ABA Round Tests The Locals

Forty one archers took to the field to get in some much needed practice in the ABA format before the National titles at Orange this Easter. The ABA style sees the archer shoot two round of twenty targets. Targets are divided into five types depending on their distances, the farthest being 48 metres. In the first round 3 arrows maybe shot at the target but the first arrow to score a kill, wound or hit is only recorded, the value of each of the zones declines by two points and then by another two points per arrow shot, eg First arrow = 20 kill or 18 wound or 16 hit, the second arrow would be 14 or 12 or 10 and so forth. The second round is much tougher with only one arrow shot per target, no second chances.

Wade Hudson put in a smoking performance crushing his previous club record and posting a huge score in the process. Katie Patrick, Emelia Dolbel, Sebastian Donovan and Shane Thompson all broke the club records in their respective divisions after great days shooting.

John Clark pulled the new bow out the bubble wrap and showed everyone where the benchmark needs to be in Mens Open, Steve Jaeger wasn't far off the pace and finished ahead of Ben Ireland and Same Bates who shot pretty average after their good performances at the IFAA shoot last weekend.

Womens Open was also hotley contested with Jodi Dolbel just edging out Cassie Nuendorf after a demoralising second round from Jodi, cubs can be fun.
