The May long weekend was a busy weekend for 6 archers from the Cranbrook Archery Club! The team drove over 1,100 kilometres one way to Compete in the 2014 Canada Cup held in Prince Albert, SK.

The competition consisted of double 720 competition at 50 meters as their qualification round; setting the brackets to where they would shoot on Sunday.

Once again the kids from the Cranbrook area took Canada by storm bringing home three medals. The competition was amazing for all competitors. Brittany and Elaine having to have not one but two, one-arrow shoot-offs during the elimination with different competitors during their head to head match to break a tie. This is one of the many shoots some of these athletes will be attending. Some will be attending the 2014 Outdoor Nationals in Lac Labich, AB in August 2014.
