End of Year Club Compatition

Hello Everyone,

As most of you know on November the 26th we had our End of Year shoot. While the day was cloudy and windy (For those shooting outdoors), it was still a good day and we had a good showing.

In the morning starting at 9:30 we had the outdoor portion of the shoot, This was the Canberra and the Short Canberra. With strong and blustery northern winds our archers shot very well.

Here are the results for the day:

Indoor League Update 

The Winter Indoor League kicks off this Friday – with one change from last season.

The League will again be conducted on the 1st and 3rd Fridays, with flexibility for archers to shoot on other days when necessary.

The change involves the time of the Friday session. Last season there was one session which started at 6pm and involved 2 x 30 arrows rounds with a rest break between.

This season we will run two Friday sessions, again both being 2 x 30 arrows rounds with a rest break between.

Session 1: Commences at 4:30PM

Session 2: Commences at 5:30PM

The sessions will overlap somewhat, and during Session 1 we will need to accommodate members who wish to shoot indoor but not as part of the League.

All this is manageable.

Again, FLEXIBILITY is a key to the Leagues success, so if these session times don’t suit you, let us know and we’ll work to accommodate your needs.

Maximum participation is our aim, and we will do all we can to enable that.

Scores for the Autumn league will be on the Whiteboard for 2 weeks from this Saturday and 1st place getters in Compound and Recurve events will announced in the upcoming Newsletter.


I will be placing the Autumn Scores up on the website for everyone to access so that we have a record of it all.

Field Shoot 9/04/2022

Hello Everyone,


It was a beautiful day for out monthly Field shoot. We had 9 awesome people from out club join us for a day of walking and shooting. For the first round Dave, Jac and Paul Started at target 1. While Barrett, Max and Chris stared at target 13, then 20 Minutes later followed by Gerry, Belinda and Jason on Target 13. while doing our respective half’s it was mostly showing people in our groups who have never shot a FITA Field course before. but fun was had by all.


After doing our respective half’s we stopped for a quick bit and rest. Barrett, Max and Paul had to leave us due to other commitments, so only 2 groups went around. Gerry, Belinda and Jason Started at Target 1, While Dave, Jac and Chris started at Target 13. Due to a Equipment malfunction(Dangerously Frayed D-Loop) Chris retired after shooting one arrow, but still walked the with Dave and Jac.


Lots of Photos were taken on the day as you can see bellow.
