The Host Club must register the Canadian Regional Indoor Regional Tournament with Archery Canada as a tournament registered for Canadian Records (Reg AC). As with regular tournament registrations, Regional Indoor sites will be subject to the Archery Canada registration fee. The Host Club may also register the tournament for World Records (Reg WA/AC) for an additional fee. In the dropdown menu select ‘National Championship’.
While it is hoped to use ianseo for the Regional Indoor at some point, we are not there yet, so Regional Indoor Coordinators will have to enter the results to both the Regional sheet and the ianseo program. Competitors will not be listed in the Archery Canada ranking system if they are not listed again in the Archery Canada Ianseo scoring program.
When completing the registration form the Host Club must ensure that in the Name field the first word of the name of the tournament is Regional Indoor Site, e.g. Regional Indoor Site Victoria Bowmen 18M. There is also a check box for the Regional Indoors
