Every Massachusetts resident who participates in a SAAM ranking tournament is eligible for a state ranking in his/her respective class and division. Out of state residents who shoot for a Massachusetts Archery Club are also eligible for a MA state ranking.
To calculate a ranking, each archer’s three best finishes (indoors, two for outdoor events) are averaged. If an archer only shoots two events, a 99 is entered for the third event. Similarly if the archer only shot one event, 99 would be entered for the other two events. In case of a tie, total arrows are used for the tiebreaker. Each event consists of a maximum 600 points, except for the 2006 SAAM Mail In tournament which was a 300 round; so these scores, if used, were doubled. Scores from the Indoor Nationals which is a 1200 round were only used in the event of a tie.
Although it is hoped the list accurately reflects each archer’s eligibility, score and ranking for each event, there may be errors. If you are aware of an error or omission, please send an e-mail to the chairof the Ranking Committee, Brian O’Hearne so the results and the rankings can be corrected to accurately reflect the actual results.
