SYWAT OUTDOOR – AGGREGATE/TOUR CHAMPION AWARD
This goes to the top scoring shooter in their respective division and style for the SYWAT Outdoor Season. Prior to each season the TFAA Board will determine the number of SYWAT events required as a minimum to be eligible for the SYWAT Tour/Aggregate Award. This number of SYWAT events plus the first day of the TFAA State Field Championship will be added together to determine the SYWAT Aggregate/Tour Champion for each division and style. You can only win for one division and style. The Aggregate/Tour Champion award will be presented at the awards ceremony during the TFAA State Outdoor Championship.
SYWAT OUTDOOR – INDIVIDUAL AWARDS
Each individual SYWAT event is it’s own tournament. Winners for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will be recorded for individual award purposes. Individual awards will be created and made available for pick-up at the TFAA State Field Championship. The individual award is a single award listing the location and place for each individual event, where the individual actually placed. The last weekend before the State Tournament is not included in order to get awards ready in time for the tournament.
All TFAA awards are subject to the TFAA’s unit system. This system limits the total number of awards given out due to such a large combination of Divisions and Styles. Basically it means: 1st place is awarded if anybody shows up. 2nd place is only awarded when there are a minimum of 4 shooters. 3rd place is only awarded when there are a minimum of 7 shooters. This applies to all Divisions of shooters 18 and up. Divisions with minors 17 and under are exempt from this system and will be awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd places, where applicable.
