Namoi Valley Archers held a Delta round on Sunday with a good field enjoying the excellent weather conditions. The Delta round features full colour animal targets with very realistic scoring zones which make high scoring a very difficult challenge. Matt Wittman confirmed his rating as one of the clubs best young archers with a top class performance to win the Open contest. Wittman finished just in front of Steve Jaeger with Stuart Dolbel just edging out his wife Jodi Dolbel in the battle for third place. Darrell Hudson turned in another excellent performance to claim the win in the Traditional contest with Peter Stubbs in second and Michael Patrick third. Wade Hudson turned in a phenomenal round to blitz the field in the Compound division shooting with great precision. Karen Hudson had to battle hard to hold onto second place from the determined Ann Stubbs. The battle for supremacy in Junior Open was first class with Matthew Jauja hanging to record a very narrow win from Cameron Boxsell with James Boxsell finishing a close third. The next club shoot will be the return leg of the Tamworth-Gunnedah Interclub challenge with a two round event to be held on October 26th. This event is always a great day and the Gunnedah club will be looking to retain the Interclub trophy after they recorded a narrow in the first leg held in Tamworth earlier in the year.
