August and everything after [13/Aug/13]

At long last all the Best Results tables in the Club Directory have been updated to include all the 2013 results.

The middle column, which previously showed the club's best result since 1996, has now been changed to show the best result since 2007. 1996 was used because it was the year BUSA came in to being and was as far back as there were complete results for. However, results from 1996 would now be almost old enough to go to university themselves, so it felt like time to bring this column a bit up to date.

The new "year zero" that has been selected is 2007. Apologies to those clubs whose finest hours came in 2006, but the line has to go somewhere. This was the year that BUSA became BUCS and also the first year that the BUCS Outdoor championships was held as a FITA. BUTC's current knock-out match format was adopted in this year and it was the E-League's first year of having 5 rounds. Also BUTC and E-League can now use this column sensibly.

Congratulations to Derby whose 2013 vintage performed a clean sweep of their best ever performances. Special mention also to Oxford who claimed their best ever finish at both BUCS championships and of course, BUTC.

As ever if there is any out of date contact information in the Club Directory, please contact UKSAA.

Two "new" All Unis records have been added to the spreadsheet [Mea culpa, Ed.], both are gents novice scores. Matt Reeve (Derby) scored a Portsmouth of 400 in a BUTTS League Match in Nottingham, beating the "previous" record of 396 he later shot at BUCS Indoor. Recurve Andrew Howe (Southampton) broke the novice Bray I record with 265 at BUTC in Lancaster. The previous record of 262 had stood since BUTC 2005.

No less than 23 All Unis records have been broken this season, not including those set for the 70m/50m rounds.

In regional league organiser news, the Scottish clubs are looking for a replacement for Matt Nowicki who retires after a total of 5 years as organiser, with the league looking healthier and more competitive than in a long time. Stephen Fawcett and Chris Guerin will reprise their roles, whilst NEUAL is looking at a committee to be in place by 1st September.

Finally entrants to the 2014 BUCS championships will need a validated BUCS web account to be eligible to compete. See the BUCS website for the news article and leaflet, the initiative is called "Activate to Participate".
