2022 Indoor 3D & Target Provincials

On Sunday May 1st, Archery Manitoba hosted it’s first 3D Indoor Championships since 2019 and Indoor Target Championships since 2020. After a challenging indoor season for archers and clubs alike, we were pleased to see the events resume late in the season. Archery Manitoba would like to thank all the archers, parents, and volunteers for their attendance and support in making it happen.

Congratulations to our medalists! It was fantastic to see some new faces out competing in categories across both competitions. Our medalists are listed below, and will be receiving their medals by mail in the coming week.

A big thank you to our hosts Karla, Pam, Corey and the Normac Volunteers for accommodating us in MacGregor at the Normac Centre.  The Normac Centre was a great facility to host both our target and 3D provincials over the span of a day, and we look forward to future events in the community of MacGregor. A very big thank you to our judges and technical volunteers, Tom Comberbach, Mike Oneschuk, and Chad Sanders. These individuals have put in an immense number of hours over the past several weeks, assisting with contingency planning.

Troy Richards Memorial Fundraiser Shoot a Success

On Saturday April 2nd Heartland Archery and staff hosted a Diabetes Fundraiser Shoot in memory of community volunteer and ‘Archery Dad’ Troy Richards. The event goal was to register 40 shooters to compete in a Lancaster flighted cash prize competition, and raise funds for Diabetes Canada. With the limited indoor season we had in 2022, and the fact that an NFAA cash prize event hadn’t been hosted in recent memory, the organizers weren’t sure what to expect. That uncertainty quickly changed as the event attracted interest, filling up and requiring a wait list.

On the morning of the event, the range was busy with a full group of archers filling the upper and lower range. Organizers were pleased to see a diverse group of archers new to competition, the ‘usual competition’ crowd, and some shooters that haven’t been out in a while.  Spectators joined to catch the excitement off elimination matches, and purchase 50/50 and silent auction prizes provided by sponsors. Heartland Archery and Archery Manitoba would like to thank sponsors Black Eagle Arrows, Brava Creations, G5, Skre, Black Bear Remedies, FireWire Custom Bow Strings, Bowtech, LOTW Sports Headquarters, Bulldog Targets, and Matthews for their support of the event. In addition to sponsorship, Archery Manitoba was proud to partner with Heartland to provide judging support from Michael Oneschuk and Travis Boucher. Thank you to those judges for taking the time to support the event.

The event ended on a high note, with a group of 15 shooters taking home cash prizes, including $500 to first place in the top two flights. In addition to the competition being a success, the fundraiser brought in almost $2000 for Diabetes Canada. Thank you to all the archers, volunteers, and spectators for your support of this fantastic event. A full listing of the flight winners is as follows:

The winners of the flights are as follows:
