Need To know This Week

Congratulations MGAC!

It was the Archery NZ 80th National Clout & Target Champs in Hamilton over Easter weekend, and Mountain Green archers did us proud with podium placings across most divisions and classes. The stunning weather for four of the five days at the beautiful Resthills Park in Hamilton created near perfect conditions for the 150 or so archers competing. MGAC Life Member Mike Smerdon (pictured) shot one of the opening arrows. 

At the banquet dinner MGAC was awarded the Ryan Shield, which was the result of the monthly interclub postal challenge for recurve archers. Well done to all those who contributed!

We have shared MGAC members’ results on our Facebook page (links below), and you can see the full results at the official website here and photos from David Edmundson here.
