Our last winter night shoot on the Saturday evening was greeted by nice crisp weather and 21 starters. The Wingham guys were once again after the vast array of quality prizes!! Everyone was keen, and the locals were determined to keep the trophy, “at home” !!!
The first five (3 arrow) rounds saw some great archery. Rod was once again on the money, Stuart had his Trad bow firing, trying to join “The 14 Club”. Paul and Paula and the family were having a great time.
Halftime came, a quick snag & coffee, a change of targets and a warm up around the campfire and we were ready for whatever the Gods threw at us.
Two of our top 3 (Peter & Geoff) were away hunting, so several had their eye on those spots.
We passed the hat to fund a set of “night vision” glasses for Tony our scorer ..He definitely needs some help!!!
After some fine shooting the night drew to a close. It was good to some of our youth shooters..Sam, Ryan and Mark..do quite well on the night.
The “Frisbee Novelty Shot” had a line up, while scores were totalled. If you didn’t land the Frisbee on the Tarp- you didn’t get a shot.!!
The 5 “3D Challenge” archers- Danny, Stuart, Gary, Paula, and Sam had a difficult 26 meter’s semi-lit Wolverine. Gary and Sam needed a shoot off for closet to centre. Sam surprised everyone ( and himself) to absolutely nail it, for the win!! Gary was gracious in defeat.
Geoff won a “cowboy novel” for consistently (over the three nights) hitting the wrong target!! Brad won the lucky door prize.
We thank everyone, especially the helpers, for supporting the series and hope all had a good time.
