The Caidan Open is a double-elimination Royal Round tournament-style competition. The rules are basic. Each archer is paired like a fighting event. The only scores of concern during each round are between the archer and their opponent. Sequence of shooting: each archer is allows 3 arrows for sighting at the 40-yard line. Range Marshal will instruct the archers to retrieve these arrows from the target butts and face only. Gleaning of other arrows is not permitted at this time. Six (6) untimed arrows will be shot for score at 40 yards. The Range Marshal will command the archers to score and record all 6 arrows at this time. The archers will move to the 30-yard line and shoot six (6) more untimed arrows for score. The Range Marshal will command the archers to score and record all 6 arrows at this time. Gleaning of arrows other than those on the target butt and face is not permitted at this time. Six (6) untimed arrows will be shot for score at the 20-yard line. The Range Marshal will command the archers to score and record these 6 arrows at this time. An archer with less than 12 arrows in his quiver may request permission from the Range Marshal to glean enough arrows to have 12 arrows in his quiver for the upcoming speed round. The Range Marshal will run a 30-second speed round at the 20-yard line. It will be scored and recorded.
