Even better than yesterday, we had calm winds, over-cast skies and NO rain for day 2 of our annual 4 x 720 weekend.
Congratulations to all our participants including Shane Bryson, our webmaster, who shot his first-ever 70m round and did quite well. We had terrific scores again, with some new PBs and really good results for Josee Perron, Hannah Rousseau and Sandra Rampton-Siedule who are all just starting on their outdoor target careers.
There were good performances from everyone and once again, Alexandra Paquette led the way with a 698 on her morning round in the compound division.
Since we continue to have problems uploading our results through Archery Canada’s i@nseo site, here are the unofficial results for everyone to read.
Thank you to everyone who turned out and all the kind words for the efforts we make in order for this annual event to function. In particular, thank you to Cyrill and Patrick Jaquemet who slugged target butts again this year for our outdoor tournament season. See you next year!
On the morning line for our internationally-registered 4 x 720 weekend on Saturday, July 22nd, Alexandra Paquette tied the cadet compound women’s world record: 699! Even though this is unofficial currently, it is cause for great celebration. Well done, Alexandra!
Congratulations go out to a number of other archers who shot PBs that day: Hannah Rousseau, Sandra Rampton-Siedule and Mohamed El-Halawani.
SNAS will keep everyone posted as the status of this national and world record are confirmed.
Congratulations to the 10 archers who competed on July 12, 2017 at SNAC’s annual nationally-registered CDN 900 round. We had fabulous weather and dodged all the recent rain storms, with no wind.
Consequently, there were some great scores. Congratulations to Crystal Foster who shot 811 as top recurve archer and to Alexandra Paquette, top compound archer who shot an unofficial national record 887. This will be a new cadet AND junior record when approved, and tied the senior women’s compound record. She set a new cadet and junior record of 297 at 45m and holds onto her 35m record with 300(17x). We’ll have to wait to confirm all the records.

Next weekend, we will host our annual 4 x 720 event. Pre-registration is obligatory; all 4 rounds are booked completely. Stand-by only.
