Archers score in groups of four and score on tablets and on paper to make sure scores are accurately recorded. Once three whistles blast, archers can proceed to the targets and score their arrows. Targets are scored from ten to one, the very center being the highest score on the target. Archers must mark the arrow holes every end in case any arrows bounce out so they can be called.
