ABA, Before Nationals

A small group of local archers took to the Wondobah Range to get some last minute practice in before the Nationals at Wagga this weekend. The Boundry Range was chosen for an ABA paper target round and proved favourable for a couple of the locals.

Greg Donovan shooting his new Prestige was in blistering form in the first round shooting a 388 before lunch, Greg's second round let him down leaving him just short of the club record.

Karen Hudson was another in great form smashing the old barebow club record for ladies.

Ben Ireland came up with a convincing win in the open division and should help him gain confidence and form for the Nationals.

Namoi Valley Archers will be sending a strong team of shooters to the Nationals this year and will also help represent Branch E in the hotly contested branch team event.

Father and sone team Darryl and Wade Hudson also won their respective divisions putting them in good form for what is usually a very hotly contested division at the nationals.
