Twin tournaments for Twin City

TWIN City Archers hosted some 30 shooters from across the state for a two-day 3D Archery tournament, featuring 50 different rubber animal targets set out at varying distances through trees and up and down hills.

After three days pegging out the course, the competition proved fun yet challenging and was well received by visitors.

There was also a non-competitive event with five archers taking part.

Five members of Twin City Archery Club missed the festivities as they travelled to compete at Diamond Valley Archers in Greensborough at the Victorian State Short Range Championships.

Short range target events are shot at a maximum distance of 60 metres on a 122 centimetre target face, with a maximum score of 900 available.

The TCAG members shot well in near perfect conditions.
