Namoi Valley Archers held a three arrow animal round on Sunday with a big field taking to the Outback range to shoot in perfect weather conditions. In the Bowhunter Limited division Stuart Dolbel proved too steady for the opposition with Greg Donovan shooting well to take second place with Scott Porter grabbing third. Ken Thompson continued his recent run of hot form scoring a good win in Mens Compound relegating Phillip Porter to second place with Steve Woodward taking third. Cassie Neuendorf and Jodi Dolbel turned on a spirited battle in Womens Open with Neuendorf winning by a narrow five point margin with Norma Culley in third place. Darrell Hudson bounced back to form winning the Traditional division with an excellent score with Michael Patrick also shooting well in second place with Peter Stubs finishing third. Josh Dolbel shot a personal best score to win Junior Open with Robbie Porter in second and Jordan Carter in third. In other club news outstanding junior barebow archer Wade Hudson turned in a brilliant performance at the recent Tuggerah Lakes ABA Invitational tournament winning the B grade contest by a massive margin. Hudson actually shot scores two grades above his current grading and on this form will be receiving a well earned promotion very shortly. The Eagle Boys award went to John Clark with Cameron Hill receiving the McDonalds award.
