Archers add a feather to caps

Western Times - - SPORT -

ARCHERY: The Charleville field archers had a suc­cess­ful shoot last week­end, with bow­men hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to sharpen their aim and hone their skills.

A num­ber of new shoot­ers were in­tro­duced to the sport and rel­ished the chance to hit a few bullseyes on a warm morn­ing in the south­west.

The event was a three ar­row with a top score of 400m and a max­i­mum dis­tance of 48m.

Barry Street top-scored, shoot­ing an im­pres­sive 382 points with the com­pound bow with sights.

Sec­ond over­all was Robert Street, who scored 292 with a re­curve bow.

Third place on the podium went to Brock Carr, who shot 288 off a re­curve bow off a cub peg.

For those look­ing to get into archery, phone the club on 4654 1786.
