Great Opportunity for Youth at SNAC – OSG qualification weekend

2016/06/19

Thank you to all those parents and club members who came out to shoot this weekend along side our youth trying to qualify for their zone team for Ontario Summer Games.  We had a good turn-out from across eastern and northeastern Ontario and western Quebec, even though it was Father’s Day weekend!

Good luck to all the archers who had their scores submitted to the OAA:  Ryan Luckovitch, Josh Sequillion, Daniel Thomas, Sandra Rampton-Siedule, Hannah Rousseau and Nolan Eakins.

The Ontario Summer Games is a multi-games event held every two years in cities around the province.  This year, the Games will be held in Mississauga, right after the National Target Championships in Peterborough, August 11-14.  Qualification scores must be submitted by Sunday, June 26th.

2016/05/20

It has come to our attention that few clubs in the eastern zone are hosting 720 rounds in time for scores to be submitted for this year’s Ontario Summer Games.

We will help fill this void by offering Saturday tournaments (more details and dates to follow).

For OSG, compound shoots 72 arrows at 50m on an 80cm target face, and recurve archers shoot 72 arrows at 60m on a 122cm target face.

If you are interested, please contact Kathy Millar at info@southnationarchery.com.

Saying “good-bye” to graduating students Victoria & Emily

2016/05/20

2016 marks the final year of OFSSA archery championships for Victoria Borgia (NDDHS) and Emily Hockey (St. Michael’s).  Both women broke 500 on their last event and go out with great shooting and experiences.  They are both continuing with their education and we hope that they will come back to archery again in the future.

Victoria and Emily have spent many years at SNAC and we will miss both of them!  We have watched them grow into confident young women.  Good luck, ladies!

OFSSA Archery Tournament 2016 Results

2016/05/20

Congratulations to the 400 high school students who participated at this year’s indoor archery tournament in Richmond Hill, ON on May 18 and 19.  In particular, we are pleased to congratulate archers who train at SNAC, representing 10 schools across eastern Ontario.  We had a number of new archers with the group this year and we are hoping that most of them will return for next year’s OFSSA event.

Thank you to our volunteer drivers who helped Kathy Millar this time:  Ray Bougie, Patrick Laforest, Patrick Jaquemet and Connie Siedule.

On Day 1, standard equipment, compound limited and compound unlimited archers competed, and SNAC was well represented in the unlimited division.  Congratulations to Kaity Horlock (Archbishop Denis) who won gold in women, and who had the top score for the tournament, 596 (4 points off perfect).

For the men, Ryan Luckovitch (Madawaska Valley) won silver with 579, and Max Binkle (Thousand Islands SS) shot PBs all day to finish 14th.  3 archers represented North Dundas District High School – Rhyce Sheerer 27th, Sebastian Rutherford 43rd, and Logan Billings 56th and we are hopeful that we will see them again in 2017.

On Day 2, it was Recurve Archery and SNAC archers did well again.  For the women, Sandra Siedule-Rampton (NGDHS) led the way finishing 17th, Victoria Borgia (NDDHS) 19th, Emily Hockey (St. Michael’s) 20th, Miranda Paquette (Osgoode) 23rd, Allie Broadhurst (St. Mark’s) 24th, Payton Halpenny (NDDHS) 31st, Justine Miller (TISS) 70th.  This was the largest division in the tournament.

For the men, Cyrill Jaquemet (NDDHS) just missed the medals in 8th, Josh Sequillion (Leahurst) 21st, and Mason Laforest (ESCE) 93rd.

Great job, everyone!
