The action kicked off last Wednesday with the field competition, followed by the annual Fred Usher Memorial Cup team tournament on Thursday, the two-day target championships on Friday and Saturday, and last but not least, the Canadian Open on Sunday.

All these events were preceded by the Canadian Outdoor 3D Championships, also hosted by the St. Mary’s Archers of Truro club, from Aug. 4-6.

“As the 2018 Canadian Championships come to a close, it is good to reflect on the great times we have had here in Nova Scotia, the friendships made, renewed and cemented,” said Archery Canada president Al Wills. “Congratulation to the winners and well done to all competitors. Thank you to our hosts, and we look forward to meeting again next year in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.”

“Two years in the making and we’ve finally done it. A simple goal of providing a world-class event for our archers was all we had in mind. As the sun has set on our final day, I’m excited to say we accomplished that goal,” added Chad Harpell, chair of the organizing committee. “I’m so proud of our committee and all we have done. Great things can be accomplished with the hands of very few. Thank you all for attending.”

Nine archers accomplished the feat of being crowned national champions in both Field and Target competition.

In women’s action, double winners included Stephanie Barrett (recurve), Cathy Relf (recurve – master) and Abbigail Bunn (compound – cub), all from the Ontario Association of Archers.

Their performance was matched on the men’s side by Jacob Gagnon from Fédération de tir à l’arc du Québec (recurve – cub), Austin Taylor from Team Heartland (compound – junior), Rudy Jampen from the Calgary Archers Club (compound – master), Alan Hindle from Twin Rivers Archery (barebow), as well as Cass’ Creek Archery Club teammates Spencer Freeze (recurve – pre-cub) and Keegan Crawford (compound – pre-cub).

The Ontario Association of Archers dominated the Target Championships, winning 10 of 27 individual titles. The OAA also claimed four gold medals during the Field tournament.

A complete list of individual gold medallists from the 2018 Canadian Outdoor Field and Target Championships is included below.
