Byron Shire Archery Club is hosting the first annual South of the Border Matchplay Competition for young archers this Saturday at the Cavanbah Centre.

The SOBS is a unique tournament held for the region’s youth archers, Club president Vinnie Bleakley said.

‘The format of the event is a 72-arrow ranking round followed by knockout matches. The event attracts archers of all levels from new beginners to national and state champions,’ he said.

‘The event is attracting a lot of attention and is looking like being a great day.

‘Everyone is more than welcome to come down and watch the action from 9am, you will be able to witness some of the region’s best young archers competing head to head,’ he said.

Entries close on Thursday night (May 25).

The Club also needs ‘a small army of volunteers to help the event run smoothly, so if you are free to lend a hand in any form for any amount of time please let me know,’ Vinnie said.
