Ever wonder about target faces? -Indoor

With the Indoor Nationals on the horizon I thought that a run down of the target faces you might be shooting at if you signed up for the indoor event. You have signed up haven't you? Taken from the World Archery site https://www.worldarchery.sport/sport/disciplines/indoor-archery It breaks down the different disciplines and the faces you shoot at:- Recurve Compound Barebow   

Targets

International target archery competitions feature archers using recurve and compound bows.

Archers in both competition categories shoot over a distance of 18 metres at smaller versions of the traditional five-colour target face with 10 concentric scoring rings, measuring 40 centimetres in diameter. However, the outer five rings are usually removed and each target consists of three separate spots so that the archer avoids damaging their arrows.

Recurve archers shoot at a target face measuring 40 centimetres in diameter with a 10-ring measuring 4 centimetres in diameter.

Compound archers shoot at a target face with identical proportions to the recurve face, except the 10-ring is halved in size, measuring 2 centimetres in diameter.

There are also international rules for archers using barebows.

Barebow archers shoot at a full-size, single-spot target face with all 10 concentric scoring rings, measuring 40 centimetres in diameter and a 10-ring measuring 4 centimetres in diameter.
