Thirty Five archers took to the Boundry Range in what could only be described as the perfect Autumn day for archery. The wind wasn't strong enough to make it through the forest and the previous days rain had the soil soft underfoot. Two rounds were shot across the one range and after 40 arrows Mens Open came in with the top three placegetters all with the same score.
Wade Hudson was in awsome form, I asked him at lunch how he shot the first round, "Wade howd you shoot the first round"..............Wade's only reply with a mouthfull of greasy BBQ sausage was a muffled "Awsome", if his first round was awsome than I don't know how to describe his second round which beat his first round by over 10 points, a 388 from a barebow compound shooter off the red peg is a score to be very proud of and something only a handful of archers have witnessed. Wade destroyed the old club record on the day and set a benchmark only a few will ever have a chance of beating.
Amy Stubbs also smashed the club record for her division in a blistering performance. Amy has been improving greatly over the last few months and will undoubtedly be a great compound archer as she gains more experience.
The next shoot to look out for is the invitational at Tuggerah this weekend and then after that the Inter Club Challenge between Tamworth Field Archers and Namoi Valley Archers on the 13th of May.
Following that there is a club IFAA shoot penciled in for the 27th of May leading up to the Australasian Championships at Sale June long weekend.
