Gil and Susan will both be competing in the Archery World championship in France next week.

This IS a big deal and I am so excited for them.

Gil knows I am currently in Greenland and he promised to wave at me, when him and susan fly over Greenland on their way to France. What is funny is all day Thursday I will probably wave at every commercial airplane I see that day

GOOD LUCK GIL AND SUSAN

Cheyenne,
Are you into archery? It sounds as though you might be.
I'm going to be getting back into it. This time it's going to be more "primitive" and get back to my ancestors roots. I want to get either a Hungarian horse bow, or a Mongolian horse bow. It seems very interesting to me.
Congratulate Him and Susan for me. I wish I could see the World Championships myself.
You go and waive at all the passing planes you want. They're bound to be on at least one that you wave at!

Yup, they're off soon. Gil & Susan are climbing a steep hill; it is their first foray into the world competition. We're all pulling for them.

LOL----not like Gil and Susan---but yes we still use a bow and arrow and a harpoon as well. But for fish , seals, walrus, whales, but not Caribou, or Moose We were taught at a young age how to use a bow, harpoon, knife, rifle, spear, net etc, but nothing like what you fellows do ( when you talk bow hunting ) or not even close to what Gil and Susan are doing.

I think it is so exciting that they even got to the World---Go Gil and Susan

I forgot to mention, the "primitive" horse bow that I'm looking at gets 175 fps to 200 fps with 380gr and 400gr arrows.

That is, indeed, a beautiful bow. One who can use the bow accurately while mounted has mastered some enviable skills.

Cheyenne thanks for posting that update. That would be neat if they do well and I wish Gil and Susan the best of luck. I'd like to see a video of them competing if they can somehow pull that off!! I shoot a Martin Hunter recurve and I wish I would have gotten into archery sooner. I'd like to have competed in archery and think that would have been a lot of fun. I did compete in the Montana Archery BEAR shoot which is a 3-D competition one year and I took 3rd place my first try. It's a lot of fun.

Gil and Susan go get em!!

David

Well we went, we faced new challenges, met new people, learned lots and had a great time with the other members of Team Canada on our trip to the World Championships!

Have to say that the organizing committee for the event in France did not treat Team Canada, Luxemburg, Slovakia and some of Team Russia very well. Due to changes and challenges with accommodations and transportation we did not get to go to the Gala Event on the last evening! Archery Canada will be dealing with this issue with World Archery this month at their meeting in Mexico.

We did not fare as well as we should have or would have liked facied with the recent injuries received at the Canadian National Championships. The course on the first day was very technical and physically challenging in the mountains, where Susan fell and is still experiencing symptoms from a concussion delivered by an oak tree that prevented her from falling further down the mountainside. I finished in 42nd place in my division on my worst event in my competitive career, while Susan finished in 37th in her division. If I had just shot my normal performance (over 80%), I would have placed first overall in the qualifying rounds, and moved on in the elimination rounds with the top 16.

We now know what we need to do in preparing for the World Championships here in Canada in 2019!

There are two Youtube videos from the World 3D Archery Championships, where Susan is caught shooting in slow motion on the course: very cool!

Thanks for all the support and encouragement!

I would say you still did quite well since getting there was the biggest challenge you had to face and you Aced that.
I pray Susan recovers fully and even with her injuries she still competed and that had to be every special for her.
Congratulations to you both.

Congratulations to you both!
You both have to be exceptional archers in order to go!
Going is a great accomplishment!
Now, you know what lies ahead this next time, and you will rise above it.
Sorry to hear about Susan being injured, I hope she heals quickly with no effects afterwards.
You should be proud that you represented your country, and fellow archers extremely well!

Well this may not have been your best Gil, but either way it is still a HUGE accomplishment for the both of you! Sorry to hear Susan had fallen so far down to injure herself so bad, hopefully she will recover soon enough?

I'll have to watch the YouTube video after hitting the send button on this quick note. Best Wishes to you both.

Gil and Susan what an accomplishment just to make it to the big dance like that! You guys did fantastic. Question what kind of bows were you competing with?? Compound or Recurve??

Susan and I both competed in the Barebow division.

These are recurve bows, the same as the Olympic bows, but without the benefit of sights and stabilizers.

Could someone share a link to the you tube with Susan competing ? I can't seem to find it and would like to see it.

Congratulations Gil and Susan. You did well, especially considering the health and course circumstances. We as fellow forum members and fellow North Americans are all very proud of you!

And I hope you are both feeling better.

Gil, as an aside, are you allowed to all big game animals in Canada with a bow----and do you ?
