Manawatu Archery Club hosted the National Indoor Championships for the first time as a single venue event in September 2012. In 2011, it was held simultaneously in Palmerston North and Dunedin.  This is the view in the B & M Ballroom before the first end was shot.

We had 159 archers attend, with 26 archers not being able to make it. The last time the MAC hosted this event (2014) we had 148 archers attend.

It was also the first time we had a raffle at the event. Thank you to Marion Hawley for organising the raffle, we have been told it was a great success and archers are looking forward to seeing one again next year :)
Thank you to everyone that has helped out in getting this event ready on the Friday, packing down on the Sunday and all the bits in between. Without the help it would be very hard to host this event. Roll on National Indoors 2017.
