Donations in Memory of Gib Henderson

Déces de Gérard Kentzinger

C’est avec tristesse que nous vous apprenons le décès de M. Gérard Kentzinger. Nous profitons de l’occasion pour tracer les grandes lignes de sa carrière de bénévole tant au niveau du tir à l’arc qu’au niveau de son implication sociale. Une partie de ce texte est extrait d’un article paru dans le journal Le Messager de LaSalle, le 8 mars 2013 alors que la section relative au tir à l’arc est issue de mes nombreux souvenirs acquis depuis 1977.

It is with a heavy heart that Archery Canada announces the passing of Gilbert (Gib) Henderson (Delisle, SK), a true archery gentleman. Gib was an avid archer and a long-time volunteer playing the role of coach, judge and tournament organizer. For many years Gib has been a driving force for the promotion and delivery of archery in his home club the Thunderhead Archers, the Saskatchewan Archery Association and across Canada.

The Interlake Archers of Stonewall, Manitoba recently made a donation to the Canadian Archery Foundation. Thank you to the membership of the Interlake Archers.

Hello Archers
 
Many of you who have registered for any of the USAT events in the United States have been asked or have seen the requirement that non-US citizens and non-US Archery members have to supply a letter from their National organization stating that they are a member of their country's national team. 
 
Archery Canada has worked with USA Archery to solve this problem for Canadian archers.  You will not have to supply this letter.

Information on team selection for the following 2013 Canadian Teams has been posted on the Archery Canada web site.
