COVID19: Return to Sport Protocol

Updated June 25, 2021
On Wednesday June 23 the provincial government announced the loosening of COVID-19 public health restrictions beginning at 12:01 AM Saturday June 26. Working with our partners in Sport Manitoba and the Provincial Government we have updated the Archery Manitoba “Return to Play” Protocol.
The health and safety of all participants in sport, including players, coaches, staff, officials, spectators, family, volunteers and the general public, is of the utmost importance to Archery Manitoba.
Archery Manitoba, in partnership with Sport Manitoba and Archery Canada has developed a “Return to Sport” Protocol specific to archery, outlining the safe, provincial specific protocols to resume archery activities, events and programs. The return to sport protocol has been reviewed and approved by the Government of Manitoba. This document, in addition to Covid-19 user waivers,  allows clubs a method to resume activities while public health restrictions are in place .
A summary of the recent changes from version 5.2 to 5.3 are as follows:
  • Club Shoots – Groups of up to 25 people are permitted. In the case a site has multiple ranges of courses, each area of the site can host up to 25 archers/participants, as long as each cohort does not interact at any time. Please note coaches and officials are not included in the group count of 25. (this includes both registered and non registered club events).
  • Recreational Archery – activity at outdoor ranges up to 25 people per group. In the case a site has multiple ranges of courses, each area of the site can host up to 25 archers/participants, as long as each cohort does not interact at any time. (This includes league nights and outdoor mailmatch).
  • Indoor Activity is permitted to a maximum of 5 people.

  • Archery Lessons and Day Camps – Groups of 20 people can proceed. In the case a site has multiple ranges of courses, each area of the site can host up to 20 archers/participants. as long as each cohort does not interact at any time. Program leaders (coaches) are not included in the group count. 
  • Archery Team Programming –  Groups of 25 are permitted. In the case a site has multiple ranges of courses, each area of the site can host up to 25 archers/participants, as long as each cohort does not interact at any time. Program leaders (coaches) are not included in the group count.
  • Spectators/Parents – A group of up to 25 spectators are permitted to be on site. Spectators must ensure social distancing from other spectators from outside their household. Spectators must stay within the spectator areas. Spectators and Participants are not permitted to mingle or physically interact for the duration of the event/competition/program.
  • Masks – Non-medical masks must be worn outdoors during registration, equipment inspection, scoring ends and at any time as directed by an official on the field of play. Non-medical masks must be worn indoors at all times.

Austin Taylor wins second US Collegiate Championship

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.

Passing of Timothy Jones

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.

2021 Archery Manitoba 3D Provincial Open Championship

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.
