Straight shoot­ing Lake­view Archers

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

South Waikato’s Lake­view Archers have been right on tar­get this year, bring­ing home the In­ter-Club Se­ries shield.

The club, which par­tic­i­pates in an in­ter- club com­pe­ti­tion be­tween Thames Val­ley Deer­stalk­ers As­so­ci­a­tion and Franklin County Archers, dom­i­nated the se­ries by win­ning all but four of the 14 di­vi­sions.

This year the se­ries be­gan at Lake­view Archers with club mem­bers turn­ing out from as far as Huntly and Te Puke. Com­pe­ti­tion start­ing hot­ting up in the sec­ond round be­fore the fi­nal was held in Franklin.

Pres­i­dent Chris­tine Fin­negan said this was the first taste of real com­pe­ti­tion for some club mem­bers.

‘‘Oth­ers were sea­soned to reg­u­lar na­tional and in­ter­na­tional tour­na­ments as the ages range from 70 to 7 years.’’

The over­all point scor­ing was based on club mem­bers par­tic­i­pat­ing, with only seven points sep­a­rat­ing first and sec­ond.
