These are winter leagues for outdoor Frostbite and indoor Portsmouth, using Compound and Recurve bows (Barebow scores as Recurve). Mike J collects the Frostbite scores sheets and gets the Portsmouth scores from Terry to email (or post) off. Match day is usually the second Sunday in the month for frostbite, and the second Tuesday in the month for Portsmouth. 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. Only 10s as golds. 6 sighters. Compound score inner 10 for Portsmouth, outer 10 for frostbite.
Every score helps, one year we came second in a 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.

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
