Archery Open Day for Veterans in Townsville
Time & Location
About The Event
ARCHERY HAS IT ALL - RELAXED ATMOSPHERE- BIT OF EASY EXERCISE
As part of a national program run by Archery Australia, in partnership with Veteran Sport Australia,Townsville Target Archers are running a target archery course for veterans. You'll learn the basics, try your hand at a friendly competition and have fun along the way. After you have completed the introduction course, the club would like family and friends around 10.30am, to meet at the field at the start of the competition to cheer on their veteran. A sausage sizzle is planned as the final arrows strikes home for everyone to enjoy during which the winner will be announced.
Townsville Target Archers is a small not for profit organisation and as such an event entry fee of $40 will go towards covering costs associated with this event (loss of arrows, target faces, butt damage, and sausage sizzle.) This can only be accessed through Archery Australia's website events page and click on the REGISTER button at the top of the page.

The page on the Archery Australia website says this:
No personal bows or equipment will be allowed onto the range. All equipment will be supplied by the club. Veteran details need to be presented on the day.
On payment and completion of the registration forms you will be entitled to attend the club for a period of 1 month from the date of the course. After this date full membership to the club through the Archery Australia website is mandatory.
You will need to be at the club no later than 7:45am on the 7th of March, so that you may be fitted with safety gear and shown how to ready your equipment for the day.
What to Bring:
- A pleasant attitude - we have enough grumpy old buggers here already
- A yearning to have some fun, try something new and meet people outside your regular sphere of associates.
- Closed in shoes
- Fitted sleeved shirt (no loose/baggy shirts/singlets, as this will interfere with your shooting)
The NQ Games start 10th - 13th April so if you show some talent, it may be the start of a new venture for you and your family.
