Great to see the numbers we got this year. With Covid, numbers have been down for most competitions but not in this case.

There was some great battles especially in the Masters recurve with Tony Vercoe and Warren Kertell drawing on the totals and having to go to the Total 10's and X's to decide the result and then third place only 5 points behind them.. Also with the Senior Mens Recurve only 3 points between first and second, the Masters Mens Compound where there was only 3 points between second and third and in the Masters Mens Barebow where there was only 16 points between first and third. Another highlight was the amazing score posted by Barbara Scott.

Note that we decided to continue with Youth A and Youth B divisions this year (used to be just 1 Youth division) Youth A - Cadet and junior, Youth B- Intermediate Cub and Kiwi. We are reviewing this for next year and considering having shorter distances for Youth B. Any feedback on this will be gratefully received.
