Team Manitoba was well represented, having Alexander Perron, April Willis, Brad Hackewich, Brendan Mills, Cornelia Squirra, Ed Wilson, Francois Squirra, Jaxon Chadney, Josten North, Miles Towle, Reed Fowlie, Reid Jonasson, and Russ Danielson in attendance. While Archery Manitoba Members, Brian Erickson, Darcie Widish, Jay Beauerlein, Leon Laffin, Patrick Perron and Taylor Laffin also in attendance.

The organization would like to thank 3D Team Leader Ed Wilson for all his hard work in lead up to, and at the National Championships. Ed has worked tirelessly this year, volunteering his time to reshaping the team program, hosting clinics and practices and organizing team travel. We look forward to what can be built beyond the progress made in 2019.

We would also like to recognize and thank Manitoba 3D Archery Provincial Representative Russ Danielson and Archery Canada Board Member and Vice President 3D Aaron Bull for their ongoing support and volunteering. Both Aaron and Russ participated in national meetings while attending the event.

Finally, we would like to congratulate all of our Manitoba Shooters on thier performance. Highlights from the Manitoba specific results include Cornelia Squirra securing a Team Canada Spot to represent our country at the 2019 World 3D Championships in Lac La Biche, Alberta in early September, and medal finishes for Alex Perron, April Willis, Cornelia Squirra, and Jaxon Chadney.
