Some Background

Since the earliest days of the Club there has been a monthly Handicap event.  In the late 70's and early 80's it was so hotly contested that there was a teams event, with the President and the Secretary each fielding a four person team.  There was even an engraved trophy (well, a polished timber toilet seat, actually).  Sadly, the trophy has been lost in the mists of time, but another tradition from those early days still survives.


Right from the beginning, the prize for the Handicap winner was a pottery mug.  Originally the mugs were made by one of the club's founding members, Norm Moss.  Later, when Norm left the club we used store-bought mugs.  Since the early 2000's, we have been using purpose-made mugs, designed and created for us by Nic Auton of Legend Pottery.  I like to think the use of hand-made mugs is a link to our past, and in some small way a kind of tribute to Norm, and other members who have fallen along the way.


The Competition

The Handicap event is held monthly, usually on the third Sunday (although this may be altered to avoid clashing with major tournaments).  Competitors shoot the Canberra round (90 arrows, 30 each at 60m, 50m and 40m).  Members with a Handicap Rating below 50 may shoot the Short Canberra (90 arrows, 30 each at 50m, 40m and 30m).  For the September handicap (our Birthday Handicap), we use a historical round called a Metric American (90 arrows, 30 each at 55m, 45m and 35m).  The Metric American was the first ever round shot at Edenborough Park by the club, and was the original Handicap round for many years.


The winner is determined by adding the Archer's score to an allowance based on their handicap.  Highest overall score takes home the mug.
