This is the 2nd year for the ABAM Triple Crown Series. Our goal is to continue to grow a premier 3D tournament series for competitive archers and bowhunters in Manitoba, while attracting participants from out of province.
All three partner clubs listed will host an Archery Canada Sanctioned Tournament. Provincially certified tournament officials will ensure proper equipment and field play rules are enforced.
Participants will compete within their Archery Canada Sanctioned Category for placement that earn points toward ranking in their ABAM Triple Crown Category. The Triple Crown Tournament Series rules have combined 30 Archery Canada Sanctioned Categories into seven (7) gender specific categories for youth and adults.
Archers can accumulate Triple Crown points in only one category. Archers must participate in a minimum of two (2) Triple Crown stages, including the Triple Crown Championship event (final stage) to be eligible. The top three (3) archers ranked in each Triple Crown Category will win ABAM Championship Medals and have their names added to the Triple Crown Trophy for presentation at our annual awards banquet. In addition, top ranked archers from each category will win grand prizes.
