The programme may be slightly altered depending on when the Saturday competition will end. There will be fewer disciplines and contestants as compared to last year. This is why participation is limited to invited individuals and the contest is not designed for the general public. Attendance of all other participants is subject to approval by the organisers. For up-to-date information, news and comments on the part of the organisers see the Organisers’ News section. In the Účastníci / Participants you may find an updated list of registered participants and the services they have ordered. You can also check on the progress in your registration in this section. Application forms and queries may be sent via the form in the Kontakty (Contacts) section or at When registering, please follow the procedure stated in the list of participants. The following data are required for registration: Surname and first name (or a nickname so we know who the person is); category depending on bow type; accommodation and number of nights you wish to stay; meals order. If you wish to bring other people to accompany you, it is possible to book accommodation and meals for them under the same conditions and in the same way.
