Sunburn League 2014 - The Final
The last round of the Sunburn League 2014 took place on Sunday 21st September.
The wind certainly made for difficult shooting conditions seeming to blow in all directions pretty much all at the same time but still everyone shot well considering and even a few personal bests were recorded.
After 4 previous rounds the scores were quite tight in a number of categories. In the most improved handicap award for example, just one point separated the top 3 places and with the wind causing a number of archers to struggle, most of the other awards were still up for the taking.
Results from Round 5 and the overal results can be found below.

The Sunburn League has been not only great fun but very successful. Before we reveal the final results here are a few facts and figures.
- 32 members took part or roughly 50% of the senior club
- On average those that took part improved their handicap by 4 points
- Of those that took part 68% either acheived their first classification or improved upon an existing one
- Of those that took part in 3 or more rounds their scores shot (not allowing for handicap) improved on average by 70-100 points for the same round.
It has been hugely rewarding to see so many people not only take part in each round but to also have seen them practising in the weeks between each round, working on their form, release, working up to greater distances bow tuning etc etc so as to ensure they have the best chance in the league. Congratulations to everyone that took part!
