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 firstname.lastname@example.org).
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.
