It is with a heavy heart that the Archers & Bowhunters Association of Manitoba announces the passing of Roger Garrod, a great man and ambassador to the sport of Archery. Roger was a tireless volunteer and archer of many disciplines, during his years of involvement he served on multiple provincial and national committees, was a provincial coach, coach educator, as well judging provincial, national, and international events. More recently, Roger had been an integral part of his local club, the Selkirk Archers & Bowhunters as it increased events and development, as well a driving force behind getting Archery back in the Manitoba Games. Roger will be missed. Our sincere condolences go out to Roger’s family and in particular his wife Helen.
A celebration of Roger’s life will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, November 12 in the Qualico Family Centre by the duck pond in Assiniboine Park. This information is also posted on the Cropo Funeral Chapel website.

The Archers & Bowhunters Association of Manitoba is proud to be a part of the 2018 Manitoba Games, to be hosted in Thompson, MB in Winter 2018.
The 2018 Manitoba Winter Games Powered by Manitoba Hydro will be held in Thompson from March 4-10, 2018. The Games are a competitive, developmental opportunity for selected sports to advance their Provincial Sport Organization’s long term athlete and coach development plans. The age or stage selected generally complies with the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Train to Train stage of development.
Participation in the Manitoba Games begins with regional try outs. Regional teams of approximately 200 athletes, coaches, and managers go on to participate in the Provincial Finals.
The Manitoba Games Powered by Manitoba Hydro are often an athlete’s first multi-sport Games experience. The Games help to identify Manitoba athletes who have the potential to advance to higher levels of competition: Provincial Team, National Competitions, and the Canada and Western Canada Games. After competing in the Manitoba Games, many athletes move on to become part of Team Manitoba.
The Archers and Bowhunters Association of Manitoba is proud to have four Provincial Team Archers heading to the 2017 World Archery Youth Championships in Rosario, Argentina this weekend. Team Members Austin Taylor, Brady Klassen & Robbie Comberbach will be competing in the individual and team events in the Cadet Compound Male Division.
