National Triple Crown Presentations
The National Championship awards will be presented at Cardinal Shooting Center immediately following the awards for the third leg of the Triple Crown. Both ceremonies will take place Sunday, July 15th after 1:00 PM when ranges are closed, scores are entered and shoot-offs are complete.
This represents a change from our previous schedule that presented the National Championship awards at the World Championships in Seven Springs. Our decision to make this change came after discussions between members of the rules committee and Triple Crown representatives over concerns about making our National Champions wait for their recognition. These concerns have been discussed between committee members since the idea to move the awards was debated during our Spring Board meeting. Although our intentions were to make a grand presentation at the World Championships in front of a larger crowd, we decided it would be best for our National Champions to receive the most prestigious award in 3D archery at the time of the event.
This change affects only the overall National Championship awards and does not change any other awards schedule. The practice of presenting individual shoot awards at the following event will be discussed at our Fall Board meeting after evaluating the attendance and success of those individual presentations. As always, your input as IBO members is welcomed. The proper way to express your opinions is to address the board in writing prior to the Fall Board meeting at the end of August.
