11:00am Friday and Saturday….shotgun start!

“Everyone" (except Cubs and Eagles) shoots final 30 targets Sunday, 8:00AM shotgun start. Awards immediately following. 

There are two, thirty target ranges ….A & B.

Classes shot on course A – REC, RU, TH, FREC, FRU, STRAD

Classes on course B – MLB, SLB, SB, LB, FLB, YU

Cubs & Eagles will shoot with their guardians on either course.

Also new this year:  

Archers may shoot 2 classes, (a class on each range), but may only choose one class/one bow to compete in on Sunday.

Bowhunter Challenge format stays the same.

In addition to the "Trad Tech Sadie Hawkins" Team Event, and the 3Rivers Showcase Shootdown event, we are excited to present a new event the "Last Man Standing".

In order to preserve the integrity of the sport of traditional archery, the IBO is continually striving to enhance our tournament format. We look forward to a fantastic event this year in West Virginia.
