LMA Handicap League table 2011

This page show the league table for the Indoor Handicap shoots.

The Handicap is constructed to allow all archers to compete against each other on a level footing no matter their experience or the style they shoot.

Indoor Handicap shoots are £2 per person. There is a monthly shoot and prize. Each monthly score counts to a total end of year score for a shield.

The tables below will list the members taking part in the league and the scores as well as current position in the league and the previous position.

LMA Handicap League table Rules 2011

  1. The round is to be shot on the last Friday meeting of each month at the Leisure Centre with the award being presented to the winner at the end of that meeting.
  2. The round will consists of 10 ends of 4 arrows shot at a 35cm target from the normal shooting line.
  3. The scoring system is X (scored as a 5), 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and miss.
  4. The archer is to pay the shoot fee on the night before shooting commences.
  5. The archer is allowed a maximum of 2 practice ends of 4 arrows before scoring begins.
  6. Any round not completed once the shoot has started (including practice arrows) will be recorded as DNF unless failure to finish is due to an unrecoverable equipment failure.
  7. A handicap will be awarded once the archer has shot 2 qualifying rounds (to be shot before starting the handicap competition (no fee)) by calculating the average score then using the handicap table.
  8. Once an archer has been awarded a handicap it may be adjusted using the handicap tables after each shoot by calculating the average score (rounded down) between their current handicap score and the actual shot score.
  9. If an archer changes style, they are to shoot two qualifying scores (No fee) to create a new handicap for the new style. This must be done before the archer may re-enter the monthly handicap competition.
  10. If a archer misses a shoot they must catch up (this score is not eligible for the monthly award) before being eligible for the next months handicap competition, however they may shoot their score in advance which will be eligible for the monthly award.
  11. The winner of the monthly handicap award will have their handicap adjusted down by 1 additional point until a handicap of 1 is achieved.
  12. A handicap can go both up and down during the year.
  13. The archers handicap will be carried over from the end of one year to the start of the new year.

At the end of each year main awards will be presented to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in both the handicap adjusted and scratch score league tables.

2010 League

We have completed another year of the Handicap shoots ! All the scores are in and the winners are named below. The monthly winners were across a number of archers and it is interesting to see the range and the improvements of the scores as the year went on. .

Congratulations to the winners, as you can see it was a close run thing with Decembers weather delaying the final shoot due to the leisure centre being closed on the last week in December meaning we had to wait till now in January to get the final scores in.

The photos as promised !
