COMPETITION is sure to be fierce at the Emerald Archery Club field and 3D range this weekend, with more than 100 archers from across Queensland attending the club's first competition ever.

Top-ranked competitors from Gympie to Charters Towers are expected to compete.

Among them is Emerald's own Michael Eriksen, who finished 2014 as the number-one-ranked Freestyle junior, who will compete in the men's division against Geoff Voges, the current Australian Champion.

Field archery is a new sport to Emerald, and one of very few sports that the whole family can compete in at the same time.

The Emerald Archery Club prides itself on its family-friendly motto, and the whole club has been working very hard to prepare for its first competition.

The club welcomes spectators and eagerly awaits the chance to show how far it has come since gaining its grounds at the beginning of 2015.

Anyone interested in experiencing archery is welcome to visit the club's website www.emeraldarchery, or visit the Emerald Archery Club Facebook page.
