First Dakota Classic

Register here for the final leg of the NFAA's 3 Star Tour.

Join us on the final leg of the 3 Star Tour: June 10-12, 2016. The First Dakota Classic is an indoor distance tournament featuring the NFAA Classic round and is a money shoot, guaranteeing 70% payback in all Flight and Championship categories. 2016 offers payout guarantees in all Championship and Flight divisions. Register prior to May 31, 2016 to take advantage of the early registration rate. 

NEW! The First Dakota Classic will feature a qualification round, followed by head-to head eliminations. The qualification round will be the NFAA Classic 600. Participants can choose to shoot their qualification round on either Friday or Saturday (based on availability). The round will consist of 4 ends of 5 arrows shot at 3 distances, beginning with the closest distance. 4 minutes allowed for each end. The target will be the 6-ring center spot of the 92 cm WAF target face with gold-red-blue, etc. (10 through 6) scoring areas. The X ring will be used as a tiebreaker. Cub distances will be 10-20-30 yards, Youth distances will be 30-40-50, and Young Adult/Adult/Senior distances will be 40-50-60 yards. Distances and target face used in head-to-head competition will be the same as the qualification round. Adult head-to-head will be 3 ends of 5 arrows at 50 yards.

Participants may enter one division and category. You will remain in the same division the entire tournament. The number of entries in that division will determine the number participants in each Flight or Head-to-Head bracket.

Please note, a Second Chance Tournament will be held outside. Please make sure you bring any additional equipment required for your outdoor setup. Distances and target face used in the Second Chance Tournament will be the same as the ranking round.

One of the highlights of the First Dakota Classic is the $10,000 Shoot Off. Any archer that competes in all 3 Star events qualifies for the Classic Shoot Off. New! for 2016, all amateur participants will be competing in the Classic Shoot Off for a $5,000 guarantee. If the amateur winner continues on to win the entire Shoot Off, they will win a total cash prize of $10,000. Please see rules for details on amateur status.
