Boundry Range 3 Arrow

Namoi Valley Archers held a three arrow animal round on Sunday with a good field competing in blustery conditions. Competitors used this event to fine tune their form for the Tamworth Invitational ABA Tournament which is scheduled for this weekend with a big contingent from the club planning to compete (pre nom to

Wade Hudson scored an excellent win in the Compound event in his first outing with his new bow. Phillip Porter also shot particularly well to take second place with Karen Hudson proving too strong in the concluding stages to edge out Ken Hill for third place.

John Clark held off a very strong challenge from Stuart Dolbel to record a very narrow win in the Open Division with the improving Lloyd Jauja shooting well to take third place. Dolbel’s round was most impressive as early equipment problems meant he had to switch to a back up bow at very short notice.

The ultra consistent Greg Donovan continues to set a cracking pace in the Bowhunter division with another top class round. Scott Porter made a welcome return to the range to take second place with Cameron Hill third.

Darrell Hudson showed he will be hard to beat at Tamworth next weekend putting together a great round to score a convincing win in the Traditional contest with Peter Stubbs also shooting well to take second place with Michael Patrick in third.

The next club shoot will be held on March 9th and will be a two round 3D event. The club has recently upgraded their range of 3D targets and this will be the first opportunity for club members to try them out.

Weekend Results 3rd Feb 08

Namoi Valley Archers kicked off the season in fine style on Sunday with a big field taking to the completely rebuilt Outback range under overcast skies. Range designers, Darrell Hudson and Peter Stubbs, brought a fresh new look to the range which proved a real test for all competitors. Ken Thompson, who has worked hard on his form in the off season set a new club record on the day with a very impressive round. The battle for honours in the Open division went right down to the wire with Ben Ireland finishing the day on top just failing to match his own club record in a brilliant display of archery. John Clark pushed Ireland all the way but had to settle for second place with Steve Jaeger grabbing third. Wade Hudson scored a comfortable win in the Compound division with Phillip Porter taking second place with Karen Hudson shooting well to take third. Darrell Hudson won a hotly contested Traditional division with Michael Patrick shooting well to take second place with Peter Stubbs third. Matthew Jauja turned in a superb performance to score a big win in Junior Open and looks set for a big year. Cameron Boxsell shot well to take second place with James Boxsell in third. Amy Stubbs started the year in great form finishing the day as the top archer in Junior Compound with Keegan Patrick just easing past Jarrod Stubbs to take second place in a very even Junior Compound division. Sebastian Donovan was another archer in very good form setting a cracking pace in Cub Open with Jess Sinclair holding off Meg Jaeger in the battle for the minor placings. The next club shoot will be held on February 17th and this will be the final shoot before the Tamworth ABA tournament to be held on February 23rd and 24th.
