Our annual 6-week outdoor league night #1 took place on June 7th in brilliant sunshine, warm and light breezes and few mosquitoes. It was a great performance night as well. There were several personal bests to start the season. In particular, it was great to see Alexandra Paquette shoot 11 points from perfect.
Join us for the next 5 weeks at 55m, 45m and 35m – 90 arrows, just the right number after work or school.
Remember that week 6, Wednesday, July 12, is a nationally-registered tournament and you will need to pre-register for that.
We look forward to seeing even more participants in the weeks to come.

Brandon led the way this year with 5 candle flames without touching the candle itself. Great job this year, Brandon! Honourable mention goes to Cole Myers, Pam Bennett, Max Binkle, Connie Siedule, Ryan Luckovitch, Nolan Eakins and Bill Mackey.
Revenge of the candle flames will have to wait until 2018!
Kathleen Millar was asked to return to Archery Canada’s coach certification programme on April 02, 2017 to train NCCP coach evaluators from across the country for the Competition-Development context.
She was involved with the pilot of this programme in January 2014. This training session was part of a larger 4-day event hosted in Hamilton by the Coaches Association of Ontario. Many sports were in attendance, with the archery delegation being one of the largest. Archery representatives attended from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Manitoba and British Columbia.
A coach evaluator is an important part of assessing coach competency after appropriate training. The evaluator’s role is to ensure that the coach is competent, but also to suggest future learning opportunities and areas to strengthen. If the coach is found to be competent, then certification is granted.
Kathleen has been involved in the national coach certification programme since 1976.
Congratulations to the individuals and team members who competed in our marathon day-and-a-half annual MICA tournament. Though it is not required, SNAC registers this event internationally with World Archery for performance awards and records. The event runs from January 01 to May 31 each year with participation from all the Americas from Argentina to Canada.
We are pleased to publish the SNAC-only site results. WEB_2017Canada_MICA_Results_For_SNAS#12_2017-03-26
Final Canadian results will appear on the Archery Canada website sometime in early May. For full results, consult the COPARCO website after that date.
We are fortunate to have a dedicated national co-ordinator for this event: Lynne Durward. Thank you, Lynne, for organising the event and the results!
Congratulations to all those competitors who took part in our final indoor tournament of the season: The Multi-site Indoor Championships of the Americas (MICA). We had the biggest turn-out ever with 4 separate starting times, all filled to capacity plus 3 team events for CPD Senior Men (with 2 cadets on the team), CPD Junior Women (with 2 cadets on the team) and REC Senior Women (the same team members as last year).
Those results will be posted shortly.
In the meantime, it is time to celebrate all the accomplishments, tests, trials-and-tribulations and victories of all those who put themselves up to the test of shooting some or all of our internationally-registered tournaments throughout the winter. Well done, everybody!!
Indoor mailmatches are coming to a close at the end of March. So if you have not shot 6 scores for your average, you’d better get a move on! 🙂
Indoor house leagues will finish on April 15th. Again, you need 6 scores for an average.
Outdoor CDN900 leagues will be held in June-July and we hope you will be able to join us on Wednesday evenings.
Our annual 4 x 720 weekend will be held on July 22-23 and you may sign up for 1, 2, 3 or all 4 rounds by contacting Larry or Kathy.
So the indoor season is winding down and now we need to wait for the outdoor lanes to dry out and we’ll be able to move outside in May-June. We hope to see you then!
