Due to the increase in popularity of archery in the area over the recent years, a new club has been established in the Light region.

Based in Kapunda, the Light Archers held their first shoot on Sunday, June 7.

The newly formed club opened by shooting a clout at their new grounds at the Kapunda Harness Racing Club.

Results from the inaugural Clout shoot:

  • Barebow Compound - L Bishop 217, B Mengersen 105.
  • Barebow Recurve: L Schulz 244, A Girke 106, C Girke 71, P Mengersen 63.

With the passionate energy to grow the sport further, the club will soon be holding beginners courses with two fully qualified club coaches.
