Need To know This Week

Congratulations!
We are delighted to celebrate five MGAC archers for exciting achievements last week. We are so proud of their success and dedication to our sport. 

  • Nuala Edmunson represented New Zealand at the Pacific Games in the Solomon Islands, coming home with a bronze medal and a tonne of amazing experiences! 
  • Jaeda Alaalatoa Dale won female Young Sportsperson of the Year from College Sport Auckland, for archery.
  • Akuhata Norman Hewlett won male Young Sportsperson of the Year from College Sport Auckland, for archery. 
  • Mikey Fraser-House broke the New Zealand record for Under 14 boys at the Evening on the Maunga last week for his score of 616.
  • Kerry Hoole broke the New Zealand record for 50+ Mens traditional bow at the Evening on the Maunga last week for his score of 493.



Could you be our Club Champs lead?

We’re looking for someone (or someones) to help organise the 2024 MGAC Club Championships events. This includes our indoor target champs, outdoor target champs, field champs, and clout. We have tentatively set dates, we just need someone with a spark to help get things going. There is also an opportunity to reshape how we recognise our club members’ achievements at the prizegiving. If you’d like to learn more, email secretary@mgac.org.nz.



Last chance to get an Archery Teeshirt 

Orders close on 30 November, so don’t wait any longer! With two designs- Eat, Sleep, Archery, Repeat and I’m sorry I can’t, I have archery these are available in adult and youth sizes, with two colour options for each design.

All profits will go towards upgrading our indoor range: so not only do they look good, they’re doing good too.

Browse the full range and buy from our online shop (to save on shipping click “pick up from the club”).
