Notes

BA Postal League web site.
BA Postal League Facebook page.

These are winter leagues for outdoor Frostbite and indoor Portsmouth, using Compound and Recurve bows. For the 2016/2017 season CPB have entered the same as last year, 1 team in each of the compound frostbite, recurve frostbite, and two in recurve Portsmouth leagues. Mike J collects the Frostbite scores sheets and gets the Portsmouth scores from Mark to post (or email) off.

Match day is usually the first Sunday in the month for frostbite, and the first Tuesday in the month for Portsmouth. Unless the weather or holidays mean the match has to be shot on the second Sunday or Tuesday. The 3 archers with the highest score that month are team A, if a second team has been entered then the next 3 are team B etc. So the members of each team will vary from month to month.

Each team is entered in a division of 6 teams based on the previous years results or an estimate for new teams. Each month, for the 5 months from November to March, the team competes against one of the other teams in that division. The division is ranked by match point score with 3 points for a win, 2 for a draw, 1 for a loss and 0 for not entering a score. If there is a tie on match points, then the arrow score is used to break the tie, followed by hits and then golds (10s). At the end of the season, the top team in each division gets 4 badges to share out.

Every score helps, last year we came second in one league with the same match point score and lost on the total arrow score by 75 points because we only had 2 archers scores for one month.

The fixture list for November to March is usually published in mid November. The November results are published in January, the December and January results in March, and the Febuarary and March results together with the overall winners in May.

Example Fixture List

Arrow Score Adjustment

After the division number on the fixture list there is division score. It is an average of the estimates for all the teams in the division. Most teams are put into a division which relates to their average monthly score for the previous season. If a team score exceeds the division score by 75 for compound frostbite, 90 for recurve frostbite or 120 for Portsmouth, then it's score is reduced by twice the excess.

Example:
  Division Score                900
  Recurve Frostbite allowance    90
  Division Threshold            990
  Arrow Score shot              995
  Excess Points                   5
  Adjusted score                985
