A four-person team from the Byron Shire Archery Club has retuned from the South Queensland Archery Society (SQAS) short-range championship with three medals.

‘It was a really good weekend. I didn’t shoot as well as I could, but I still managed to get a silver in the open men’s recurve, and David French was running fourth, but pushed on to get a bronze in the masters men’s recurve,’ club president Damien Nardi said.

The other medalist on the day was the club’s junior archer Daisy Stocks who won a silver medal in the cub female recurve section.

Coin Little shot sixth in the open men’s compound event.

‘The BSAC now has 35 members and has recently been “blooming”,’ Damien said.

The SQAS happens once a year and draws in archers from Toowomba, Brisbane and the Gold Coast. There were roughly 60 archers at this year’s event.

‘We try and send a team up every year, so we can fly the club colours,’ he said.

The next event on the club’s calendar is the SQAS target championships in two months.
