Our first Nite Shoot

Tues. 18th June 2013

Merv, Peter and helpers have been working for near six months to build, acquire and install the necessary gear for our Nite shoot. The light towers were great and the under roof floodlights complemented them nicely to “light up the range”.

16 shooters signed up on the night and were keen to try something different. The night consisted of 10 x 3 shot rounds @ 20 mtrs. The 11 ring is in play, and the small “penny circle” in the middle is counted as an 11+ . (in case of drawn scores at the end of the night ).

Mountain View archers (Wingham) had 4 entrants and a couple of juniors. Thanks to our full time scorer – Grant for a job well done.

We will have 4 x Tuesday night night shoots with intervals of 3 to 4 weeks between shoots – with a cumulative point score.

A good time was had by all – with some excellent shooting by Owen and Nick (three shots – 3 x 11+ scores– hard to beat.)

The top five were

  1. Owen Kirkman. 319 pts
  2. Nick Peterson.318 pts
  3. Craig Hales 317 pts
  4. John Woods. 311 pts
  5. Merv Palmer 304 pts

Get your sight lights fitted!! Next night shoot is  Tuesday, 30 July, 6 PM start finish by 8:30 PM

Try it – you’ll like it.
