2015 New Zealand IBO Nationals

The IBO Series for this year is now complete with the 2015 National IBO Championship being held at Mt Tiger Archery Club - Whangarei - on the 17-18th October.

As with the whole series the weather had chosen to be kind to us and with our programme for the weekend everything ran to plan.

There was competition in most divisions and some of the divisions being very close.

2015 IBO Series Final

Round 4 and Series Final was done and dusted today.  Bay of Islands Archery Club certainly turned the weather on for what can only be described as "one out of the bag" considering that the weather forcast was for thunderstorms and wind.  Well we have clear blue skies and only a smattering of rain and the day was all done, prize giving for the day completed followed by the Series and we were all heading home at 4.30pm.

IBO Series -Rnd 3 - Whitford

Round 3 of the Series is done and dusted and Whitford was considered to be a challenge.  With the temperature sitting around 1 degree - some said -1 degree - which truly was a breathtaking start to what turned out to be a very sunny day with clear blue skies for as far as the eye can see no clouds anywhere.  Did not help though in the forest/bush area the course was set around.  Still cold and dark in some places.

2015 IBO Series - Round 2

Round 2 has now gone with 73 archers attending and the weather doing the "Franklin" threat of is it or isn't going to rain.  A couple of showers but a very biting wind which came from each direction depending on which part of the course you were on.

Franklin Club worked hard to create a challenging course and to also keep the round archer friendly with the walking and positioning of pegs.

Dargaville Archery Club - Round 1

This year the IBO round at Dargaville did not require a boat, waders or even an umbrella, with only a couple of very small dustings of rain the rest of the day was sunny with slight breeze.  Some say perfect shooting conditions.

2014 - Round 3 - Mt Tiger Archery club

Round 3 at Mt Tiger was to prove to be one of those days out of the bag - sun shining, no wind and a challenging course.  Mt Tiger having worked on their Morepork Course for something a little different.  The day saw 82 archers set to meet their challenge and as the scores shows some very good results came in after round 1.

Daley Jones and Joseph Zwaans top scoring the day with 602 points each with Gene Gray at their heels with a score of 600.  There is plenty of hot competition through all the divisions so Round 4 and final it will be all on.

2014 - IBO Round 2 - Dargaville

The rain stopped, the wind went away and clear blue skies prevailed.  Who would have thought after the worst rain in Northland for ages.  Getting to Dargaville Archery Club from the North proved to be the first challenge of the day and many thanks to all of you from the North who made it.  My thanks goes to the Downer Crew who offer to transport me across the flooded area so that Bob Morris could rescue me - but Bob was able to cross the flooded area in his trusty 4x4 .  Those coming from the South had the challenge of "pot hole dodging" - all in all 68 shooter

Host Club - Twin Coast Archery Club.

It was an awesome week leading up to the final right through until Friday night and bang Saturday sent the rain down in fine drizzle at Kaiwaka which only helped to make for an interesting slip, sliding day of archery.

80 shooters were on the start line and the day progressed well with only several heavy downfalls to help keep the archers on their toes.  The wind also making for interesting arrow flight for some.
