The 3DAAA committee is pleased to announce some exciting new sponsorship & incentive programs.

*We are honoured to once again have Hoyt as a Platinum sponsor with the offer of a new 2018 Hoyt bow to an adult shooting member.   All adults will receive one entry for every sanctioned shoot they attend & shoot, with two entries at Nationals. The winner will be drawn   at the annual Presentation following Nationals & will be able to choose their bow from the 2018 Hoyt bow line-up.
 At the 2017 Australian Championships adult members will be able to buy one (1) extra ticket per person in the draw for this Hoyt bow     for $5. 

*3DAAA will be having an incentive award for our kids again for 2017. 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. The winners must be present at the time of  presentations to receive the prize.

*3DAAA has once again set up a sponsorship package from archery dealers and some overseas archery manufactures to have their     logos on the score sheet for 2017. There will be 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.

*Darryl Bulger from Native Hunting Gear will again sponsor the Highest score shot at the 2017 Australian Championships in Hunter Class.  

*Not to be left out, clubs will also have an opportunity to win their club a target.  The target up for grabs will be a medium sized 3D  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.

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 2017 Nationals will not count towards this award.

The target will be awarded at the 2017 end of year presentation.
