It will commence immediately following the conclusion of the first day of

Last year there appeared at some venues confusion over how the target faces
are to be set up. To assist everyone the Officials Committee have put
together a comprehensive document as to how target faces should be set up
to ensure compliance with the rules.
This document can be found at the following link –
The Australian College of Applied Psychology (ACAP) is currently conducting
research that investigates motivation for physical activity. The research
is being conducted by Tegwen King and supervised by Professor Chris Pratt
at the ACAP and is ethically approved by the ACAP Human Research Ethics
Committee, Approval Number: 141200514.
Archery Australia members are invited to take part in an online survey. The
survey will be collecting data from those who undertake a mostly individual
sport such as archery. The research involves completion of a short online
questionnaire that takes 5 -10 minutes (containing 35 multiple choice

We came across some great archery photos in the Archery Australia office
recently and it got us thinking what other interesting archery photography
was currently residing with our members. In order to find out we decided to
run an Archery Photo Competition so that you can share some of the
wonderful photography our sport generates.
You might have a great action shot, a photo that captures the fun and
camaraderie of your club, a funny picture or something from the historical
archives that shows us about archery from the early days and if you do we
would like to be able to share it. We’ll be posting the best of the photos
on the Archery Australia Facebook page so that everyone can see what the
sport has to offer.
Because it’s a competition, and we all know archers enjoy some friendly
competition, there has to be something for the best pictures. We’ll have
some great Archery Australia shirts, caps and beanies for the best photos
but the real prize will be sharing your pictures with the archery family.
The photos will be judged by the Archery Australia staff.
Visit the link below to find out how to lodge your entry in the competition

ensure the history of the sport is maintained.
