On Saturday July 15th the Selkirk Archers & Bowhunters Club hosted the 2018 Manitoba Provincial Target Championships and Manitoba Open in East Selkirk, MB. The event hosted on a hot, windy day, included a 720 Round Event to determine the Provincial Champions, followed by the combined match play elimination event, the Manitoba Open. Despite the heat and challenging wind conditions, the event drew 37 of the best target shooters in the Province to compete for the title of top Manitoban. The Archers & Bowhunters Association of Manitoba would like to thank Mike Fox, Darlene Cherniak and the rest of the Selkirk Archers & Bowhunters for hosting a top quality event. The organization would also like to thank the archers and supporting parents for their participation in the event, it was a pleasure to see such a diverse field made up of a variety of all ages, genders and disciplines. It is a true indication of all the hard work that clubs in Manitoba are doing to grow the sport of archery.
Thank you to all the volunteers and judges for their support of the event! We would like to specifically recognize our Treasurer Robert Tataryn for running the Manitoba Open and presenting the plaques, our President Vickie Oneschuk for leading the awards ceremony, our VP Coaches & Officials Mike Oneschuk for acting as head judge and member Kelly Scrivener for providing the event photography. Kelly’s photos of the day can be found at the link below:
