Fantastic news everyone! Our fundraising casino, originally postponed due to Covid 19, has been approved for November 22 and 23rd.
You all know what that means - We need VOLUNTEERS!!!

Don't think of it as something you have to do, think of it as a mini vacation. If you come from out of town, Archery Alberta covers your hotel, gas, and breakfast. Out of town AND volunteers local to Calgary will get a meal and snacks. Last year I visited The Hanger Flight Museum in my spare time and even had opportunity to fling some arrows at a couple of the local pro-shops.

There are other incentives available if your club sends at least two volunteers and we are working on additional goodies that you can take advantage of.

If you are interested in taking advantage of a trip to the exciting metropolis of Calgary and helping out the archery community at the same time you can message us here on social media or email grantschair@archeryalberta.ca directly for more information.

This Saturday is Archery Day in Canada!
Archery Canada is pleased to announce BOWdometer as the sponsor for this yearโ€™s Archery Day in Canada campaign.

BOWdometer is a Canadian company (Toxon Technologies Inc) that has developed an archery practice companion that helps archers build confidence as they shoot.

Archery Day in Canada is celebrated every year on the second Saturday of September and aims to unite all archers to celebrate the sport across Canada. The aim of Archery Day in Canada is to not only bring together the Canadian archery community, but also to introduce our sport to new athletes. This year on Archery Day in Canada we will be celebrating the archerโ€™s journey through the sport from childhood to adulthood, recreational to competitive.

BOWdometer straps onto the archers bow and tracks their shots providing you a consistency number for every shot, called โ€œXiโ€. It is a data collector with corresponding mobile apps which has been trialed by members of the national team showing some interesting potential. The BOWdometer is a precise, cost-effective, innovative, and easy to use technology that will help facilitate archer growth and improvement.

www.bowdometer.com/

Through this partnership, Archery Canada will have access to custom wrapped BOWdometers that will be distributed in giveaways and contests.

โ€œWe are thrilled to be working with Archery Canada to help make archery-specific technology more accessible to archery enthusiasts across Canada,โ€ said Marianne Bell, co-founder of Toxon Technologies. โ€œArchery Day in Canada is a great opportunity to help archers along in their archery journey, no matter their skill level.โ€

Archery Canada is extremely excited to be working with BOWdometer to improve the experience of archers across Canada this fall and are looking forward to running fun activities and contests in conjunction with BOWdometer.

Excerpt from Archery Canada Advisory on Covid-19

Mental Health Update
Leading mental health authorities and advocacy groups are calling for an increase in mental health resources to cope with the threat of an โ€œecho pandemicโ€, the significant rise in mental health issues in those significantly affected by COVID-19. The Canadian Sport community is not immune to this echo pandemic, and to help flatten the mental health spike, a preventative and proactive approach must be taken. To help mitigate the ill-effects of stress, protect mental health and promote mental fitness, it is recommended that we practice psychological hygiene as part of the daily routine. The following are some activities to be considered.

Emotional Tolerance
We must remember that emotions are an integral part of the human experience; they are there to protect us, guide us and help us recognize what we need. We should accept that our emotions are real and valid responses to this abnormal event. By understanding our emotions and core needs, we are able to increase our emotional tolerance. Valuable steps in this process include:
โ€ข Naming the emotion we are experiencing (e.g., I feel anxious and overwhelmed) and recognizing it as normal and valid (e.g., just my emotions doing their job in these times of uncertainty)
โ€ข Accepting the emotion as a normal aspect of our experience (e.g., Itโ€™s understandable that I have heightened level of anxiety given the current situation)
โ€ข Identifying needs by exploring what the emotion is revealing or why it is important (e.g., I want to be safe and need to take necessary precautions)
