Bow­men ex­cel at World Masters Games

Wanneroo Times - - Sport -

FIVE Be­nara Bow­men club mem­bers rep­re­sented Aus­tralia in archery at the World Masters Games held in New Zealand this year.

Com­pound archers Phil Arthur, of El­len­brook, David Crab­tree, of Wan­neroo, and Nic Oosthuizen, of Joondalup, took part in the April com­pe­ti­tion along with re­curve archers Stu­art Pilcher, of Marangaroo, and Sue Swains, of Alki­mos.

They com­peted in field, tar­get and in­door cat­e­gories against archers from the USA, Ger­many and UK.

Swains won sev­eral medals, in­clud­ing gold in her in­door divi­sion, sil­ver in IFAA and field and bronze in tar­get.

Pilcher also won medals – gold in tar­get, sil­ver in field and bronze in IFAA and in­door – while Arthur won a bronze medal for in­door.

“The scores were very close amongst all di­vi­sions, with only one or two points be­tween plac­ings. All the Be­nara Bow­men Team agree it was an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence; they met and com­peted against some won­der­ful peo­ple from other coun­tries and the field course is the best any of them have ever had the op­por­tu­nity to shoot on,” club com­mit­tee mem­ber Ta­mara Locke said.

Be­nara Bow­men shoot ev­ery Satur­day morn­ing at the In­ter­na­tional Shoot­ing Com­plex in White­man Park.
