ANSW Metropolitan Postal

2020 Archery NSW Postal Metropolitan Shoot

Due to Covid19, the event will be run as a postal event over 2 days, to enable archers to shoot the event at their own clubs.

This is an OPEN distance event only. There are no age divisions as this is a handicap event.

Crossbows permitted in this event.

you are welcome to shoot this event, but mind that there is no reduction in distance & you are required to shoot as a Recurve.
