The 2nd Sembawang Archery 3D Open 2017 was held on 9th April. What a lot of fun! This year the format was slightly different and we had 9 x 3D Targets and 1 x 2D Novelty Target. The targets were arranged along routes of 5 targets each and archers were divided into details comprising 4 to 5 archers.
Safety was well considered and only 1 detail was allowed onto each route at any one time. All was orderly and the organisers handled the whole event very well. This was a One Arrow per Target Event and it meant that archers only discharged a total of 10 arrows in the range. You can see how the course was laid out below:
The most interesting target was at Route 1 No. 5. Archers had to stand on large tyre and shoot at a 40cm 6-ring target, while ensuring that their arrow passed through a suspended tyre! No one scored any points! :p
This year, there were about 50 participants (7 Eagles) in 3 classes of competition i.e. Compound, Barebow and Traditional. Our Eagles did well and made a clean sweep of in the Barebow category. Congratulations and well done to Falcon, Venator and Dark Knight who secured 1st, 2nd and 3rd places respectively. You can see the happy smiling faces below.
We thank Sembawang Archery Club, our supporters and friends for making the 3D Open such an enjoyable experience. See you again at the SAC 3D Open 2018!
