Singapore National Games 2016

The biennial Singapore National Games was held from 6-7 August, just before National Day (9th August). Archers were a blessed bunch as the Marina Bay floating platform was selected as the venue. What a spectacular site!

It felt a setting for a world class event :).  Click on this  link  to see the registration requirements and rules. Have a look………………! This was a Team only competition with 7 classes/sub-classes of competitors.

About 450 archers took part in the event and it was great to see young and old having great fun on THE PLATFORM. Eagles fielded 2 teams in the Masters Recurve category and went up against full recurve archers. We did not do too badly and one team secured 3rd place. All-in-all, it was an enjoyable event with a carnival-like atmosphere but the weather was really hot, hot, HOT!

As the platform was totally open, we had to deal with more gusty winds than we were used to at our home range. No matter, barebow archers are an adaptable lot.

And MORE Happy Archers!
Some went home with medals and prize money but everyone went home with nice memories. Well done organisers and archers!

The entire event was very well run and went smoothly. We look forward to the next installment of the Singapore National Games in 2018!
