Executive Challenge Team Competition - Its a Wrap - April 7

The Illawarra Archers Executive Team Challenge has been completed for another year. Another excellent day, with one team from each of Northern Archers, Warringah Archers, Southern Highlands Archers, and Illawarra Archers. A high spirited competition with fun had by all.


Fiona kept all the shooters out of their comfort zones throughout the day with her wicked 3rd end challenges. Numerous comments along the lines of "But I can't even aim out there! Its not in the centre!!!" were heard. Some pushed their luck shooting at the white rings and were risk/rewarded with wood instead. At least one shooter has vowed to find the wand targets and donate them to the fire gods.


Oh yeah, and there was scoring and prize awards. 

1st place, and the coveted Golden Arrow Team Award, went to Team Northern

2nd place to Southern Highlands

3rd place to The Executive

4th place to The Bow Job


Many thanks to Gordon for running the BBQ, Andris for the shopping, Glenn for the setup, and especially to Fiona for her organisation and for running the day.
