Namoi Valley Archers held a two round ABA event on Sunday with competitors taking the opportunity to prepare for the Tamworth ABA Invitation tournament to be held this weekend. A good field took to the Outback range with competitors battling very warm conditions which eventually turned to light rain showers at the conclusion of the second round. Ken Thompson and Sebastian Donovan both set new club records for their respective divisions on the day.
John Clark led the Male Sighted shooters home putting together two solid rounds with Stuart Dolbel finishing strongly to take second place with Greg Donovan also shooting well to take third. Phillip Porter was the standout in the Male Barebow ranks with an outstanding performance. Ken Hill put together two very tidy rounds to finish in second place just edging out Darrell Hudson by four points. Karen Hudson was a runaway winner in Female Barebow with Ann Stubbs in second and Shelley Porter in third. Matthew Whitman continued his recent good form shooting with great consistency to finish on top in Junior Boy Sighted with Shane Thompson grabbing second place with a polished performance with Josh Dolbel in third. Sebastian Donovan was in brilliant form in Cub Boy Sighted scoring a big win from Jackson Howes with Matthew Jauja in third.
