By muster time there were 82 archers registered to shoot on the weekend of July 7 /8 at Lakeside Bowmen 40th Anniversary and 9th Annual Jules Shield Trad Shoot, which the club was extremely pleased with. Some had travelled from Gympie, Kingaroy, Tenterfield and even Newcastle NSW and also a fellow who has recently moved north from Victoria.
For this shoot we had the choice of 2 X 15 3D target courses, the Red as a 2 arrow round and the Yellow as a 1 arrow round for Saturday. The speed round is close to the beginning of the Red course, the moving target is toward the end of the Red and close to the start of the Yellow, with the rolling disk at the practice butts and the 60 sec Hunt round toward the back of the camping area. Our group walked through to the Yellow course to start with the 1 arrow round, and over the entire course we only saw one other group. Once complete we did part of the Red 2 arrow range by slipping into a gap between groups at target 11, then through to target 15. Next the moving target before heading back to the clubhouse for a short break, and to then start on target 1. There were just a couple of short showers of rain that fell while we were out doing this part of the course. Once complete we had a bite of lunch then off to do the rest of the novelties. There was a small wait at the 60sec speed round which gave us an opportunity to have a chat with some other groups.
There was no Muster on Sunday so we arranged to meet about 8.00am and this time we started on the Red range which was the 1 arrow round, as others headed to the Yellow 2 arrow round. We flowed from the Red range to the Yellow range, then we had a short break before doing the new “shoot through the hole at the Eagles claws” target using flu flus with blunts, and then the rolling disk. Once everyone was back and had lunch, they ran the Top 10 shootout, with the eventual winner being Dave Pender.
Congratulations must go to the Range Captain (and his helpers) for setting up the targets in some quite realistic hunting situations, and we won’t say any more about target 15. A big thank you goes to all who helped run the shoot and also to those who participated to make it a successful shoot. Here’s looking forward to next years which will be special, being the 10th Anniversary.
