REGISTRATION IS ON A FIRST-RECEIVED AND PAID BASIS.This registration form must be completed and your payment received in order for you to be registered and a place reserved for you.
MINIMUM ENROLLMENT:The 18-m League will be held only if there are 5 or more archers registered for the League. If the League does not make this minimum registration requirement, you will be notified at least one week in advance, so you can reschedule. Instructor Dale at his discretion may agree to hold the League, even if it doesn't make the minimum registration.
FORMAT: The distance will be 18m (unless a themed week). Everyone will shoot on the same target, even in themed weeks.Two practice ends for sighting in One timed scoring roundDouble-scoring and marking targets As close to tournament conditions as possibleWe’ll have music playing and/or anything to make a fun atmosphere.
HANDICAP SYSTEM:Every archer must score three rounds before a handicap is assigned.The handicap reflects the ability of the archer. Subsequent rounds are measured against the handicap and a ‘net’ score is used for league rankings. If a round is scored that beats a previous handicap, the archer’s handicap is lowered accordingly. Handicaps are constantly recalculated, but never increase, so archers always try to reach their best level.The archer shows progress by lowering their handicap.
Examples:Bob shoots three rounds of 255, 250, 247. The average is 251. The total score of 300 - 251 gives 49. We take 75% of that value to get a handicap of 36. The next time Bob shoots he will start out with 36 points. If he scores 255, his net score would be 291.
Sally shoots three rounds of 232, 205 and 198. The average is 212. The total score of 300 - 212 gives 88. We take 75% of that value to get a handicap of 66. The next time Sally shoots, she scores 240, making her net score 306. Sally wins more league points than Bob, even though Bob scored a higher gross score (255 vs 240).
Because Sally scored a higher score than her current handicap, her handicap must be adjusted as follows:Last round was 240. The 240 handicap would be 45 (300 - 240 * 75%). Her previous handicap was 66. The difference between 45 and 66 is 21. We divide that by 2 to give 11. Sally will now have 11 knocked off her handicap to give a new handicap of 55. From that point forward, Sally now has to maintain the new level she achieved.
LEAGUE POINTS AND RESULTS:League points are accumulated each week based on net placement. Whoever turns up gets points regardless of placement. If we have 10 people in the league, then the net winner for that week gets 10 points, the 2nd place gets 9, the 3rd gets 8, etc. In the event of a tie, both players would get the same number of points. Once points are allocated, the league table is recalculated and published/printed out and posted on the ATCI walls.Example:Player 1 nets 299 (tied 1st, 10 points)Player 2 nets 299 (tied 1st, 10 points)Player 3 nets 280 (3rd place, 8 points - there is no second place)
AWARDS:Weekly winner : Bragging rights. Monthly winner : Some kind of award (ideas welcome). Semester winner : Main award (ideas welcome)Annual winner will be announced and awarded at the ATCI Annual Awards Banquet in mid-August each year.
