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.
The Silver Arrow tournaments are regarded as the Annual SQAS Inter Club Teams Championships in all of the four events.
You can find more information at the SQAS Silver Arrow page and the 2023 guidelines document.
How do I participate?
Unfortunately, our club doesn't currently host any of the events, so you will have to travel to another SQAS club to participate.
You sign up & attend as you would for any SQAS event. There is a nominal fee (see the SQAS Guidelines). Remember to take your AA card with you!
