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.
After careful review, the Canadian Olympic Committee's Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal Nomination Committee has selected 41 individuals who will be recognized for their exceptional work within the Canadian high-performance sport community. These individuals have made tremendous contributions to the Canadian Olympic Movement and the advancement of sport in Canada. Archery Canada’s President, Allan (Al) Wills, is one of the 41 recipients selected by the COC for this prestigious honour.
The Archery Canada office will be closed on Friday, February 8th and Monday and Tuesday, February 11th and 12th
Archery Canada is happy to announce that the submission for Conner Sorley was awarded the Alpen scope generously donated by Alpen Optics.
Congratulations Conner and thank you Alpen!
