2015 International Crossbow Festival at the Beach!
The ICF Organizing Committee has the full support of the city of Ft. Lauderdale, and we plan on having a representative from the Ft. Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau on site to assist with reservations and scheduling of individual social activities and excursions.
Due to the nature of the event and the large number of hotels in the area hotels with the best rates will be listed both near the venue as well as at Ft. Lauderdale beach. It is highly recommended to check internet rates but also calling the hotel may give an even more attractive off season rate. There is plenty of parking at the club too for those who will be driving cars.  
he National Crossbowmen of the USA, Inc. / USA Crossbow would like to announce the organization of the International Crossbow Festival at the Beach to be held at the Ft. Lauderdale Archery Club in Ft. Lauderdale FL in July 2015.

The International Crossbow Festival (ICF) is open to All crossbow enthusiasts worldwide, schedule is from July 11, 2015 through July 19th, 2015, and features competition in Outdoor 900 rounds, Match Play, Sport Field/Animal/3D, Bench Rest competition, Medieval shooting, an Indoor Money tournament, and more events to be announced.  The World Crossbow Shooting Association's 7th World Crossbow Championships will be conducted as part of this Festival.

Address for the ICF is:  4590 Peters Road, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida  33312

Also included during the ICF will be a Crossbow Vendor Trade Show. We expect the majority of crossbow manufacturers to come on board as sponsors and further information on sponsorship levels and opportunities for those manufacturers are included on this site.  We are encouraging Manufacturer Demo Days and will provide further updates on that as we get closer to the ICF.  As you can see from the above logos, more and more manufacturers are signing up for the ICF.

We would like to offer Seminars on different crossbow topics and will have more information on this in future updates.  These may be given by crossbow manufacturers or representatives of the various crossbow organizations.  A Crossbow Flea Market is also scheduled for those participants who want to sell their crossbow related items.  Many social events will be held both at the club after shooting as well as at venues around Ft. Lauderdale Beach.  

Target Crossbow competition in outdoor 900 rounds will be open to target, sport and medieval crossbows.  The TC900 is a 90 bolt round competed at different distances for the target crossbow division, and the TC600 60 bolt round will be competed in with Sport and Medieval crossbows.  This will be shot for the7th WCSA World Crossbow Championships and the TNC Outdoor National Championships.  The Festival can accommodate a 72 position competition field for 900 round shooting.























                                                                                                                                               Outdoor Target competition venue

A single elimination WCSA MatchPlay competition will follow the TC900 and TC600 rounds and finish rank from that competition will be the rankings for the MatchPlay.  Match Play consists of 3 ends of 3 bolts each distances based on crossbow division on a 60cm target face, this is a single elimination competition with the winner of each match advancing to the next match.

An Indoor competition at 18M is planned, 60 bolts on a 40cm full color target face and 60 bolts on the 25cm full color target face over 2 days.  A money division will be offered in addition to the ICF medal completion.  This venue can accommodate 30 shooting positions.  In South Florida, indoor shooting is conducted outdoors.

3D Competition will be held on the (3) 20 target 3D ranges at the club and is being sponsored by Carbon Express crossbows! Considering the different 3D rules in place around the world, the ICF Organizing Committee has reviewed those existing 3D rules and made some modifications for the ICF in order to better accommodate all shooters. ICF medals will be awarded for the 3D competition. Target and medieval equipment is welcome and there are 2 major equipment classes for the sport/hunting crossbow division, Standard and Freestyle, please refer to the ICF 3D rules at3D Competition below for rule clarifications.























                                                                                                                                   3D venue at Ft. Lauderdale Archery Club

Forest competition will be shot on the club’s 28 target field course.  Target spot as well as Animal rounds are being considered.  This competition is part of the 7th WCSA World Crossbow Championships so WCSA rules will be in effect.  Please refer to the WCSA rules at www.worldcrossbow.com 

Benchrest competition will be shot at 70M under WCSA rules as a 60 bolt round at a 40cm single spot full color target face. This covered range can accommodate 5 benchrest stations. Benchrest shooting under WCSA rules is shot in either the sitting position from a table or the prone position. Since this will be the first time that benchrest shooting has been shot at the world level, it will be shot as a demonstration sport. This competition will take place over the course of the ICF and participants can sign up for a shooting time. ICF medals will be awarded. The 5 benchrests have been secured so each shooter will have a choice of which one to use for sitting or prone shooting.

Medieval outdoor shooting takes place with 30 bolts each at 20, 30, and 40 Meters on a 60cm full color target face.  This competition will be part of the WCSA World Crossbow Championships so WCSA Medieval crossbow shooting rules will be in place.  Period dress is acceptable.  For more details on the medieval shooting division rules please review the WCSA Shooting rules available at www.worldcrossbow.com

For certain events there may be equipment inspections where that event warrants it. As example, for the WCSA World Championship events. Events with multiple crossbow divisions may also have equipment inspections. Note that it is a requirement that all competitors use an Arrow Lube on their arrows due to the high powered crossbows, humidity and the target foam. Arrow Lube makes extracting your bolts from the targets much easier.

The Ft. Lauderdale Archery Club is located 6 miles from Ft. Lauderdale Beach.  The club is large enough to handle most of the above competitions simultaneously and offers an outdoor pavilion with cooking facilities on site for after shooting social activities.
