Rain Cuts ABA Round Short

A small field of dedicated (read crazy) archers hit the modified "Outback" range for some ABA practice before the Branch Shoot at Hunter. The rain was persistant but not heavy enough to dampen the spirits with some good first half scores being recorded, (and some not so good) with a few archers discovering that wet weather gear is not that suitable to the sport. With the round cut short the score was out of 400 for the day.

Hunting Score Update 30/5/05

IFAA Round June 5th

A IFAA round was held this weekend to give some much needed practice to those heading the IFAA Nationals at Hervey Bay this coming weekend. IFAA is not as popular with many as the ABA rounds are but Namoi Valley Archers will still be sending a strong field to the Nationals to represent Branch E. The branch and the club were very successful at the ABA Nationals at Easter this year and hope to carry the form across to the IFAA style. With marked distances some may call it easier but when those distances can be out to 72mtr (ABA Max = 48) you can begin to see where the challenge lies. The Hunter and Field round also require 28 target X 4 arrows which some archers find tyering compared to the 1 to 3 arrows over 20 targets X 2 in ABA.
A good was had and a few glitchs were found and hopefully fixed for the Nationals, good luck to all competing.

A congratulations should also be made to those who travelled away to shoot over the last couple of weeks. Sam Bates shot well at the FITA, finishing 4th in an impressive field. The Woodwards also travelled to Newcastle to compete in the hottly contested indoor event. Hellen took out the gold Stacey a gold, Damien a silver and Steve just out of the medals with an impressive 4th place.

3D Range Tested 29th May

A 3D round was organised for a glorious day's archery. After a shocking cold cloudy Saturday, Sunday realy turned it on. A good numbers of archers participated making it an enjoyable day for all. A few quick changed to distances and a diviation to the normal layout made for a very interesting and challenging shoot. A special thanks should be given to Phillip Porter who took the time out to put a number of club members through their BPC course, congratulations to those who passed.
