Hey folks, check this out from Nelson Archery Park...
Hello everyone
Join us for our  inaugural public archery tournament at Archery Park Nelson. We plan to have 2 * 3D courses setup. Saturday to be shot in our spectacular native forest and Sunday to be shot in the open.
It would be wonderful if you could share this with your archers and archery circles. 
and select the amount of archers (Senior and Youth), then the number of people camping and the number of people participating in the optional Saturday evening feast.

Current schedule (subject to change)

Saturday Day 1:

10am: Registration and bow inspection

10.30am: Welcome

11am: tournament start. 

This part takes place in our permanent 3D course in the native forest and requires a fair bit of walking with some steep sections, so be prepared with good shoes, snacks, drinks and a 1st aid kit. This is a 3 arrow round and will be scored in 3 zones. We plan to have 20 * 3D targets up.

Note: Please bring your own lunch and water as you will most likely be somewhere in the forest by the time you get hungry.

Saturday Feast (Optional)

The feast will be at the Adventure Park Cafe in form of a BBQ buffet. The Cafe is licensed and a wide selection of refreshments and beer on tab (not included in the feast fee).

Sunday Day 2:

10am: Welcome

10.30am: Tournament start. 

This is currently planned to be a mandatory 2 arrow round with 10pts for the kill zone and 5 points for the body - both arrows to be marked. The course starts at the campsite. Hopefully we have a few specials as part of it.

1pm: Price Giving

Note: Please bring your own lunch as we're not sure about organising this yet. We aim to have tea and coffee facilities available. Changes will be announced. 

Allowed archery equipment:

  • All bows but Compound bows
  • No crossbows
  • No broadheads or other hunting arrow points

Camping On-Site for $10 per person:

The Adventure Park has allowed us to offer camping on site. This is where we also setup the base for the tournament. There is no running water or showers, but we will rent portable toilets and have water available from canisters. Hopefully tea and coffee stations. We're looking into having a campfire, but no guarantee. You will be able to drive to and park at the camp site.

Late Entries:

Entries may be made on the day but late entries will be charged an extra $5 (adult $40 / junior $20).


Archery Park Nelson is on the Cable Bay Adventure Park land. Drive to 194 Cable Bay Nelson until you see the Adventure Park signs. Enter the car park and follow the signs to the Archery Tournament.
