    I would wish you good luck, but, I know you don't need it.

    I would wish you good shooting, but, you do that on your own.

    So instead, I wish you fair winds and fond memories.

    Thanks Gayle. We wish you were here too. Good luck with the basement. No chance of that here. It's hard to flood a montain.

    Wat to go guys......You make me proud.

    Today I watched Tom Riley take all comers in BC and walk away with a gold from the Archery Canada Open in a smoking display of head to head shooting. It wasn't easy and it wasn't quick but he convinced everyone else that he could throw more heat than they could stand. It's the summer of Tom. 2 silver and 1 gold in BC. Nova Scotia produces yet another heavy hitter. Congrats, Dude.

    A large congratulations to Tom on his medal cluster, to Matt on his hanging in on the last day. To all AANS archers for their good performance against top class competition. I am only sorry I was not there to see it although nothing doing in recurve I guess. Perhaps the legacy of the Canada Games in Nova Scotia has not really taken off as it may have done Laurie to bring the athletes of NS to the required standard that obviously BC are breeding. It took Gb a long time to get where they are now and it took a lot of money and talent spotting from the last Olympics to do it. Yorkshire where I am from took a third of the GB medals according to the count which was more than some of the bigger sporting countries like Australia that usually win quite a lot more. There are many things to think about for next year and the games in 2015.
    Again well done all the archers those I know and those I don't and good shooting for the future. Almost forgot a big congratulations to the manager who was probably running around behind the scenes as he usually does.

    Actually Sean, they may not have made it to the nationals this year, but we have a growing contingent of young recurve archers now. I love seeing them and how excited they are!!! They have people like Tom and Matt and Laurie to look to (even if they are compounds) to help them dream that they can do it on the bigger stage. And considering they placement of our team against those "bigger" provinces. We have nothing to be ashamed of.

    That's good to hear there's still time for a good recurve contingent then for the future.

    Wow, where to start on all that? Thanks for the congrats Sean.

    There are, and will always be recurves among us and the only reason there are no recurve medals is because LadySteel put her duty as a nurse before her own needs. That's a huge sacrifice and to be commended. Thanks Gayle. Here's a bit of a motivator for young recurves: Rumour is our 2 olympic archers each got 100K to spend on whatever it took to get them where they needed to be. That's a lot of international experience if you need it.

    I don't really contribute much to the overall standard of our archers other than to promote the idea of excellence and to show folks that there are opportunities out there for glory. Nova Scotia archers did well because of their own individual talents, not because of me.

    BC is breeding an army of athletes as are Ontario, Quebec and the rest of the provinces but the fact remains that the individuals that compete are a product of their own dedication. We are missing a few things in Nova Scotia but nothing a motivated athlete can't get around. Really, if there is a disadvantage in Nova Scotia, it is the mindset that it is a sin to be competitive and to strive for something better.

    When one archer strives to be elite, it does not hurt the rest of the archers. Quite the opposite.

    And, yes, I just saw Rob Laprade and he was still running around behind the scenes! Running up a mountain after 2 kids and a wife.

    Congratulations once again to all of Team NS for your dedication and hard work. I'm sure there are a few young archers who will be interested in hearing what it is was like. Safe home.
