South Nation Archery on CTV Morning – 2014
Sarah Freemark makes a return visit to South Nation Archery Supply/Club to learn that you don’t need your eyes open in order to make a good shot and that you need to execute the shot properly in order to be accurate with a release aid.
Enjoy watching all 4 segments with Kathy and Larry. This show aired on March 31, 2014.

Parker Brothers and 2014 Indoor Championships Results
We’re heading into the final week for national indoor championship sites to confirm that results from March 1-2, 2014 are correct. So, South Nation is going to start celebrating early! Josh Parker and Kaleb Parker finished 1-2 in Male Cub Recurve! This marks the first time that brothers from SNAC win top medals at a national event. As well, they both shot very well – so, great job guys!
Archery Canada will be mailing the medals directly to these archers and we will celebrate their accomplishments in advanced classes on May 28-29.
The national indoor archery championships are held annually, on the first full weekend in March, in 20-25 registered sites across the country. Over 700 archers participate annually. For more details on this event in terms of Long-Term Athlete Development, contact Kathy Millar or Larry Smith. For SNAC-only results, please use this website; for all-competitor results, please use: www.fca.ca.
Miranda Paquette and good eating habits
Congratulations once again to Miranda Paquette (female Cub recurve) who remains our advanced youth classes winner in the Nutrition Awareness Week challenge. By combining a healthy, balanced diet with bonus points for avoiding empty calories and junk food, Miranda scored an almost perfect 723 points! She’s tough to beat, ladies and gentlemen; this makes 3 years in a row! Well done, Miranda!
The emphasis in this activity is to underscore the importance of “fueling the body” so that we can perform as archers, but more importantly, so that we recognise our choices to maintain a healthy life-style.
Our annual “good eating habits” challenge is only one of several activities for advanced youth and adult classes. For more details, please review lesson plans for our “Events” or contact Kathy Millar for details.

This pre-taped session will air on CTV Ottawa’s Morning Show on March 31st. It should be fun!
