On 7th and 8th October GSA hosted the Indoor leg of the Masters Games
Masters Games 2019 Indoor
There was a near full firing line on both nights. Everyone enjoyed themselves and there was some fine shooting all round.
Thanks to Shirley and Norm
The success of the Indoor event was due largely to the efforts and Shirley and Norman Biggs who did an outstanging job or organising the event. Well Done!
Wooden Target Frames
For the World Crossbow Championships Great Southern Archers built a number of target stands which are now surplus to requirements. These are being offered for sale to club members for $30 ONO.
So if you have the room at home to set up a safe shooting range this is your chance to get a target stand for a bargain price. Contact any Committee member for details. See Events & Links -> For Sale.
