Ipswich 2019

3DAAA QLD State Series

Well Ipswich kicked off the start of another year of some tough competition. We had a turnout of 97 competitors for the weekend, with some travelling from across the border, thank you all for coming up.

The weather gods stayed kind to us for the weekend, except for a light shower Saturday afternoon. We seen some real challenging courses this year, our range setters definitely didn’t hold back this year, with the use of the new 3daaa approved cougar targets making a debut, and making for some definite head scratching shots. But still didn’t stop Warren Swan, Brenton Addington, Brett Pirlo and Stefan Ivanisevic from scoring 100 each for the weekend.

Saturday afternoon there was also a great mentoring session held with Dustyn Oloman, Brett Pirlo, Richard Peters and Scott Hayden sharing their knowledge.

Saturday night seen some great food, with a spit roast and veggies for dinner with no one going home hungry, and good ole bonfire with lots of laughs had by all.

Sunday seen 2 more great courses with plenty of tricky shots. Some fun for the kids thanks to Ray Knight and Brett Pirlo, also a big thanks to everyone who donated prizes for our raffles. And then it was on to the serious side of business with the top 10 shootout and presentations, congratulations to Steve Shorten for taking out the aided, and Richard Peters for taking out the unaided top 10 shootouts.

Ipswich won the club team event with a score total of 1429.

We had 2 sponsored teams competing seeing Bohning Archery winning with a score of 943, but Venom Archery was very close behind with 941.

A big thankyou goes to Brett Pirlo and his crew for organising an amazing feed Saturday night,
