Congratulations to Flatlanders Archery Club Members Dave Tissot and Leonard Budgell on being named the 2020 Roger Garrod Memorial Volunteer of the Year Award recipients. The Roger Garrod Memorial Volunteer of the Year Award recognizes the volunteer(s) who have contributed the most to developing archery with in the province of Manitoba during the previous year. While we have many dedicated volunteers in our community, the contribution made by both Dave and Leonard over the past several years has been nothing short of extraordinary. Since 2019 Dave and Leonard have worked countless hours rejuvenating the 3D and Field courses at the Archery Manitoba Sanford Range. While Dave and Leonard have had a tremendous amount of support from fellow club volunteers, they have been the driving force behind the vision of making the Sanford site an Archery Park that all our members can utilize, and be proud of. If you haven’t visited the site before, or it’s been a minute, make sure to join Flatlanders for a shoot night, or participate in an Archery Manitoba event this year to see the wonderful work that has been accomplished the volunteers. If you’re lucky, you’ll see Dave and Leonard out on the course, either working on a new shot or enjoying the trails with friends.
Archery Manitoba and our greater community are fortunate to have volunteers such as Dave and Leonard, volunteers that quietly contribute significant change to our environment in a selfless manner. From the executive committee and membership of Archery Manitoba, thank you to Dave and Leonard!
