Namoi Valley Archers held a Delta round On Sunday with a good field taking to the Outback range in perfect weather conditions.
The club trialled a new scoring system on Sunday with archers allowed to shoot 3 arrows at each target with the only the highest scoring arrow counted.
The new scoring system worked well allowing competitors the opportunity to attack the very small bullseye on the Delta targets with the end result some very close finishes in the various divisions.
Tamworth veteran, Neville White scored the victory in the Compound event just doing enough to defeat Karen Hudson who just edged out Wendi Murrell in a very tight contest for the minor placings .
Darrell Hudson led the field home in the Traditional event with Peter Stubbs and Phil Greenwood finishing tied after a very tense battle.
John Clark found the scoring system to his liking to record a very narrow win in the Sighted contest with Gordon White in second and Greg Donovan and Greg Scott deadheating for third.
The close scoring continued in the Junior Sighted event with Zac Hayne and Sebastian Donovan unable to be separated in the battle for top spot with Lachlan Boyd grabbing third.
