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.
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 medals to share out.
The medals will be allocated to archers that shoot in that team, by various conditions, such as
not getting a medal the previous year, 2 or more appearances for that team, highest scores ...
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.

Each month teams compete against one of the other teams acording to the following table.
e.g. in December Team 5 (Crystal Palace) competes with Team 4 (Clophill A.C. B).
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.
Division Score 900
Recurve Frostbite allowance 90
Division Threshold 990
