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.
IBO Worlds 2015 - 1/3/15
New Survey - 25/02/15
The Committee is reviewing the way reminders of membership renewal are sent & would appreciate member input into the issue. It's a simple matter of just clicking on the option you feel is the most suitable for you as a member. Please click here to assist in determining whether we need to make changes to the system. This survey will be available until midnight on March 29th, 2015.
Membership Processing Delays - 20/02/15
The Membership Secretary is advising that due to a high volume of renewals & new memberships during the last week, there will be a short delay in processing. Cards will be processed & posted as quickly as possible but we do ask for patience in the meantime. Those who paid online should use their receipt as proof of payment while those who paid through their club should request a receipt as proof of payment until their card arrives. Postal applications are also being processed as quickly as possible. Please note these should not be sent to the Casino post office box which shows on old application forms, but to the Bellingen address on the downloadable form on the website.
Committee Update - 08/02/15
It is with regret that we announce that Gerard Miles recently decided to step down as president of 3DAAA. This decision was one not made lightly but in consideration of how his continued involvement would affect both his work & personal life as well as whether he felt he could give his best to the Association. Unfortunately, he decided that it would be best for him to concentrate on his work & family commitments. We wish him all the best for his upcoming marriage & future, both personally & in archery. Meanwhile, Jock Thompson has stepped up into the role until the AGM when the position will be up for election.
Calendar Update - 05/02/15
Calendar has been updated to include Hawkesury & a change to Manly from 2 day sanctioned event to a one day special event.
Website Updates - 29/12/14
Rules of Shoot have been updated to clarify wording regarding Section 3 Equipment. New version 1.2 available for download on Rules page.

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 is now available (21/11/14)

Policy updates (29/6/14)
A new Course Setters Policy has been released. This document formalises practices followed in the past.
The Visitor and Association Cross Participation Policy has also been amended to include past members.
3DAAA committee is pleased to announce some exciting new sponsorship & incentive programs.
Abbey Archery have 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 2015 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.
We are also proud to announce that Hoyt has joined our sponsors with the offer of a new 2016 Hoyt bow of choice 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 2016 line-up.
3DAAA have negotiated a deal with Benson Archery Supplies to supply us with 18-1 targets for our kids. There will be 2 brand new 18-1 targets at each sanctioned event a cub & youth will be drawn at random at each event to give them a new home. To be completely fair, this can only be won once by a cub or youth in the shooting year.
Not to be left out, clubs will also have the opportunity to win their club a standing bear target. At each sanctioned shoot club members should write down the name of their club or, if a member of more than one club, their club of choice. At the annual presentation the club with the highest attendance at sanctioned shoots will win the target, which will be at the venue ready to be transported to its new home.
