Club tar­gets go 3D

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT - ❏ Bran­don Livesay

TAR­GET prac­tice will take on a new mean­ing for the North Bur­nett Field Archers.

The club has ac­quired life­size 3D tar­gets of five boar, three deer, two goats, a dingo, a cat, a fox and a rab­bit.

The 3D tar­gets were ob­tained through a QGC community grant of about $2800.

The club also raised $230 to­wards the new tar­gets, through a bar­be­cue for Cy­cle Queens­land riders in Septem­ber.

Pauleen Dakin said the new tar­gets would be “fan­tas­tic” for the club.

“They will be some­thing diffe- rent for the peo­ple to shoot at,” she said.

“It’s great for the ju­niors and the se­niors.”

The archery club is look­ing for new mem­bers and will host a come and try day and sausage siz­zle to un­veil the 3D tar­gets on Jan­uary 20.

“It’s great for self-es­teem – if you can hit a tar­get, it feels pretty good,” Dakin said.

“We have a fan­tas­tic group of kids.

“It’s for all ages and all abil­i­ties.”

The club is at theGayn­dah Pis­tol Range. For more de­tails about join­ing the club email nb­farchers@hot­mail.com.
