2016 SPONSORSHIPS AND INCENTIVES
The 3DAAA committee is pleased to announce some exciting new sponsorship & incentive programs.
Abbey Archery have also confirmed their continued support of our young archers with the promise of two bows - one lucky cub & one lucky youth will again win a new bow, to be presented at the 2016 National Championship Presentation. Every time our cub & youth members shoot, their name is added to the draw. Shooting Nationals will give them two entries with the draw being conducted by random number generator.
3DAAA will once again be having an incentive award for our kids. This year the prizes will be a $40 gift voucher that can be redeemed at any of our Australian shop sponsors and a 3DAAA cap. At each sanctioned event a cub & youth will be drawn at random. To be completely fair, this can only be won once by a cub or youth in the shooting year.
Once again 3DAAA has set up a sponsorship package from archery dealers and some overseas archery manufactures to have their logos on the score sheet for 2016. This year we developed a 4 level system, Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze, due to the monetary value contributed by the sponsor. Part of this sponsorship will help with providing the end of year trophies and pull up banners which will be at all sanctioned shoots. So please help support these sponsors who support 3DAAA.
This year we have a new sponsor who will be sponsoring the Hunter class at the Australian Championships. Darryl Bulger from Native Hunting Gear will be supplying 2 dozen Native Hunting arrows, 2 packets of Native TKO2 broadheads and will create a perpetual trophy. Darryl created the current Highest score trophy at the National Championships many years ago which is a great trophy, so rest assured this trophy for Hunter class will be just as good.
Not to be left out, clubs will also have two opportunities to win their club a target. The 1st target up for grabs will be a medium sized target. To be able to win this target a club must get 5 or more shooters at a sanctioned shoot and they will get 1 ticket in the end of year draw. The more times your club gets 5 or more shooters at a sanctioned shoot the more chances your club has of winning this target.
The 2nd target up for grabs is a large walking bear target. To be able to win this target a club will get 1 point for every 5 shooters at a sanctioned shoot. So the more shooters representing your club the more points your club gets. An example is if your club has 19 shooters at a sanctioned shoot your club will receive 3 points, if there are 21 shooter, the club will receive 4 points. The club with the most points will win this target.
Clubs need to ensure that their members write down their club name on the score recording sheet, if a member of more than one club, the archer needs to list the club of their choice.
The 2016 Nationals will not count towards these awards.
Both of these targets will be awarded at the 2016 end of year presentation.
