Albion: Gavin Sutherland, Oliver Johnson, Paul Kennard, Will Camp, Stuart Judd, Lloyd Mitchell
Windsor: Frank Hollis

Sunburn League Round 2 Results

Sunday, 22 June 2014 19:25

Today saw Round 2 of the Sunburn League take place and once again the weather came out for us with the sun beating down on us all day long.

Whilst we all sweltered in the heat we once again shot either a Junior National, National or Long National. With 21 competitors on 7 targets the shooting line was full of archers looking to see if they could better their previous scores or a classification score, indeed 13 archers did shoot a score that will count towards their classification.

If you didn't shoot in Round 2 or in Round 1 it's still not too late to enter. Round 3 takes place on July 20th and as we recommend shooting in at least 3 rounds you still have enough time to enter and stand a chance of winning a trophy at the end of the year. If you want to enter round 3 please e-mail Oliver Johnson to book your place.

Below are the scores for Round 2

The Sunburn League kicked off today and certainly lived up to it's name with the weather being glorious, suntan lotion needed and with perfect shooting conditions.

25 members of the club turned up to shoot in three rounds, Junior National, National & Long National and for many this was their first tournament of any kind.

Everyone shot really well and said that they very much enjoyed the day and all are already looking forward to Round 2 on June 22nd. If you didn't enter Round 1 you can still enter. You can shoot as many or as few rounds as you like although we recommend that you shoot in at least 3 in order to stand the greatest chance of winning one of the cups at the end of the year. Whether you shot in Round 1 or not, if you want to shoot in Round 2 please contact Oliver Johnson to book your place.

Sunburn League

Wednesday, 26 March 2014 11:19

Many club members have said that they wished that there was an equivalent of the Frostbite League that runs over the summer months.

Well we are delighted to say that we will be running such a league every month between May and September and which we are calling The Sunburn League.

Unlike most other tournaments the Sunburn League will be based on the handicap system. This means that all members regardless of bow type, gender, age or experience can compete against each other on equal terms. What’s more these tournaments will also allow members to achieve classifications up to Bowmen and maintain or improve their handicaps too.

How Does It Work?

Each month we will run three separate ‘leagues’ each shooting at the same time and shooting a variation of the National round so as to be suitable for all members. The various National rounds all consist of 6 dozen arrows of which 4 dozen are shot at the longer distance and 2 dozen at the shorter. The Leagues will be as follows:

League 1: Long National (80 & 60 yards)
League 2: National (60 & 50 yards)
League 3: Junior National (40 & 30 yards)

Anyone can shoot in any league at any time you don’t have to stick to the same League throughout the summer. You also don’t have to shoot in every round as only your top 3 highest scores will count towards determining an overall Grand Winner at the end of the outdoor season. Please note that all Senior members can shoot in League 3 even though it’s a ‘Junior’ round and your scores will count towards both your handicap and the tournament. However please note this round will only allow Senior Ladies the chance to achieve 3rd Class classification. Juniors can shoot and achieve handicap and classifications in all leagues.

For those who are unfamiliar with the handicap system it works like this.  Each time you shoot a round in accordance with the Rules of Shooting you can submit your scoresheet to our records officer and when you have submitted three scores the records officer can then calculate what your handicap is. Each round also has a handicap allowance associated with it and the combination of the archers handicap and the rounds allowance determines how many points are added to your score producing what is known as the Adjusted Score. For example here we have 4 archers, two (A & C) with a handicap of 50 and two (B & D) with a handicap of 30. On paper archers B & D are the better archers and so in a standard tournament based purely on the highest score shot, should beat archers A & C. The table below shows how the handicap system alters the scores.

Archer Handicap League
Round
Score
Shot
Allowance Adjusted
Score
A 50 National 420 1004 1424
B 30 National 570 845 1415
C 50 Long National 260 1110 1370
D 30 Long National 430 887 1317

As you can see in the National, archer B shot a higher score but their handicap was lower meaning their allowance was less and so Archer A won. So if you are a beginner and shoot a score as high or better than your handicap predicts you should, you could beat an archer who is more experienced but perhaps doesn’t shoot as well as their handicap predicts that they should.

