ABA On Outback Range

Namoi valley Archers held a 2 round ABA event on Sunday with a big field taking to the Outback range to compete in perfect weather conditions.

Wade Hudson was once again in superlative form smashing his own club record as he romped away from the field to score a decisive win in the Compound division underlining his status as one of Australia’s finest archers.

Karen Hudson also continued her recent good form shooting a personal best score to take second place with Tamworth veteran, Neville White grabbing third place.

Greg Scott monstered the field in a very competitive Sighted contest to score an impressive win putting together 2 rounds of precision archery. Stuart Dolbel had to call on all his experience to hold of Narrabri’s John Finn by just 2 points in a very close battle for the minor placings.

Darrell Hudson put together a very impressive showing to finish the day on top in the Traditional ranks with a top class score with Peter Stubbs also in good form taking second with Michael Patrick in third.

Zac Hayne shot extremely well to score the win in the Junior Sighted division from Sebastian Donovan with the rapidly improving Lachlan Boyd in third.

Other archers to impress included Haylee Murrell, William Loftus and Kaytlyn Murrell.

The club will be holding a working bee this weekend to prepare for the upcoming NSW State 3D championships with the next club shoot set down for August 7th. This shoot will be a 2 round 3D event and will be the final hit out for club members before the State tournament.
