Field QRE was held this morning. Only a small group of 6 shot. As usual the Barossa put on great weather. Thanks to Bailey Wildman for making the 75minute trip out for his first time giving the BAC field course a try.

Don't forget we are going to schedule a field shoot the last Saturday of each month.

Tania Rothe and Lee Rothe - Fairly long You tube video but this guy is really good. You can see the amazement on his face. To be noted - he shows "Dennis Rothe Memorial Shoot" Medal for 2021.

Barossa turned on the weather for this year’s Dennis Rothe Memorial. With only 5 spots left there was some stiff competition on the day in all classes.

Kyle Lewcock earned his right to have his name on the Trophy with the highest score of the day 888.

Male Compound Micheal Lange 881.
Female Compound Vicky Braddy 751.
Male Recurve Steven Hann 785
Female Recurve Jenny Semmler 660.
Crossbow Mark Goodyer 750.
Jr Male Compound Kyle Lewcock 888.
Jr Male Recurve Tom Perry 533.
Jr Female Recurve Andrea McWhorter 629.

The Winner of the Field and Target double header was Matthew Pellew.

Don't forget to get you Peoples Choice Tickets to help the club finish our new clubrooms. Look on our website or FB page for more info.

Inaugural Dave Allery Field Shoot, it was a beautiful day to find out who would be the 1st to have their name burnt onto the Trophy. Ben Kilsby travelled all the way from Mt Gambier and it was worth while, taking out the overall result with a score of 376. Craig Perry 1st in Male Recurve 218 and Jenny Semmler Female recurve 124. A great time had by all. This was part one of two events held at the Barossa Archery Club, the 2nd event is the Dennis Rothe Memorial on Sunday. ... See MoreSee Less

The Club AGM was held on Sunday. It turned out to be a fantastic day for shooting and we had an early use of the new club rooms that are still in construction. Congratulations to everyone who shot, with Kyle winning the raffle and walking away with a shooting bag and wine (for his parents !). Thanks to Archery Supplies , Jenny Semmler 919 Wines , and Matt Pellew for the prizes.

There were a couple of changes on the committee. Shane Moll joins the committee for the first time, taking the position as secretary. Paul Bonner has stepped down as President however will stay on as a floor member. Paul has done a fantastic job during his time as President, being the driving force behind the Club room. Michael Lange has moved from secretary to the role of President. The committee would like to thank Mark Goodyer, who has stepped down from the position of floor member, for his time on the committee.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who came out today and volunteered their time to get the shed frame up. It was a massive effort by everyone to get it done in such good time. Looking forward to getting it finished and making it a place BAC members can call home and visitors feel welcome.

And now you need to start planning the indoor centre add on

Lunch break and discussing the next steps.

Cant wait for it to be finished.

Looking good

Well done people.

A reminder to Club Members to come along on Sunday to our Handicap Shoot, last held sometime in the Dark Ages at BAC.
For those who don't quite understand what it is (to be honest thats basically everyone) , its really no different to any other shoot. However, in the depths of Archers Diary a mystical process takes place, and a handicap allowance will be added to your score once you have finished your round.
The handicap allowance gives a score that can be rated against everyone else in the club, regardless of skill level or even what round you shot (if you are a novice archer you have a real advantage in these handicap events !)
So come along on Sunday and have some fun, shoot well, and see where you rank . You never know, you may walk away with a bottle of wine or a handful of kit-kats!

GSA held the inaugural Fairweather Invitational field shoot today. The BAC had two teams enter, coming away with a first and second place. Congratulations to Callan, Paul and Shane for a first place and to Matt, Craig and Michael for second place. This shoot was a mixed handicap event, with each team comprising a compound, recurve and barebow/longbow shooter. Awarding the medals was Rob and Helen Fairweather, founding members of GSA.

Thanks to GSA for rolling out great weather, a really enjoyable course and for holding a unique event. We are looking forward to returning next year.

And I didn't even lose an arrow today! 😂

Nice shot! What this also clearly shows is that the arrow is well clear of the bow within a fraction of a second, meaning you have no chance to influence it after release - so your setup prior to release is super important.

Is there field tomorrow? I could have come today if I’d known!
