I hope that everyone had a great holiday season. With that behind us now, it’s time to start a very exciting new year. The ATAA executive has started working on a new Strategic plan that will address all of your concerns from the survey sent out, and by using more communication will make a better Association for all members. We are also conducting a governance review process that involves revisions to the Association Bylaw and Constitution. This will be ready for the AGM. 

From January to the end of March there is the Archery Canada Mail Match where you can compete with rest of Canada by mailing in scores. On Jan 12th and 13th, we hosted the first High Performance Clinic for Archers 11-21 years of age. This clinic was put together by Wayne Richey and was hosted by the Lakeland Archers in Lac La Biche. We are hoping this will be held every year in different parts of the province. We are also hoping to host High Performance clinics for adults in the near future. On Jan 19th and 20th, there will be a Judge’s Clinic held in Red Deer for Judge Candidates and Provincial Judges. This Clinic will be taught by one of the world’s top international judges, Dion Buhagiar . Please try to send a candidate from your club to help supply the demand for registered shoots. On Jan 19th and 20th, Lethbridge is hosting the Indoor 3D Provincials. On February 3rd, the ATAA junior mail match will begin, for all clubs to participate in. On Feb 15th to 18th, the Medicine Hat Saamis Archers will host the Indoor 3D Nationals in Medicine Hat. March 1st to the 3rd will be the Canadian Indoor Championships, held regionally. March 23th and 24th is the Indoor Target Provincials in Lac La Biche. Please try to attend the AGM as there are lots of changes coming. 

There are lots of shoots hosted for 3D and Target all over the Province. Please check the ATAA website for times and details. As we start a New Year, let us forget the past and work together for a better future. See you in the lanes!
