Archers Reach Podium
The Archers Association of Nova Scotia would like to heartily congratulate Nova Scotian shooter, Matthew MacDonald for winning the Gold Medal in the Hunter Class last month at the 2016 Canadian Outdoor 3D Archery Championships in Windsor, Ontario. Fellow Nova Scotian George Simms took the Bronze Medal and shared the podium with Matt. AANS is extremely proud to have two of our own reach the podium at this year’s National Championships.
AANS is currently selling sets of 2 decals. One can be applied to a bow case, accessory box, etc. while the other to the inside of a car window, club house or other window. The cost of the set is $5.00 or $6.00 if you would like them mailed directly to you. A request for decals may be sent with $6.00 to the AANS mailbox*, or they can be picked up at various shoots.
