NSW State 3D

NSW State 3D titles Namoi Valley Archers last shoot was conducted in preparation for the hosting of the upcoming state 3D archery titles to be held at the Wandobah Road range on the weekend of the 17 – 18 August. A working bee was conducted on the Saturday before the club shoot to ready the range and facilities for the influx of shooters expected. The club is hoping for good weather over the weekend with a stockpile of fire wood and plenty of hot water to ease aching muscles, with a story or two to be told, and embellished, around the campfires. The weekend will consist of shooting at 20 3D animal targets on two ranges, with a 3 arrow round in the morning and a one arrow round in the afternoon on the Saturday, followed by the, always exciting and lively, knife and axe throwing in the evening. On the Sunday there will be a two arrow all count in the morning over 20 targets, followed by the presentations and awards.
