3D Round Attracts 60 Shooters

Namoi Valley Archers held a 2 round 3D event on Sunday with the biggest field in club history in attendance. Organizers were swamped with entries with archers from Tamworth, Moonbi, Manilla and Murrundi boosting numbers to over 60 for the day. Course designers, Greg Donovan and Lloyd Jauja delivered a top class layout for the day with archers tested by targets cleverly placed in the natural terrain. Tamworth archers dominated the Sighted contest with Ben Mc Culloch showing his 3D prowess scoring a very narrow win over renowned hunter, Brad Smith with Robbie Austin grabbing third in a hotly contested division. Karen Hudson turned in another brilliant performance to win the Compound event putting together 2 top class rounds with veteran Tamworth archer, Neville White taking second from Ann Stubbs who finished third. Darrell Hudson was another archer in fine form scoring a decisive win in the Traditional division with Peter Stubbs returning to form to take second place with Sharon Boyd finishing third. Zac Hayne scored a great win in the Junior Sighted beating home a crack field after scoring well in both rounds just edging out Lachlan Scott in a very tight contest with Sebastian Donovan in third. The Cub Sighted division was won by Sophie Donovan with Callum Urquhart taking second with Lachlan Boyd just doing enough to finish third. The next club shoot will be held on November 21st.
