It marked the 14th edition of the annual event, which was added to the Archery Canada schedule in 2005.
“The event offered three unique courses that each had their own unique feel and challenges that really tested all the archer’s skills,” said Aaron Bull, Vice President 3D Programs at Archery Canada. “The competition was hard fought in many of the categories with the nation’s top athletes in attendance fighting for a spot on the podium.”
“In hosting the Canadian Indoor 3D Archery Championships this past weekend, our community got the chance to be part of shared optimism, excitement and spirit, and to celebrate the remarkable talent of elite national archery competition,” added Sundre Mayor Terry Leslie. “The Elk Ridge Archery Club, our local volunteers, businesses, town staff and spectators came together with the purpose of helping to give every competitor the chance to create great memories and build relationships. We all got to touch the future as we watched the younger competitors begin to dream their goals for the next generation. This was a once in a lifetime experience for all involved, and we are a grateful community for having the opportunity to be part of it.”
Of the 28 archers who reached the top of the podium in Sundre, nine successfully defended their national titles from 2017, including Roseanne Quintal (Master 50 Traditional – women), Caroline Laue (Instinctive – women), Angela Hay (Hunter – women), Al Campsall (Master 60 Compound – men), Ron Sullivan (Para Compound – men), Joel Schmid (Cub Compound – men), Gary Bosch (Barebow – men), Monty Vander Westhuizen (Longbow – men) and Fred Streleoff (Instinctive – men).
