A small band of intrepid archers left St George Archers on the June long weekend to battle the cold and windy elements at Sydney Olympic Archery Park for the State Short Course Championships. The difficulties of the day were rewarded with great results - Colleen placed first in the master women's compound division and Stuart equalled this effort by placing first in the master men's recurve section. Keith finished second in the veteran men's crossbow division. A job well done!!
