Namoi Valley Archers conducted a three arrow animal round on Sunday with a good field on hand to compete in very warm conditions. Range captain, Stuart Dolbel, had plenty of surprises for competitors as they shot the redesigned Boundary range for the first time. Target 18 was the talking point among competitors after several archers came to grief on this extremely intimidating and difficult shot. Wade Hudson finished on top in Mens Compound after compiling an impressive round but Ken Thompson continues to hound Hudson and this intriguing contest will be one to watch during the year. Phillip Porter shot consistently to grab third spot from Ken Hill. Darrell Hudson proved far too good in the Traditional division with Michael Patrick shooting well to take second place with Peter Stubbs in third. Josh Dolbel was in devastating form in the Junior Open contest scoring a big win with Cameron Hill in second and Jamie Thompson third. The Cub Boy Open division provided some very close competiton with Shane Thompson shooting brilliantly to score a good win from Sebastian Donovan with Matthew Jauja also shooting well to take third.
The club will be holding a working bee on March 3rd commencing at 9’30 am to prepare for the upcoming two day tournament. The next club shoot will be a two round ABA event to be held on March 4th.
