APRIL 16 News Update

We continue to offer a safe environment for our retail customers and continue normal business hours.

We would appreciate our customers’ help in this matter.  If at all possible, please phone or e-mail to make an appointment for your supplies and services.  In this way, we can regulate the number of people in the shop as well as practice social distancing properly.

If there are too many customers in the shop, then we ask you to wait in your vehicle and we will wave to you for your turn to enter.

Many USA-based archery manufacturers have closed down operations including PSE.  Please be patient if you have special orders on-hold.  We will get the product to you as soon as we have it.

The lanes will be closed for general target practice at least until mid-May due to the recent government announcement.  Classes are postponed.  Kathy Millar will be in touch with all group lesson students from session #3 when she will be able to resume the last 2 weeks.  We have not decided the fate of Session #4.

Please use the hand-wipes at the front door when you enter.  Continue to practice social distancing.  Thank you and stay safe.

All 2020 Outdoor SNAC Sanctioned Tournaments Cancelled

Due to Archery’s Canada policy statement issued on April 9th, 2020, SNAC must cancel its planned summer tournaments:

“The Board has suspended the Federation’s recognition of tournaments in its calendar for the purposes of Canadian records, and Canadian Ranking lists until July 31. Currently registered events will be cancelled on the Archery Canada calendar and no further registrations will be approved until further notice and public health restrictions are lifted.”

Therefore, our nationally-sanctioned CDN900 set for June 24th is cancelled until further notice, as well as our annual 4 x 720 weekend of July 11-12,

We regret this decision, and will keep our members informed if and when we will be able to re-schedule these events.  Keep tuned for further updates.
