Annual Target Archery Winter Shoot

A total of 10 archers participated in multiple classes and divisions at the Annual Target ArcheryWinterShoot on Saturday, 25 and Sunday 26 May at the SFC Sports Grounds in Swakopmund.

Any weather is good weather for archery, but over the past weekend the weather was really good at the coast for the 2024 Winter Shoot which was probably the reason a few Namibian records were improved.

According to theVice President Target Archery Association of Namibia (AAN) Jacqueline Coetzee was the Spirits very high on Saturday for the World Archery Dou-

ble 720, which amounts to 2 x 72

arrows per archer to give a final score out of 1440 and the 18m Qualification Round with a World Archery Double 300 - 2 x 30 arrowsperarcherfora final score out of 600 onSunday Coetzee said, “An Elimination Round is held after the qualification for those


which contain more

than one archer; this is where 2 archers then go head-to-head until the winneremerges.”

SheaddedthattheWinter Shoot competition was a nice warm-up for the upcoming Target Nationals which will be takingplaceinWindhoek on the new Archery Range at Yellowstone Trails in the hills just behind Ludwigsdorf

“The Target Nationals promises to be an ex-

citingonewith24archers participating and includes archers from South Africa.”
