Flatlanders @Home Challenge

Archery Manitoba is proud to promote The Flatlanders Archery Club 2021 @Home Challenge. Partner club, the Flatlanders Archery Club is hosting a fantastic at home event for Manitoba archers to participate in over the next month and half. We would like to thank club Secretary James Platt for his effort in making this event a possibility. For more information on the event, see the official summary below:

Welcome to the Flatlanders Archery Club 2021 @Home Challenge. The purpose of the challenge
is to have fun and get ready for the spring. The Challenge requires you to shoot two target faces per
week for six weeks. The target faces have been sized to challenge you at ~5m. However, as an
unsanctioned event, you can shoot at whatever distance you feel comfortable and is deemed safe.

Target faces have been sized to be printed on 8 ½ x 11 pages. (standard printer paper)

The first target you shoot will be a ‘Mini 3-Spot’ (You will need to print six of these targets; one for
each of the six weeks). Because these targets are tiny, and your arrows are regular size, these
targets may be in tatters by the 8th end. Therefore, you will score only five ends using these targets;
so… 15 arrows. Don’t forget to count your X’s (inner 10 ring) in case of a tie.

Next you will shoot the Flatlanders Challenge Target for the given week. Instructions are provided in the table shown below (also linked in the files below) , as well as on the targets themselves.

Once you have scored both the Mini 3-Spot and the Challenge Target, send me your results (send to
jamesplatt@mts.net). The top the scores from the Mini 3-Spot and challenge target face will be
entered into a small (but respectable) prize draw at the end of the six-week challenge. Only the top
the scores for both the 3Spot and the Challenge Target will be posted (likely on Facebook).

But wait, there’s more! An additional prize will be awarded to the person who can generate the
most Instagram and Facebook likes for a single post related to the 2021 Flatlanders @Home
Challenge tagged with #Flatlanders_archery and #HeightsOutdoors. If you are interested in taking
part in this portion of the challenge, please send me your Instagram and/or Facebook profile name
(send to jamesplatt@mts.net).

You will note that the first week of the Challenge runs for 14 days. This is not an error. More time
has been allocated for the first week to ensure that everyone gets their @Home Challenge Package
before the end of the first week.

Challenge Target Files available here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1KxxN87UZeqz9Hx_lex6B8B1ZEQ8la2fA?usp=sharing

Feel free to e-mail James Platt, Secretary of Flatlanders Archery Club with any questions.

I have competed in many international tournaments and my best finish was second place at the 2019 World Youth Archery Championships in Madrid, Spain. My most memorable experience in archery was winning a shoot off for second place in the adult championship category in Vegas. A goal I have for archery is to start to shoot more ASA tournaments in the USA.

My highest level of competition are Indoor Target Provincials 2020, where I won gold, Indoor Regionals (2020), where I won silver and Outdoor Target Provincials (2020), where I won gold. One of my most memorable moments in archery is when I found out I made Team Manitoba as it was my goal for 2020. A goal for 2021 is to improve my form and beat my personal best score. A long-term goal is to make Team Canada. I would like to go to the World Archery Youth Championships in Limerick, Ireland in 2023. What I love best about archery is that I love to shoot!

One of my most memorable moments in archery was in 2016 when I received the Athlete of the Year from Archery Manitoba. One of my goals for 2021 is to shoot a 300 30x score. A long-term goal is to place in the top three at an international competition. I would like to participate in the World Senior Championships and the World Collegiate Target Championships one day. What I like best about archery is the feeling of a perfect shot.

Brady Holm

I started archery five years ago and have done competition for two and a half years. My highest level of competition was the Outdoor National Championships (2019) in Prince Albert, SK, and also the ISAA Pro-Am Archery Tournament (2019) in Des Moines, Iowa. My most memorable moment in archery was going to the ISAA Pro-Am Archery tournament in 2019. One goal I have for 2021 is to be able to shoot by the end of the indoor season. A long-term goal is to keep shooting with the Manitoba Provincial Archery Team. Someday I would like to go to the Vegas shoot. What I like most about archery is the friendly competition.

