Sunday saw the first 3D shoot for the season. As per the vote at last years AGM scoring was the same as an ABA round, the only thing is our 3D range is a 14 target range, not a 20 target range as per ABA, no problem, this seemed to suit the large group of archers with two 14 target rounds being shot and buy the end of it everyone seemed happy with the new steup.
The course was challenging enough to see the best archers unable to get a perfect but rewarding enough to keep the bulk of the shooters in the money. John Clark posted a fantastic second round just missing a perfect fourteen targets by two points. Once the scores were recorded and converted from the old 3D scoring Ben Ireland and Sam Bates can both claim new course records at 550 out of a possible 560, well done. Cassie Nuendorf also posted a record in the womens open, obviously taking a liking to the hunting distances used on the range.
Without a target over 40mtrs it's all about placement and target choice, and a small pig at 25mtrs at the bottom of a steep gully with 12mtrs of dead ground makes for some interesting distance estimates, especially when you could hardly see it for the shadows in the morning and then it was almost shiney in the afternoon.
It was a great shoot and judging by the scores one most were happy to shoot.