Awards

 We will be awarding medals and trophies for each round, high scores, league winners, most improved handicap and Grand Winner which are detailed below.

•    Every round will have 3 winners, 1 per league with the winner being determined by the highest adjusted score and who each receive a medal.

After all 5 rounds have been shot the following awards will be given out.

•    A medal will be awarded to the archer who achieves the greatest improvement to their handicap.

•    A medal will be awarded in all three leagues to the archers who achieve the highest single round score.

•    A League Winner for each of the three leagues will be determined by the highest combined score in a single league and each winner will receive a trophy.

•    Finally everyone’s 3 highest scores across all leagues will be totaled together and the person with the highest overall score will be crowned our Grand Winner and receive a trophy.

Dates

The dates for each round will be as follows:

Round 1         Sunday 18th May              Assembly 09:30am Shoot 10:00am
Round 2         Sunday 22nd June            Assembly 09:30am Shoot 10:00am
Round 3         Sunday 20th July               Assembly 09:30am Shoot 10:00am
Round 4         Sunday 17th August          Assembly 09:30am Shoot 10:00am
Round 5         Sunday 21st September    Assembly 09:30am Shoot 10:00am

Any member that doesn’t yet have an outdoor handicap, please check our Club Records page (you need to be logged in to see it), we will be holding a ‘practice’ round after the Maintenance Day on April 6th. Your scores from this will then be added towards your handicap. If you require more than one outdoor score we will look at holding other practice rounds on subsequent weekends in April depending on demand and availability. Alternatively a temporary handicap can be worked out from the score of your first two dozen arrows from either a practice day or the first round of the tournament you shoot in.

If you have any questions please contact Oliver Johnson (Treasurer) or Frank Hollis (Records Officer) and Lloyd Mitchell who have kindly agreed to help run it.

Albion Against Chichester Bowmen

Tuesday, 01 October 2013 00:32

Sunday 29th September saw us shooting against Chichester Bowmen at our home ground.

The day started overcast with a few showers in the early morning and by the time everyone arrived at the field to set-up there was a cool nip in the air and the sky was full of grey clouds. Fortunately this did not last and it wasn't long before the sky was blue and the temperature increased making it a very pleasant days shoot. Assembly took place at 10:30am where Isla, our club secretary, explained the order of the day and read out the target list. Two rounds were being shot, an Albion and for those not yet ready to shoot at 80 yards, a short Windsor. Shooting the Albion for Worthing were Terry Kennard, Paul Kennard, Deb Pasley, Gavin Sutherland and David Philips.  Worthing archers shooting the Short Windsor were Vernon Hawkes, Stuart Judd, Oliver Johnson, Isla Bezencon, Karolina Wakulinska, Callum Day & Richard Day.

After the first 3 dozen arrows at 80 yards, thanks to the sterling work of Julian Apperley with assistance from Andy Hunt who we greatly thank, a barbeque was held with enough food to ensure that even the hungriest of archers would be satisfied. After this break, shooting continued at the remaining two distances.

In the end Chichester secured victory with a score of 3412 over our score of 3219 but our very own Gavin Sutherland had the highest individual score of the day with 926. Dave Wakeford of Chichester Bowmen scored 101 golds on his way to scoring 858 overall. In the short Windsor, Karolina Wakulinska took first place and a new PB with a score of 798, Isla Bezencon came second, also setting a new PB, with a score of 789, whilst Oliver Johnson came third with a score of 770.

Whilst the scores were being checked everyone enjoyed lots of tea and delicious cakes that had been very generously provided by several members. After the scores had been read out a potential invite from Chichester was offered in the form of a friendly Frostbite round to be held at their ground. If this goes ahead we will be sure to let you all know and hopefully we might be able to even the scores.

We would like to thank everyone who not only shot on the day but everyone behind the scenes who helped set-up the field, made cakes, made our guests feel welcome and most of all made the day such a success and very enjoyable for all. Without the hard work of you all it would not have been possible and we would like to also thank Gary Kinghorn, Frank Hollis, Gail Johnson, Karolina Wakulinska, Rose Potter & Graham Whittington.

Photos from the day can be viewed below.
