Archery is new to the World Dwarf Games. Events include 18m crossbow and 9m recurve bow. Archers shoot 10 ends of 3 arrows and highest point total wins. Divisions include Junior (12-15 years), Open (any age), and Masters (35 & older). IDAF archery rules are adapted from International Archery Federation (FITA) rules (archery.org).
The WDG archery technical committee is chaired by Glen Bennett.
Sponsors and partners for the archery competition include the Easton Foundations, West Michigan Archery Center, and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, as well as our host facility the Demmer Center.
