During the summer and winter seasons DCAS (Devon & Cornwall Archery Society) organise a postal league. Results from a club shoot are collated by the club Records Officer and posted to DCAS and entered into various divisions and leagues depending on age groups and disciplines.
During the winter season Yelverton Bowmen currently put forward entries for the Portsmouth indoor round. Only one shoot and result for each month can be entered into the postal league by an individual archer.
The top results for each month are organised to produce a team and these results are then put forward to DCAS, the teams can therefore change from month to month. The individual archer results, team results and the DCAS leagues and divisions are available on the respective club and DCAS websites.
The Tavistock Trophy is an internal competition organised by the club and runs alongside the indoor postal. Each month the archers’ Portsmouth Postal results are entered towards the Tavistock Trophy and added to the previous month’s results. At the end of the winter season the archers with the highest scores in various disciplines and age groups are awarded the Trophy. Obviously entering a score every month increases an archer’s chance of achieving this award.
