The Festival of Field Archery is an event incorporating
The ANSW State Field Championships (16th-17th)
Armidale Archers IFAA Field Course (19th)
Tamworth UnMarked Field Course (21st)
The Australian Open Field Championships (22nd - 25th)
*You don't have to participate in every event*
The Archery NSW State Field Championships consist of shooting the Armidale Archers field course twice over two days. Archers outside of NSW are welcome to participate in this event, however, will be competing as visitors and are unable to claim state champion. It will be good practise for the Australian Open the following weekend.
There will be a social function on Saturday evening.
Medal Presentations will follow shortly after the conclusion of shooting on Day 2.
Armidale Archers are hosting a day of IFAA on the Armidale Archery range.
This event is NOT registered as an official event through Archery Australia or World Archery. Essentially, it is going to be a relaxed day of shooting for the enjoyment and experience of IFAA.
You can choose to shoot 1 target, 14 targets, 28 targets or whatever you please. Your group can stop for some lunch or rest at any safe time. As long as all groups are off the course by 4pm.
Michael Burgess of Armidale Archers has an extremely challenging unmarked field course located just in his backyard! Partaking in this event is highly recommended for those shooting in the World Field Championships, as this is just a taste of what it will be like. *This course has very challenging terrain and archers who wish to take part need to be physically capable and have sturdy footwear.* There is very limited practice facility. We may be hiring a bus to all travel together for those who wish.
THERE IS $15,000 WORTH OF CASH AND PRIZES UP FOR GRABS - TO FIND OUT MORE KEEP READING
