First Shoot For 2009

Namoi Valley Archers launched the 2009 season on Sunday with 38 archers braving the hot conditions to compete in a 2 arrow 3D round. This round gave club members their only opportunity to prepare for the 2 day 3D tournament to be held at Moonterra on the Central Coast this weekend. Course designers, Greg Donovan and Lloyd Jauja prepared a very challenging 20 target range which provided plenty of tough shots through clever use of terrain and target choice. Jackelyn Patrick found the course to her liking setting a new Cub Girl Compound record on the day. The Open division had a big field with John Clark edging out Stuart Dolbel for top spot in a close contest. Gordon White showed the benefit of some hard work at the practice butts over the off season to grab third spot from some highly rated archers. Wade Hudson turned in an impressive performance to finish the day as the top Compound archer with Karen Hudson shooting well to take second spot with Ken Hill in third after a solid round. Darrell Hudson scored a great win in the Traditional contest with visiting Tamworth archer, Andrew Springall taking second place and Michael Patrick third. James Boxsell returned the highest score of the day with a sensational round on his way to winning Junior Open with Cameron Boxsell filling second p[lace and Sebastian Donovan third. The next club shoot will be held on February 15th with muster at 8.45am.
