A chilly Saturday morning, greeted 118 archers on the WBPHS rugby field for the first NASP competition to be held at the coast.

Each archer shot a bullseye round and a 2D round in lovely sunshine. Archers receive a lovely goodie bag with all kinds of little treats to keep them energised for the team eliminations after lunch. Living up to its reputation, the wind came and made shooting a little more challenging. 

Prize giving followed and archers from the competing schools were rewarded for their hard work over the last few months.

The organisers would love to thank the sponsors for their support to make a day like this such a success.

'n Koue Saterdagoggend het 118 boogskutters begroet op die WBPHS rugbyveld vir die eerste NASP kompetisie wat gehou was teen die kus hierdie jaar.

Elke boogskutter het 'n Bullseye ronte en 'n 2D ronte geskiet in lieflike sonskyn weer. Elke boogskut het 'n pragtige sakkie met allerhande klein lekkernye gekry om hulle energie te gee vir die span uitdunne na middagete. Die wind het sy reputasie gestand gedoen en het die skietery bietjie meer uitdagend gemaak toe dit begin waai het.

Prysuitdeling het gevolg en boogskutters uit die kompeterende skole was beloon vir hul harde werk wat hul gelewer het oor die afgelope paar maande.

Die organiseerders wil graag die borge bedank vir hul ondersteuning om 'n dag soos hierdie so 'n sukses te maak.
