Simply Archery hosted it’s first Traditional and Modern Traditional Invitational Competition and the Punggol Ranch on 19th November 2016. Turnout was a healthy 70+ archers from Singapore and Malaysia, which made Coach Ali Awang a justifiably happy man. 11 Eagles flew up to take part in the competition which was set in seaside Punggol, the furthermost point of Northeast Singapore. We were also treated to support by TBAC members Bob, Liu Ming and Michael :). Hats off to all at Simply Archery for a very well organised and fun filled shoot. The was a large contingent of archers from the Malay community, who came dressed in their traditional attire. This added a lovely cultural flavour to the ongoings and even the Press turned up to have a look. The event was given a 2-minute feature on Suria TV Berita Sukan. 🙂
Eagles did well at the competition and secured the following prizes:
Modern Traditional (Men) – 1st : Falcon; 3rd : Ex-Machina
Modern Traditional (Women) – 1st : Pocahontas; 2nd : Kat
Men’s Challenge Trophy (Modern Traditional) Champion Team : Ex-Machina, Falcon and Tyger
Don Quixote was the only Traditional Archer from TBAC Eagles. He joined the Mujahidin Mosque Team and helped to win the Men’s Traditional Challenge Trophy…. great effort!
We look forward to Simply Archery’s next competition! Do check out their Facebook page for more information and updates : https://www.facebook.com/Simplyarchery/
