A fine crisp Wednesday evening made for a most enjoyable night, 20 starters lined up and the MVA Wingham Boys were once again here to keep the locals honest!!
The 30 shot format was joined by a 3D “Challenge”, the “STEEL CAT” shoot off, and a special “novelty prizemoney shot”(which you shot with your own arrow on a club beginner’s Bow at 20 mtrs. No-one was good enough to “earn” the $.
Grant ( the scribe /scorer) had a hard day at work and was giving nothing away. At the halfway mark Owen, Heath, Rod and Peter J were neck ‘n’ neck. Peter J was thrilled to win the “lucky door”prize (“Far Side” book and a DVD of “Manpower”) Rumour has it that later that night at home he watched the DVD on his own!!
The ladies award was won by Paula who loved the huge “Rasta Monkey” stuffed toy.
Sausage sandwich/hot coffee/tea/ warm fire, spurred everyone on to the finish with some fine shooting.
The “3D Challenge”was contested by Nat, Courtney and Owen. Owen shot a dubious 8 which was good enough to win.
The “Steelcat” shoot off saw 7 archers step up. The first six missed and shredded their arrows- then Nick P stepped up and nailed it for the win!! Bragging rights to Nick!!
Encouragement Award to Heath for climbing out of bed and turning up. Youth Award to new comer James, who’s looking forward to getting his own bow soon.

b) Paul for shooting Geoff’s target!!!
