Need To Know This Week

Thank you Adam!


Huge thanks to Adam Maggs, archery hubby and Dad, for mowing the whole range a couple of weeks ago. After a run of hot and wet weather, our grass had got a little out of control, so Adam brought his mower to the range and got stuck in. He even mowed our initials into the bank! (photo credit: Odette Ala’alatoa Dale) You’re really at the cutting edge Adam 😉 Thank you.  

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.

Our guide for entering tournaments and claiming badges

Fleur Maggs, MGAC member and Archery NZ pins and badges registrar (aka “The Badger”), has prepared a series of awesome videos as a guide for entering tournaments and claiming badges.
