Welcome one and all to the Official 3D Archery Association of Australia 3DAAA Website. This website is for all those interested in Archery in general and 3D Archery in particular. As usual this site will attempt to pictorially document and archive as much of the 3D Archery Association of Australia competition shooting years as possible. So check back regularly as we will be updating content frequently. If there is anything you would like to see online here then please email us and we will see what we can do.
All other results will be available when completed but this could take up to a week so your patience is appreciated.
2015 Rules of Shoot Updated (06/12/14)
The Committee wishes to thank all those people who took the time and trouble to send their feedback regarding the most recent division changes.
Every email has been read and discussed with every possible avenue being explored, including the suggestions in many of those emails.
The Committee recognised that the dropping of the Youth Unaided division unwittingly created a void between the cub and adult unaided ranks.
Youth Hunter, a division introduced to fill that void, unfortunately seems not to be suitable so for this reason the Committee has decided to remove Youth Hunter and retain Youth Unaided.
The Rules Of Shoot (Version 1.1) have been updated & are now available by clicking here or on the Rules page.
2015 Calendar & Rules of Shoot are now available (21/11/14)
Membership Processing for Nationals (09/11/14)
Membership processing will cease as at 8.00pm EDST Tuesday 11th November until after Nationals.
Anyone needing to renew their membership should do so prior to that time or they can do so at Nationals.
Online memberships can still be submitted, however you will need to show your receipt at Nationals & your membership or renewal will be processed after November 24th.
Email enquiries can be directed to the Membership Secretary.
New shirts have arrived (07/11/14)
The new shirts have arrived & will be available for purchase at Nationals. Sizes are limited & pre-orders are available - first in best dressed! Shirts cost $50 each so if you want to reserve yours click here to go to the order page.
Membership Form Update (01/11/2104)
The membership form has been updated to clarify the definition of a "family"for membership & tournaments. Would clubs please update their members & replace forms they may have on hand.
Abbey Archery Shop at Nationals
Anyone looking for that ultra last-minute bit of archery gear will be pleased to know the Abbey Archery truck will be setting up shop from the Friday afternoon before Nationals. Early Christmas shopping? EFT facilities will be available or if you were lucky enough to win one of the gift vouchers off a raffle table you can use that. Bows, accessories, arrows, targets - you name it, it's going to be available over the weekend.
Members should be aware of & understand the right way to score before Nationals. Both score & check sheet need to be checked at each target before arrows are pulled, as per the Rules. Admin will require both score & check sheets when ranges are completed each day - both must be correctly tallied, with full names (not nicknames or just christian name), matching totals & signed before being handed in. Score sheets that aren't properly completed will be placed in a box with the problem highlighted. If your name is on the list with that box you can remove your score sheets, correct the problem & hand in to the admin team for inclusion. Any score sheets left in the box won't be entered to the scoring computer & will not count. Co-operation is much appreciated, especially with around 200 archers expected!
2014 Nationals Equipment Checking
The Committee would like to remind everyone to make sure that they know & understand the Rules of Shoot (some of which have been updated recently) & that their equipment is within legal. Bow & equipment checks will be done over the weekend. Checks will include but won't be limited to arrow weight & speed, stabiliser setup & length for AHC & that draw weights are within the specifications within the rules.
If in doubt or if you need clarification on anything contact a committee member to avoid disqualification. Committee contact details can be found here & Rules are here.
