After a two-year delay, about 300 archers have gathered on P.E.I. for the Canadian Outdoor Archery Championships.

It is the first time archery nationals have been hosted in the region. There are athletes of all generations from across the nation, he said.

“To be hosting an event of this volume is hugely rewarding, exciting,” said Crawford. 

“It’s just amazing to see so many friends back and everybody out appreciating the sport of archery.”

The championships merge three events: the 3D, the field, and the target contest. 

“It’s so nice to be back yet shooting after so many years,” said longbow archer Miranda Sparkes from British Columbia. 

“It’s like a big family reunion coming to these events every year.”
