Archers win at state titles

Tenterfield now have three state champions in the sport of traditional archery.

Britta Strahl, Willem Gutmanis and Adelaide Gutmanis all finished as winners in their division with Benjamin Gutmanis also medalling as a runner-up.

Traditional Archery Australia held their State title Muster last month.

Traditional Archery is again becoming a popular sport and now has 24 clubs nation wide.

This State title shoot was held in Woolgoolga NSW on June 19 and 20.

Around 100 competitors from all areas took part in the competition.

Tenterfield Traditional Archers, situated in Dam Lane Tenterfield, 10 of club members attended the State Muster and we're successful in their divisions.

Tenterfield Traditional archers club is a small club with many talented with their traditional shooting skills.

Tenterfield should be proud, as four or the Archery club members came home with medals.

Our club is so very proud of our champions.

Britta Strahl took out the Ladies Tradition Recurve division, Willem Gutmanis took out the Junior recurve division closely following in score was his younger brother Benjamin Gutmanis, who came second in the Junior division.

And our youngest member of the club, Adelaide Gutmanis won the Novice division in Traditional recurve.

Meanwhile, back at the club grounds, it's is such a social club.

Every second month we have our club competitions and a barbecue day, and most weekends there is someone around flinging an arrow or two.

The club is still very young and having had to rebuild after being burnt our in the fires it is slowly but surely going full steam ahead.

The club needs members.

It is a fantastic family sport, it is wonderful for any age men, ladies and children that's are supervised but an adult parent.

You don't need to be the most athletic person to take part in archery, it is a sport that caters for all abilities.

You just need to be prepared to have fun.

We have a trial three month membership period for a minimal cost where people can join the club as a probationary member to see how they would enjoy the sport and yes, it is a sport.
