2. Bursary Established: The WW Gunter Memorial Bursary
The WW Gunter Memorial Bursary is awarded annually to a Canadian Archer between the ages of 15 and 20, who has competed or will be competing for Canada at a World Championship or international archery competition such as the Youth Olympic Games, and who is planning to continue their education at the post-secondary level. The archer must conduct themselves in a manner that is a credit to their sport, their country and always maintain a sense of dignity and sportsmanship in victory and defeat.
Any archer between the ages of 15 and 20 who meet these criteria may apply. Applications will be reviewed by a committee of the Gunter family. Applications are to consist of an introductory cover letter, autobiographical in nature, stating the length of time the archer has participated in the sport, their goals for international competition, their participation in World Championships, Youth Olympic Games or other international archery competitions.
Applications are to also include the archer’s plans for post-secondary education. Applications should also include a short (1-2) page ‘essay’ on what it means to the archer to represent Canada at international archery competitions. A letter from the archer’s personal coach is desirable. In this letter, the personal coach can describe the archer’s abilities, successes, and how they conduct themselves as a representative of the sport, their country and their community.
All decisions and the reasons for the decisions remain within the discretion of the Gunter Family
and will be kept confidential.

A Report on the 5th IWG World Conference on Women and Sport
Every four years, the International Working Group on Women and Sport (IWG) organizes an international conference. The fifth conference was held in May 2010 in Sydney, Australia. This article contains a summary of the major themes discussed during those four days and will give readers an understanding of what is going on around the world in women and sport issues. It was interesting to note that the participants from 58 countries share many concerns and problems. Even if some progress has been made, it is obvious that much is needed in all parts of the world.
