Despite the challenges presented in 2021, our archery community was provided the opportunity to continue with limited indoor and outdoor activity. During which time, there were notable performances, and contributions at our local club shoots and activities. Archery Manitoba has decided again in 2021 to not host our Annual Awards Banquet, and instead will provide online recognition to athletes, volunteers and coaches. Archery Manitoba will be awarding a full slate of awards in 2021, as listed below.
We ask that our members and partner clubs help us recognize deserving athletes, coaches and volunteers by online nomination by December 15, 2021. Awards will be presented online during the week of December 20 – 23.

Club Report Form
Archery Manitoba congratulates provincial team member Austin Taylor for winning the 2021 U.S. Collegiate 3D Archery National Championship Oct. 16 in Foley, Ala.
Taylor, shooting for the Lindsey Wilson College Blue Raiders, seeded first in qualifications with a score of 462, then maintained his lead through the elimination round, for a total of 494 points to second-place Union College shooter Lane Brandt, who had 488 points.
Taylor’s score of 462 — or 62-up in 3D archery parlance — sets a Lindsey Wilson College school record. He competes in the Known-45 category using a PSE Citation compound bow. His category drew 57 archers from multiple schools across the U.S.
It was a strong start to the 2021-2022 season for the reigning No. 1-ranked U.S. Collegiate All-American, who now turns his attention to preparations for the 2022 U.S. Collegiate Indoor Championship, starting in January in various U.S. locations and ending in March with an invitation-only shootoff for the top-ranked archers. Taylor won the indoor title last year.
Archery Manitoba is saddened to hear of the sudden death of Timothy Jones of Selkirk, Manitoba. Tim was an avid advocate for the sport of archery. His passion was vividly displayed in his role as coach and manager of his daughter Doris Baker (Jones) who he mentored from the age of four to become a Junior World Champion and Commonwealth Games medalist. Being very proud of his Metis heritage, Tim always wore his sash and ensured his daughter did as well. Tim had time to talk with anyone about the sport, was very well liked, and was truly a genuine and colourful personality in the Manitoba archery community. Archery Manitoba sends its deepest condolences to Doris and the rest of the family.

The 2021 Manitoba 3D Open Championships wrapped up this past weekend after a full two days of 3D action. Thank you to all the archers and parents that made the trip to compete over the weekend, which provided all kinds of conditions. From extreme winds on Saturday morning to rain showers on Sunday afternoon, organizers were pleased to see lots of happy archers work their way through the course.
Archery Manitoba would like to extend big thank you to the Flatlanders Archery Club
volunteers, specifically Chad Sanders, James Platt, Leonard Budgell, and Dave Tissot for creating three great courses. Thank you to our provincial judges Tom Comberbach, Travis Boucher and Mike Oneschuk for assisting with the course design, setup and officiating of the events. Thanks to Flatlanders members Sherry and Chyler Sanders for putting on a BBQ lunch Sunday, we were happy to see all the food sold! And finally thank you to Archery Manitoba Committee members Bob Tataryn, April Willis and Dan Hudson on site assisting with course setup and registration.
Thank you to our sponsors and prize donations, specifically Travis Van Daele and Derek Robins from Jo Brook Outdoors, Joel Brugger from FireWire Strings, and Dan Hudson for handmaking and donating a a custom PVC recurve bow!
Despite a late season start and decreased events due to Covid, there were many positives to highlight this season. Archery Manitoba is pleased to see a consistent and growing group of shooters and clubs excited to participate in, and 3D host events. We are looking forward to the indoor season, and the opportunity to support our partner clubs in hosting quality events for Manitoba archers.
Due to the weather, we were forced to take our prize raffle, results posting and medal ceremonies to online & mailout. Below are the prize winners and final results for the event. If you are listed as a prize winner, please contact the office to organize pick up (if in Winnipeg) or delivery. Certificates and Medals will be mailed out to archers in the top 3 of their respective category later this week.
