 The founding principles of the competition is to encourage club members to try an alternative bow type (barebow) in a fun competition. As some members of the club have embraced and are used to shooting this bow style an alternative system for deciding the winner, which would allow those less used to shooting this bow style is chosen.The winners prize will be a bottle of Cuban rum there are many spot prizes. It is a bit of fun for all.


Longbow Outside Portsmouth Postal League 

Every winter the BLBS puts on an outside Portsmouth postal league. The competition is open to teams of 4 longbow archers and operates over the  months November-February. Like an indoor Portsmouth’ a round is 5 dozen arrows shot in ends of 3 at a distance of 20 yards on a 60cm target face. Unlike an indoor Portsmouth however scoring is imperial (9,7,5 ...) and not metric. Results are classified by hits, score and golds in that order. Inner golds are also scored as tiebreakers.  Each team has to submit the results of 2 rounds shot  per month for each member and and the winning team is the one with the greatest aggregate number of hits, or, in the usual situation that each team has scored the maximum hits, the highest aggregate score. Members of the winning team receive a medal. Individual rankings are also recorded and published. Archers who are not members of a team may submit scores for the individual rankings.
