3.         Allan (Al) Wills: Recipient of Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal

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.  

Al has been a long-serving and committed volunteer to the sport of archery in numerous capacities, both in Canada and internationally. His contribution is far-reaching and second to none. Al consistently displays a keen and genuine passion and love for archery. As well, Al always carries out his volunteer roles and responsibilities with tireless enthusiasm. As a result, Al has quietly and deservedly earned the respect of athletes, coaches, officials, parents and volunteer/staff administrators from across Canada and from around the World. Under his strong leadership and direction, both Archery Canada and archery in Canada have and continue to grow and prosper. There is no doubt that the body of work that Al Wills has undertaken and contributed, to Archery Canada and the Canadian archery community, is extraordinary. He is most deserving of this honour bestowed on him. 

The Canadian Olympic Committee publicly announced the Diamond Jubilee recipients on February 6th in conjunction with Queen Elizabeth II Accession Day, at a formal event hosted by Canada’s Governor General, the Rt. Honourable David Johnston, at Rideau Hall.

Congratulations Al!

4.         Bruce Savage: Recipient of Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal

The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) recently announced the awarding of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal to 49 outstanding individuals who have been instrumental in the development and delivery of the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). The recipients of the medal were nominated for their significant contributions to coaching development and coach education through the NCCP in a particular sport, province, territory, region, or community within Canada.  Archery Canada’s Bruce Savage is one of the 49 recipients selected by the CAC for this prestigious honour.  

Bruce has been a long-serving and committed volunteer to the sport of archery both nationally and provincially (Ontario). His volunteer contribution has been significant in the following areas: i) coaching education (particularly Archery Canada’s NCCP); ii) coaching and program leadership; and iii) archery instruction to beginners and coaching of recreational and competitive archery athletes (including high performance).  Bruce is Chair of Archery Canada’s Coaching Certification Committee and as such has played a pivotal role in the transition to and ongoing development and implementation of the new Archery Canada NCCP. Bruce has been the lead in the development of the new workshop resource materials and has organized and delivered Learning Facilitator and Master Learning Facilitator training workshops. Bruce’s knowledge and expertise in coaching and athlete development has also proven of much benefit to Archery Canada’s work on the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Model and the follow-up LTAD Competition Model. There is no doubt that Bruce’s ‘body of work’ is significant and that his contribution is tremendously valued and appreciated by both Archery Canada and the Ontario Association of Archers and therefore by extension, the Canadian archery community at large.

Congratulations Bruce!

9.         2013 Mailmatch

           

January 2013 is fast approaching and it is time to get set to start another Mailmatch.  The Mailmatch is an excellent competition for the archer who cannot get to any of the larger tournaments during the winter months. It also gives the archer an idea as to how other archers are shooting by comparison.  This competition is also good practice for tournaments but under less stressful conditions.  More information can be found on the Archery Canada website.

 

One thing to note for this year is a change in some of the Senior/Master categories.  The old Bowhunter categories have been replaced with BH Open, BH Release, BH Fingers and Hunter, all scoring outer 10’s on a 40cm target face. Detailed information on equipment division rules is available in the Archery Canada rulebook .

A reminder that all recurve, barebow, and pre-cub & cub compounds score outer 10’s with the remainder of compounds scoring inner 10’s.  The scorecards no longer have the removal of the 10’s for compounds so please make sure to mark your cards accordingly. Scorecards can be found on the Archery Canada website.

If you wish to join the Mailmatch, contact your club president or secretary.  If they don’t have the information, contact Patti Middlebrough, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it at (780) 997-6411

2. 2012 Paralympic Games

Three-time Paralympian Norbert Murphy (Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC) made history in bringing home the bronze medal in the Compound Bow, Men's ARW1 category at the London Paralympic Games. Murphy's bronze medal performance marked the first time in history that a Canadian archer has won a Paralympic or Olympic medal.

Murphy had to regroup after a difficult semi-final against American Jeff Fabry after Fabry dropped his bow, damaged it, and had to leave the archery compound, miss a set and retrieve a backup bow to continue the competition. Fabry went on to win the semi-final 7-3.

"It was Murphy's law that it would happen to me," joked Murphy. "It threw me off for sure. I even offered him my spare bow. But I went out and listened to some music after the semi-final so I could refocus."

In the bronze medal match, Murphy scored two points in the first, third and fourth set and tied the second set to take one point. Murphy defeated Osmo Kinnunen of Finland 7-1 to lock-up the bronze.

"I came here hoping for a medal," continued Murphy. "I was ready for it."

"This experience has been incredible," added Team Leader Vladimir Kopecky (Kimberley, BC). "You become so familiar with the athletes, wishing all the best for them. I know the hard work they went through to get to this position. This is very satisfying."

Congratulations Norbert and the entire Paralympic Archery Team!

Athletes and staff for the London 2012 Paralympic Games:

• Norbert MURPHY (Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC) - Compound Bow, Men's ARW1 category

• Kevin EVANS (Jaffray, BC) – Compound Bow, Men's Open category
