PRA Tournament Trophies

 

PRA annual trophies are awarded to PRA members at our Annual Awards Banquet, which is usually held in February. Trophy winners are determined by scores collected during the Calendar year, from January 1st through December 31st. 1st through 3rd place trophies are awarded for each type of tournament PRA hosts, and for each NFAA recognized bow style as well as age category. Archers must complete the minimum number of each tournament type during the calendar year they would like to be eligible for. The minimum number of completed tournaments required varies based on the frequency PRA hosts each type of tournament:

Field Rounds and/or Hunter Rounds: 3
300 Rounds: 3
720 Rounds: 3
900 Rounds: 3
3D Rounds: 3

Please note that the requirement is per bow style (per year). For example, if an archer shoots two 300 rounds with an Olympic Recurve bow, and one 300 round with a longbow, he or she is not yet eligible for any awards for 300 rounds. He or she must shoot at least another 300 round with an Olympic Recurve bow, and another two 300 rounds with a longbow to be eligible for trophies in those two bow categories.

Perpetual Trophies
In addition to the above mentioned tournament trophies, PRA has several “Perpetual” trophies that PRA members who compete in tournaments are also eligible to win. PRA Perpetual trophies bear the names of every winner throughout the years, and each year’s winner gets to keep the trophy for one year, until the next winner is determined. The winner also receives a corresponding plaque that they get to keep.
