ArchPHP: A PHP based dynamic website for archery clubs

Submitted by martyn on Sun, 08/04/2007 - 16:04

A few years ago I was fairly involved with a university archery club. The exec of the club at the time thought it would be a cool idea to have a community website, to allow the members to keep up-to-date with club news, get club information. The site also provides members a place to keep track of the equipment they use and could keep track of their scores. This also enables the exec to see how the members are progressing, allowing them to easily see who may need more help and who is doing well (for example when needing to pick a team for inter-university shoots).
