Namoi Valley Archers held a 3 arrow Delta round on Sunday with a big field taking to the Outback range in perfect winter conditions with Ken Thompson, Darrell Hudson, Zac Hayne and Haylee Murrell all setting new club records on the day.
The full colour Delta animal targets provide a unique challenge with anatomically correct score zones giving a very small margin of error with archers having to decide on taking a safer shot for less points or going for maximum points and risk dropping out of the scoring zone by just a few centimetres and receiving no points.
Wendi Murrell scored an impressive win in the Compound division to edge out Karen Hudson in a tight contest with Steve Jaeger grabbing third.
John Clark did just enough to score the win in the Sighted contest with Stuart Dolbel grabbing second place with Narrabri’s John Finn finishing in third.
Haylee Murrell won the battle of the sisters finshing on top in Cub Compound with Kaytlyn Murrell in second and Emylie Murrell in third.
The next club shoot will be held on July 10 and will be the final opportunity for archers to prepare for the Northern NSW Branch ABA Titles to be held at Taree.
