MEMORIES Best memories are the great people Ive met and shot with over the many years , seeing the sport grow as it has and special memories of the earlier days shooting with greats like Jamie Bradshaw and Brett Pirlo , these guys helped make the sport what it is today , and still today Brett is one of the very best out on the ranges . Equipment has evolved , Jamie back in the those days shot with a 12 inch stabilizer and a scope that was it and still shoot scores that would be the equivalent of todays , it was amazing . I still remember the first 3D shoot I went to at Inverell , the target were shaped out of cool-lite and covered with hessian and then painted , Rod Shorten was amongst the organizers of that event it was so exciting . It was the start of 3D shooting in Australia and I was proud to be part of those early days . As long as I can still shoot a bow I will continue in the sport , which is producing some amazing Archers .
