3DAAA Shoots Explained
3DAAA Rules and Divisions
|3DAAA SANCTIONED EVENTS
These are 3D competition shoots held everywhere from Victoria to QLD.
Most of you will think these are for the hard core, competitive archers but they are more than that. They are a great opportunity to get away from it all, go camping with the family and have a wonderful weekend shooting and having fun. These shoots are held over two days, shooting 30 targets on Saturday and 20 on Sunday. There is usually a Top 10 held on Saturday afternoon as well. This is a great opportunity to see the best of our archers put their talent to the test.
Anyone who comes along is welcome to join what we have named "Camp Caboolture", where we all camp together and have a lot of fun. It is a great atmosphere for the whole family whether you are competing or not. What better way to spend a weekend!
Now that 3DAAA have introduced a Non Competitive division it is the perfect opportunity to come along and try a 3D competition without the stress of having to do well. Of course you can always join your division based on your age and equipment used, and see how you go. You might just surprise yourself!! If you shoot in a competitive division you will then be eligible for Shooter of the Year, and a trophy in the QLD Series (if you place in the Top 3).
You must shoot at least 3 shoots in QLD and the Nationals to be eligible. There are also trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place at each 3DAAA event that you attend and all the kids are (usually) given a certificate or some sort of participation/encouragement award. Of course you don't have to go to compete at that level just yet if you don't want to, but like I said it's a great place to learn our sport and to have some fun.
On an average of once a month we hold a 3D club shoot (marked in yellow on your calendar at the club).
These shoots are when we put out our 3D targets, and there will be 20 of them placed around the club grounds.
For a cost of $15 per adult, $8 for juniors and kids under 12 for free, you can shoot all 20 targets twice. We also put on lunch for a small fee of about $3.00 - $5.00.
So normally you would shoot 20 targets, stop and have lunch and then go and shoot the 20 targets again. You will also be given a score card so that you can keep track of your scores.
