Monthly Club Tournaments

Each month there is a “Monthly Club Shoot”. This shoot includes rounds suitable for a novice to the most experienced archer and every club member is very much encouraged to participate. These monthly club shoots are also used to determine the Club Target Champions for the year.

Three Silver Arrow Clout events (double rounds) and one additional single clout event on the Exhibition Wednesday holiday will be held. Points will be given for both placings and participation. The best three of the seven clout rounds will be used to determine the Annual Champions Medal placings for compound, recurve and longbow.

Club Short Range Champion

Four short range events will be held on Saturday mornings. Points are given for both placings and participation. The best three of the four results will be used to determine the Annual Champions Medal placings for compound, recurve and longbow.

Club Indoor Champion

There will be six Indoor Qualifying and Ranking Events (QREs) held on Wednesday evenings once a month from February to July. Points are given for both placings and participation. The best three of the six results for the WA Indoor 18m round will determine the Annual Champions Medal placings for compound and recurve.

Club Indoor Matchplay Champion

The Wednesday evening Indoor Matchplay League starts in August on the first Wednesday evening of the month and runs until November, i.e. 4 sessions of competition. The best three results out of the four used to determine the Annual Champions Medal placings for compound and recurve.

The start time is 19.00 for the ranking round and the matches will follow. To be in the competition just turn up on the night and participate in the ranking round, make the cut, then straight into the matches. The ranking round will consist of 15 arrows.

As this is the inaugural year and we need to see how popular the league is, there shall be only 2 divisions of Compound and Recurve, other bow types must shoot in one of these divisions. There will be places in the head to head matches for the top 8 Compound archers and top 8 recurve archers from the ranking round. All matches irrespective of bow type will be shot using the sets system. Points will be accumulated on each of the 4 evenings of 4 points for 1st, 3 points for 2nd, 2 points for 3rd, and 1 point for participation.

The annual Club Indoor Matchplay Champion 1st, 2nd and 3rd place getters in Compound and in Recurve shall be awarded from the accumulated points based on the best 3 results. In the event of a tie there shall be a single arrow tie break.

As this year’s tournament league is regarded as a trial event we may need to revise the rules as we progress the competition.

Most Improved Archer

There may also be a Most Improved Archer award for the archers that have shown the greatest improvement over the year in any single bow type or division, ie calculated on the same bow type and division for that archer.

Calculation:

The Most Improved Archer may be determined from the improvement in average rating achieved for the top 3 scores (from at least 3 scores) submitted in February, March and April to that achieved for the top 3 scores in at least September, October and November for rounds shot at the club shoots at the club as listed in the Club Calendar.
