3.  22nd Warringah Kidbow/Youth Tournament 

Another successful Tournament held on Saturday 4th November 2023   

The rain held off for most o fthe morning which allowed our young competitors to enjoy still shooting conditions. Who would have thought that there would be two 'Robin Hoods' in the same tournament....and on the same target! The first was when Anna Young from Warringah shot her arrow directly into Ananya Gorthi's arrow. A couple of ends later....Anna Young shot through her own arrow which had scored 10 already! Great shooting Anna and Ananya! Photos of the Tournament are now on our Facebook page. Thank you to Greg and Ready Electrical for their continued support of the 22nd Warringah Kidbow/Youth Tournament.
