The system made it's official competition débuted on February 6-7 at the Dring Sporthall in Zundert NED, during the NKB's Winter 20m Crossbow Finals.

The same installation (with 32 stands) will be used for the 30m events in Avon this August.

IAU World Championships 2008

Dear crossbow-shooting colleagues,

The IAU Executive Committee is pleased to announce that the 14th IAU World Championships will take place in Sulgen, Switzerland on July 7-10, 2008. The Swiss Crossbow Federation (EASV) will be in charge for this event. A special organization committee has been founded and Markus Roth (pictured above) was elected as the president of this committee.

The 30m Match Crossbow World Championships will be integrated with the 2008 Thurgau Crossbow Festival in Sulgen, Switzerland. The arrangements for the 10 meter competitions have not yet been finalized. But it will be either in Wil or in a special temporary shooting range close to the 30meter event.

With regard to the Field-division events, this discipline is still a relatively new sport in Switzerland and has its own small organization which is independent of the EASV. On their own they do not have the recourses to organize a world championship in 2008. However, the IAU Executive Committee is currently making efforts to put together a joint collaboration with one or more European Field-crossbow Federations that will result in a combined Match and Field Crossbow World Championships next summer. The Czech Federation has already made an offer of practical assistance to the Swiss Field Crossbow Federation. Further information will be announced during the next few weeks.

In the meantime we ask all members of the IAU Match and Field Divisions to reserve the dates July 7-10 in your dairies for 2008. Members of the WCSA are also cordially invited to partipate as guests.

The President of the 2008 World Championships Organizing Committee Markus Roth has already circulated an Invitation Letter and Preliminary Program for the 2008 World Championships to all IAU Members. Addition information is available by visiting the IAU World Championships 2008 homepages.

With best wishes,
IAU Executive Committee

IAU European Championships 2007


Following three months of intensive work by the Crossbow Union of Russia CUR, the Russian authorities have given their permission for the organization of the European Championships (IAU Field) in St. Petersbourg on September 17 to 23, 2007.

Pavel Kaszonyi, Chairman of the Field TC is currently making arrangements to visit St. Petersbourg at the beginning of April to meet with the championships organizing team which is lead by CUR President Mr. Alexander Verennia.Subject to approval of the championships venue and facilities by the IAU Technical Committee, the organizing committee will be sending the Official Invitations, Provisional Program and Entry Forms to all Member National Federations during April.The IAU Executive Committee regrets that it has not been possible to engage an Organizing Committee for the European Match-crossbow Championships in 2007. However, discussions have already taken place with potential Organizing Committees for combined Match and Field events in 2008 (World Championships) and 2009 (European Championships).

In the meantime, Member National Federations are asked to contact the IAU Secretary General
so that we can know how many Teams are able to take part in the Field-crossbow European Championships in St. Petersbourg.Please indicate the approximate numbers of shooters, and the name of your National Federation.

Kindly email your reply by MONDAY APRIL 2.

Match-crossbow Range Installations
On January 20, IAU Vice President Frans Fakkers met with members of the Netherlands Crossbow Association - NKB’s Technical Committee. The purpose of last month’s meeting was to discuss the development of mobile range installations for 30 meter Match-crossbow shooting.

Mobile ranges already exist in the Netherlands – but only for traditional 10 and 20 meter crossbow shooting. During the meeting, which took place in Zundert, tests were made to evaluate the system to see if it could be adapted for the international 30m discipline. The conclusion was that it would be possible. Such a system could be constructed from lightweight aluminium profiles, with the targets being electrically driven back-and -forth on rollers. This method eliminates the need for steel cables under strong tension (typically 600 kilos per cable) and heavy foundations. The mobile ranges already in use in the Netherlands are designed to be easy to erect with a minimum of labor. It is estimated that 30 sets of targets would require around 1000 kilos of aluminium section.

Following the meeting it was agreed that specifications and costings would be drawn up and the information made available for consideration by the IAU Executive Committee. Since the Netherlands Association is also in need of new 30 meter range facilities, NKB President Frans Fakkers will start negotiations with his national Department of Sport in an effort to obtain funding for development work.

The challenge facing the IAU is to find affordable ways to give mobility to 30 meter Match-crossbow events. When the IAU’s Match-crossbow World Championships came to England it involved transporting more that 140 tonnes of temporary range equipment from Austria.

It is hoped that the NKB’s project can provide a way forward for the IAU’s Match Division program in time for the 2008 season.