Chris Waterman
Para Compound Male Open
I have shot archery from the age of seven until about the age of 16 (1993) when I stopped. In Oct. 2019 I started shooting again. I shot outdoor 3D competitions for ten years as a kid. I started competing again in Jan 2020. My highest level of competition are 2020 Indoor Regionals, where I won a bronze medal, and 2020 Outdoor Target Provincials, where I won a silver medal. My most memorable moment in archery would be my first “Robinhood”. My main goal for 2021 is to improve my scores so that I can go from development squad to elite squad on the Provincial Team. My long-term goals are to continue with Team Manitoba, make Team Canada, and to travel representing my province and country at multiple competitions. What I like best about archery is that for me it is a way to relax and find my center so to speak. You have to have full focus along with full relaxation. It takes a balance of those two states of mind to hit your mark.
Profile
Chyler Sanders
Compound Cadet Women
I have been shooting since 2014 and I started competitions in 2018. The highest level of competition that I participated in was when I was part of Team Canada in 2019. I participated in the 2019 World Archery Youth Championships in Madrid, Spain. I finished 17th in the individual event. One of my most memorable moments in archery was when I qualified to compete at the World Archery Youth Championships. One goal for 2021 would to be to qualify to compete at the World Youth Archery Championships in Perth, Australia this year (2021). A couple of long-term goals of mine are to shoot a 300 on a Vegas target so I can get on the wall at Heights Archery, and to qualify for a scholarship to go to a university or college that has an archery program. What I like best about archery is the people I get to meet when I go to the various events and getting to shoot with my teammates.

Cleo Wermann-Thorn
Cadet Recurve Women
I have been shooting for eight years and competing for six. My highest level of competition was the 2019 Canada Winter Games. Going to the Games was also my most memorable moment in archery. One goal for 2021 is to train as much as possible so that I can be at my best once we start competing again. A long-term goal of mine is to make Team Canada. I’d like ro go as far as I can with archery, where ever it may take me. The best part about archery is shooting with my friends.
Profile
Emily Love
Cadet Recurve Women
I have been shooting and competing for four years. My highest level of competition was Outdoor Canadian National Championships in 2019 and Indoor Provincials Championships. My most memorable moment was when I was at the Manitoba Winter Games in Thompson (2018). I won the bronze medal shooting against someone who had been shooting competitively for years. I had only been shooting competitively for 3 months at that time. One of my goals for 2021 is to start to shoot more consistently. A long-term goal is to try out for the National Team. What I like best about archery is the adrenaline rush, especially during match play.
Profile
Emma Esau
Compound Junior Women
I have been doing archery for seven years and have competed for five. The highest level of competition I’ve been to was the Outdoor Canadian Target Championships (2019). My most memorable archery event was the 2018 Manitoba Winter Games. It was my first big tournament. That’s when I really started to get into archery and commit to the sport. I am looking forward to getting back into the range after our current restrictions and shooting with my teammates. My goal is to continue to work on my archery skills and see where it takes me from there. One of my favourite things about doing archery is the community that comes with it. Everyone is friendly and encouraging, even when competing against each other.
Profile
Ethan Hall
Compound Cub Men
I have been shooting since the beginning of 2020 and started competition in March. My highest level of competitions are Outdoor 3D Provincials in 2020, where I won silver and Outdoor Target Provincials 2020, where I won gold. Winning gold was also my most memorable moment in archery to date. My goal for 2021 is to work hard while shooting with the Provincial Team. A long-term goal is to win the Vegas competition one day. Someday I would like to go to Las Vegas for their competition and to shot at a World Championship. What I like best about archery is the competition, meeting new people and making friends.
Profile
Janna Hawash
Cadet Recurve Women
I have been shooting for 10 year and competing for 8 of those. The highest level of competition I have participated in was Nationals in 2019 where I placed 3rd. My most memorable moment in archery was the first time I shot an arrow. My goal for the 2021 season is to strengthen my game in match play. One of my long-term goals is to be able to block out everyone around me in competitions and zone myself in with the target. The thing I love best about archery is that it is a one-person sport; it’s just you and the target. Someday I would like to make it to the Olympics.
Profile
Josten North

My most memorable moment are going on my own with the coach and 3D team to Alberta, and seeing all new people and sites for 3D archery as I go to as many as possible, and this was my first season to try the target archery. One of my goals for 2021 is just have fun. A long-term goal is to be on TV or in the Olympics. What I like best about archery is that everyone is so helpful. It is a great way to meet new friends.

I have been shooting for four years and competing for three. My highest level of competition indoor was the Vegas shoot, most recently in 2019, and my highest outdoor competition would be the Outdoor Canadian Target Championships. One of my most memorable moments in archery would be when I broke the Canadian record in the cub category and then within less than a week I broke the record I had just set! One of my goals for 2021 is to try and go to more events, as well as try new things around my sport. A long-term goal is to make Team Canada and go to world events. What I like most about archery is the consistent challenge that it has. There is never an end to the perfection and how much time and effort you need to bring in order to stay at a high level. Someday I would love to make Team Canada and represent my country at the World Youth Championships.
Profile
Rob Cox
Para Compound Open Men
I started doing archery 18 years ago. I have competed for ten of those years. My highest level of competition was the Paralympics level where I was the alternate for both the 2008 and 2012 Paralympics. My most memorable moment in archery was when I made the team that was going to Korea. In 2007 they were naming the teams for that year’s world archery events and then they said my name for the Para Worlds. All I could do was cry. It was my first year shooting outdoors and to make it to that level, I was overwhelmed. One goal I have for 2021 is to make it to the Paralympics in Tokyo. A long-term goal of mine is that I will still have the upper body strength to make the 2024 Paralympics in Paris, France. Someday I would like to coach an archer to be able to go to the Olympics. What I like about archery is meeting other people and being able to learn from them. It does not matter if you are a beginner or experienced archery, everyone has something that they can learn from each other. Just remember when you put that uniform on you are representing not only your team but your province and country.

