Eagles celebrated the new year by holding a 3D shoot on the 1st Day of 2017 :). Don Quixote volunteered to plan the event and was well assisted by other Eagles, especially Mads and Red Dragon. Our Pochahontas really got into the mood of things and even fitted out our corner in anticipation of the Lunar New Year! There were 3 categories of competition and prizes were award to the top scoring archer in:
- WA Barebow Class
- Modern Traditional Bow Class
- Traditional Bow Class
A special prize was also awarded to the Best Lady Archer. Obviously, Don Quixote is partial to ladies as there was no Best Male Archer prize!
This is the first time that we saw our entire collection of animal targets come out of winter hibernation. We had 6 shooting stations with 2 targets at every station. For the first time, too, we had an elevated shooting position from a slope, which rose about 7m above the target level. It was a nice experience for all and the entire event went on without a hitch.
Eagles also took the opportunity to show our appreciation to the 2 top supporters of our chapter i.e. our Club President, Frankie Yat and Treasurer, Jocelyn Low. We also presented the Simply Archery Challenge Trophy 2016 (recently won by our Eagles Men’s Team) to the Telok Blangah Community Community Club through Frankie, in thanks to the Community Club’s solid support for our archery activities.
Artist was out of action due to an injury but he put his off-day to good use and made a video of our event. You can see Artist’s YouTube production HERE :). You can see that we all had a great time!
