DCAS Winter Postals 2014-15

Hi all


Alan has asked me to relay some information to you re the Winter Postal league in Devon and Cornwall.


We would like as many members as possible to shoot a scoring round for this every month, then Alan can choose the best scores from each category to submit to DCAS for the postal tournament.


The winter postals and frostbite start in November, the first score submitted each month will be the only score that counts. The 3 best scores per month will make up each team; in the case of more than one team the best scores will be split into groups of three, and submitted as Team A, Team B etc.


The cut off date for scores for both postal and frostbite will be 15th of each month.


Postals consist of a Portsmouth round (60 arrows at 20 yards, 10 zone scoring on a 60cm face*; six sighters may be shot). *Senior compound archers should use a 60cm 3 spot vertical face.


The teams for postals consist of:

1 Compound

2 Recurve

1 Longbow

1 Junior (Mixed Styles)


The Frostbite round is an outdoor one for the winter. Frostbites rounds consist of 36 arrows at 30 Metres and must be shot outside; six sighters may be shot. Frostbite teams are made up of mixed styles, with one compound archer only.


We have one adult frostbite team.


If as many people as possible score a round for the postals, Alan will be able to make up teams, we did well in the Summer postals, and it’d be great to do even better in the Winter ones
