nGolden Records Online has been updated for the new Archery GB age group changes. New categories have been added to reflect the change to fall in line with World Archery (Ladies will become Women) and use of the old categories will be disabled from 1 October 2022. For club record purposes it will be possible to link old and new categories so they are considered the same. This linking has been added as part of the update.nn
nAt this time updated classification and handicap tables are not available so the old tables will remain in use for a while. In the interim the new 50+ and under 21 category will use existing senior values.n
For Club users the new names can be linked to the old by visiting https://archery-records.net/clubs/mappings
Golden Records Online and Golden Records Desktop have been updated to include two new features.n
The ability to link rounds together for club records purposes has been added. By linking rounds they are considered one round for club records purposes. This is in anticipation of the proposed Archery GB change to Rule 308 in respect of the names of official rounds, but also applies to historic changes such as FITA 25 becoming WA 25. If rounds are linked then the highest score in the group will be taken.n
A further change for UK users is the addition of a setting to apply Archery GB rules for UK records to club records. If this setting is activated age limits will be applied to club records, preventing seniors from claiming junior round records. It will also restrict double round records to those listed in Rule 308. It doesn't apply to rounds other than official Archery GB rounds.
For club officials an additional switch has been added to confirm whether or not the score would qualify as a club record (if it was a potential club record). This, when the score is submitted removes the score from consideration for club records and the score will not appear in the New Club Records list. The Qualifying switch now only operates for handicap and classification consideration.
Clarification has been added regarding the purpose of the Record Status switch. For GB classifications that are dependent on the score being shot at certain events, if Record Status is not set, the confirmation will report if the classification for the score has been restricted.
