Namoi Valley Archers took to the field on Sunday for a two-round ABA on the boundary range in sunny but cool conditions. Archers battled it out for the top placings with some interesting results. Sebastian Donovan proved to be a worthy opponent to father Greg Donovan, edging him out of the top spot in the sighted division with a concerted display of precision archery. Greg Scott rounded out the top three just doing enough to stave off the rest of the field. Karen Hudson proved to be too strong in the barebow compound division, with Ann Stubbs taking second and Wendi Murrell finishing in third place. John Woolaston showed his skill in the traditional contest by holding off a determined effort by Peter Stubbs to take first place with Darrell Hudson grabbing third. Junior member Lachlan Boyd showed great improvement in recent weeks by putting in his best score to date. A small contingent of members from the club are heading to Kempsey this weekend for the branch ABA titles. The next club shoot is a 3-arrow Delta set down for Sunday July 29, 9am rego for a 9.30am start.

Namoi Valley Archers held a 3 arrow animal round on Sunday with archers taking to the revamped outback range in very cool conditions. Course designers, Steve Jaeger and Stuart Dolbel presented a very cleverly designed range with clever shot placement testing the distance judgement skills of competitors. Greg Donovan mastered the course on the day to score an emphatic win in the Sighted division. Donovan was in a class of his own breaking the 1100 point barrier to finish the day as top point scorer overall. James Bush was another archer in great form shooting well to finish in second place with Greg Scott in third. Karen Hudson bounced back to form to score a dominating win in the Compound division after some hard work at the practice butts during the week. Wendi Murrell filled second place with Jarrod Stubbs in third. Darrell Hudson proved too consistent in the Traditional contest turning in an impressive score with Peter Stubbs outgunning Phil Greenwood in a spirited battle for the minor placings. The next club shoot is set down for July 15th with registration by 9.00am for a 9.30am start on the range. Darrell and Karen Hudson both scored gold meddles at the recent Tuggerah Lakes Invitational tournament.

Karen Hudson struggled with her from but still did enough to win the Masters gold.
