MOUNT Clay Archers have hosted their annual three-day competition, which drew archers from several other clubs from throughout Victoria and South Australia.
There were 66 archers that competed and enjoyed the whole weekend with a lot of positive feedback received.
The weather held out beautiful for the whole event which was a big plus right from the start.
The event started with a two-arrow round in which both arrows were scored.
The same afternoon saw many archers trying their hand on the long shot novelty where archers using the club bows set at lower poundages to even the event out the field, they had to shoot at a 3D target set out at 70 metres for adults, 40 metres for cubs/juniors.
The closest to the marked score zone was declared the winner.
After several attempts from all competing the adults section was won by Tim Kelly, from the Colac Otway Archers, and Cub/Junior section won by local Mount Clay Archers member Emma Rethus.
