Our Athlete Of The Month is Dean Thorton, an extremely accomplished archer. Thornton represents PSE Archery, Nock On, Easton, Gas Bowstrings, Carter Releases, Calgary Archery Center, Maven Optics, CCS Custom Scopes, and AAE Archery. The extensive sponsorship list is not the most impressive part, Thornton is also an 18-time Alberta indoor and outdoor 3D Champion, current Canadian indoor Master Compound Unlimited Champion, past Canadian Master Field Champion, Canadian Record holder for Masters Unlimited Compound in Field, and is currently part of the British National 3D Team. Admirably, Thornton has also participated in the IBO World Championships and The Pro Archery Series in Europe. Thornton would like to give a big shoutout to John Dudly and Alan and Lorna Southwood for their continued support. Although Thornton has extensive experience, his favorite tournaments are The NFAA marked 3D Championships in Redding and the Indoor Vegas Shoot. Despite the lull in archery due to covid, Thornton is optimistic about getting back to archery as he is looking forward to the 2022 outdoor season kicking off at Redding in May. From Thornton himself, “Good luck to everyone this season. Let’s get back to doing what we love.”.
