We recently hosted a great event for Top Camp. Top Camp is organized by Archery Canada and this year Marc Gagnon asked us to host the Camp . There were 18 Archers from cub cadet junior and senior category (two compound shooters and the rest recurve) The first two days the archers were coached by Joan MacDonald (from Toronto) and Dick Tone, an Internationally known Coach.
Both Coaches were showing a new technique on how to draw the bow using both shoulders. It is fantastic to see how easier it become to draw the bow using this new technique. The youngsters learned it quite easily
On Thursday the 17 Aug, Top Camp held a 720 round with elimination round (based on points) where 16 archers participated. Again it was great to watch these youngsters to shoot great scores. Top Camp does this Camp throughout the country. In 2018 the Camp will be held in the Maritimes, and in 2019 In Alberta.: 1 Senior ( 21 -49), 5 Juniors (18-20), 9 Cadet (15-17) 1 Cub (13-14) These are the 16 archers that participated. This Tournament was judged by Marc Gagnon. The Archers were from QC, ON AB, SK.
