You are taking both scorecards with you when you have completed the Pin Shoot. Ace Archers will NOT be collecting the score cards from the archers.

The Challenge Round is a head-to-head fun shoot. You will be shooting at the same distance and target face as you did during the Pin Shoot. Each Challenge Round is 3 ends and winners are determined by cumulative score. If there is a tie, then single arrow shoot-off will resolve all ties and single arrow shoot-offs are performed until a winner is determined. There will be 6 Challenge Rounds.