Ryan Cherniak
Compound Junior Men
I have been shooting and involved in competition for five years. My highest levels of competition have been Indoor Regionals, Outdoor Canadian Target Championship and the Las Vegas shoot. My most memorable moment in archery was winning money in the Las Vegas shoot. Several things of interest about me: I was the first in the youth compound division to win the Manitoba Open, and I was also the first to win it twice! And in 2017, I was the first winner of the youth compound division in the Canadian Outdoor Open, which was held in Quebec. One goal for 2021 is to beat my personal best outdoors (965/720). A long-term goal is to shoot a perfect score indoors. Someday I would like to participate in more international events. The thing I like best about archery is how calming it is when you’re shooting.

What I like most about archery is getting together outdoors with friends to shoot, and also the challenge of archery.

A goal of mine for 2021 is to go to Outdoor Canadian Nationals and a long-term goal is to go to the Canada Winter Games. What I love most about archery is that it is an individual sport.

I have been shooting for eight years and participating in competition for six or seven of those years. The highest level of competitions I have participated in were: Canadian Nationals, where I placed 4th, Manitoba Winter Games in 2018, where I won silver medals, the Iowa ISAA Pro Am in 2019, and the 2020 Manitoba Indoor and Outdoor Provincials where I won gold for both. One of my most memorable moments in archery was taking place in the Manitoba Winter Games in 2018 and winning silver in both the team shoot with Chyler Sanders and the individual men’s compound category. It has also been memorable to attend bigger events with team like Nationals and Iowa tournaments. One goal I have for 2021 is to hopefully attend Outdoor National Championships in PEI and make the podium. What I like best about archery is that it is a fun sport. It is great being part of Team Manitoba and the friendships I have made as well as having the opportunity to travel and compete. Archery is a great mental sport. It’s a great opportunity to meet new friends. I have learnt how to work through mental challenges and stress to help improve my mental toughness and discipline in challenging situations.

Taylor Klimchuk
Compound Cadet Women
I have been shooting for four years and competing for three. In 2018 I shot in the Manitoba Winter Games. My highest level of competition was in 2019 when I shot the Vegas Shoot and placed 46th out of 102. I shot it again the next year and placed 72nd out of 116. I struggled with nerves on the second day of competition in 2019 after a really strong first day. In 2020 I felt I wasn’t shooting my strongest but I had lots of fun. One of my most memorable moments in archery was when I won bronze in the individual event at the 2018 Manitoba Winter Games. That was pretty much the first time I had tasted what it was like to compete. My teammates and I had won bronze the day before in the team event but doing it by myself felt different. When the judge pointed at my target and said that I had won I burst into tears. I was so unbelievably happy and proud of my self. I ran over and gave my mom a big hug and ever since I can’t keep the bow out of my hand. One of my 2021 goals is to make the National Youth Team to go to the World Archery Youth Championships in Australia. A long-term goal is to shoot a personal best at an international competition. Someday I would like to go to World Archery Youth Championships. What I love best about archery is when you look through your sight and see a fresh target face.

One of my most memorable moments in archery were taking part in Nationals and winning silver in 2019, when I made the Manitoba Provincial Team while shooting up a level, and travelling. My goals for 2021 are to shoot a perfect 300 and to continue competing. A long-term goal is to continue to medal in future competitions. Someday I would like to go to a larger competition such as Canada Games or World Youth Championships. What I like best about archery is being part of Team Manitoba and travelling. The fun times I have with my teammates.

2020 Annual Award Nominations

Despite the many challenges faced in 2020, our archery community was provided the opportunity to have a limited indoor and outdoor season this past year.  During this time, there were notable performances in the Canadian Indoor Regional Championship, great local events, and well attended learn to shoot and development programs. This year Archery Manitoba has been forced to cancel our Annual Awards Banquet, and will provide online recognition to athletes, volunteers and coaches. Archery Manitoba will be awarding the Rising Star (Male & Female), Coach of the Year, and Volunteer of the Year Awards. In light of the limitation to compete in major out of province competitions in 2020, the 3D & Target Archer of the Year Awards will not be presented.

We ask that our members and partner clubs help us recognize deserving athletes, coaches and volunteers by online nomination by December 16, 2020.
