Silver Arrow Tournaments had their origin in the early 1950’s – Target only – with an annual event between two clubs – Wynnum and Grange – for a special Arrow Trophy – handmade by Mr Rhys Williams (same trophy as the one still being contested today for the Silver Arrow Target event – Recurve Teams).
Now-a-days it has Target, Field, Clout, & Indoor event components.
To give the competitive archer the benefit of extended inter-club events.
To give the casual shooter the opportunity to mix and compete with shooters of other clubs in all events – thus providing inter-club social contact.
To encourage all shooters to improve their scores by:
trying to achieve the best score in their divisions;
trying to improve their own scores from one tournament to the next;
trying to become a member of their club’s team in as many events as possible and ultimately to be a team member should the club win the Premiership for the year;
To enable the better shooters to have an opportunity of establishing South Queensland Tournament records in all events and all shooters to gain qualifying scores for classification, if applicable.
