The recently reestablished 3D Committee has been meeting to discuss how ABAM & Archery Clubs can enhance outdoor 3D Events in the Province. The committee has created a very simple 10 question survey for anyone in the Archery Community to complete if they would like to offer feedback or Ideas. In order to help make events better in the future and entice new participation, we ask that you complete the survey and share it with friends.

Glen Lewer

Passing of Glenn Lewer

It is with a heavy heart that the Archers & Bowhunters Association of Manitoba announces the passing of Glenn Lewer, a true gentleman and ambassador to the sport of archery. Glenn was an avid archer and archery coach, playing a key role in developing young archers in Manitoba with his involvement for many years as a coach with the Heights Archery Academy and more recently the Assistant Coach for the 2015 Canada Winter Games Team. Since the Winter Games in 2015, Glenn had taken on a key role with the ABAM, sitting on the Executive Committee as our Vice President Athlete Development and being named Provincial Head Recurve Coach. Glenn will missed by all. Our sincere condolences go out to the Lewer family and in particular his wife Sheila and his two sons Riel and Grayson.
