In case you missed it New Zealand archers have a great opportunity to shoot an IFAA World Indoor Championships in 2019 as it will be held in Wellington New Zealand. 20 yds (18m) is an achievable distance for archers of all ages & bow types.
Early Bird registrations for this event close 30th November 2018 - entries will still be open after this, but you won't get the early bird discount.
Archery NZ has become a registered Club with NZFAA for their 2018.19 financial year (which runs from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019).
This means that Archery NZ members can become members of NZFAA via Archery NZ with the payment of $10. This membership fee is over and above the Archery NZ membership fee.
The $10 membership fee can be paid at any time from now – but must be made prior to competing in an NZFAA event.
Please note that archers are required to have two ‘qualification scores’ before they will be allowed to shoot at the IFAA World Indoor Championships.
Payments are to be made to Archery NZ (online) and the specific NZFAA membership form to be completed and sent to the National Secretary to ensure that we have all of the necessary information.
Alternatively, you could join a NZ Field Archery Club. Further information on clubs can be found via the link at the end of this notice.
In order to be eligible to compete at the IFAA World Indoor Championships, you must have two scores from NZFAA sanctioned events. These are necessary to prove that you have experience in shooting at this type of event and understand the rules, scoring etc necessary to ensure your safety and the smooth running of the event.
There will be a number of opportunities provided in the lead up to the World Champs in 2019.
