Wow, what a week! Norm and I drove the ~1700 km to Truro, NS, alternating drivers every few hours for the 2018 Canadian Field & Target Championships. Although the drive was long and exhausting, the landscape of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Eastern Quebec was absolutely stunning (plus we saved a lot of money over flying).
For the most part, the weather was amazing. It went from calm, hot, and humid for the Field shoot, to pleasantly warm with a strong headwind for the Target qualifications, then some really strange changing winds for the Canadian Open.
I managed to keep mentally confident and stick to my focus plan which allowed me to score pretty well in all three events; well enough to win gold in the Archery Canada Field Championship, Target Championship, and in the Canadian Open too!
Congratulations to all of the competitors and thank you to Archery Canada, Archers Association of Nova Scotia, the organizing committee, and all of the volunteers and sponsors for an amazing week of tournaments! Nova Scotia is a beautiful province and I had a great time exploring this past week; I can’t wait to come back!
Special thank you to Canada Archery Online for your support!
