CANCELLED TOURNAMENT on Sunday, February 14, 2021

Due to the provincial government’s decision to lock down eastern Ontario February 10th, we have decided to cancel this tournament until further notice.  The current COVID-19 environment is too unstable to plan for archers to have sufficient practice time in advance of the re-scheduled date.

We will advertise sanctioned indoor events with as much advanced notice as possible.  However, this may be only one week’s notice.

We thank all our competitive archers for their patience while we try to offer our regular programming under unusual circumstances.

2020 Candle-Master Quintin Fawcett

During our COVID-19 delayed Session #4, we held our annual candle event on October 28-29.  The archer must shoot out the flame without touching the arrow.  It takes quite a lot of skill and calmness.

This year’s Master is Cadet Compound archer Quintin Fawcett who shot THREE candles successfully.  Congratulations, Quintin!  You are the youngest archer to take out 3 in one class!

Then we had quite the family feud in our Thursday night 7pm classes:  all 3 parents shot out at least 1 candle flame (Connie Siedule shot out 2 of them), but none of the children in the families was able to do so.  Of course the parents did not rub in that fact …

We had a large number of people shoot their first candle flames ever.  So, with them plus repeat successful archers, big congratulations to:  Serenity Last (her dad failed to put one out), Georgia Stanley, Stella Fawcett, Oz Alves, Eden Baker, William Baker and Pam LeClair.

Our annual event is the distraction night activity built into advanced group lessons.  Other distraction night events include team rounds, shutting out sounds around you, and field archery.  For more information on advanced classes, please contact Kathleen Millar.

4 x 720 weekend event success despite COVID-19

We are happy to announce that South Nation Archery Club is one of the first clubs in Canada to host a world-sanctioned event in the COVID-19 era!  With all the extra paperwork and measures in place, we were able to run our annual 4 x 720 weekend event in August instead of our normal mid-July dates.

The results are listed below and are on the Archery Canada website.

Congratulations to all our competitors; there were some PBs:

Durvishan Thananchayan shot 2 +560 scores

Kaity Horlock shot 680 and Robin shot really well, too!

Larry E. Smith set a new national record for Master’s +60 Fixed Pins with a 641.

Final 2020 Mail Match Results

Greetings:

Since we have been forced to close our lanes to the general public effective March 25, we have submitted our mail match scores both to Archery Canada and Archery Ontario.

You will find those results below.  Two things to note:

1.  AC has decided that due to the COVID-19 epidemic forcing most clubs to close, they will take the TOP FOUR scores this year instead of 6 for the averages.  We have not been contacted by AO regarding any changes.

2.  AC has advised us that all indoor championship medals and indoor mail match medals will not be distributed until later in the spring/summer.  We will let everyone know when they have arrived.
