It is with considerable regret that Archery New Zealand announces the cancelation of the Recurve and Compound Level 2 Coaching Course that was scheduled to take place in Auckland during May 2020.
The decision was made by World Archery in line with policies regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and Archery New Zealand acknowledges the wisdom of this decision.
The Chair of the Archery New Zealand Board, Elizabeth Elkins, said ’it’s deeply disappointing that so many archery events have had to be cancelled or postponed but at this point in time there is definitely no option to do otherwise. Health, safety and well-being is at the forefront of Archery New Zealand policy and we support the World Archery decision. M Pascal Colmaire is a legend in the archery world and to have him come to New Zealand to lead these courses was something we were really looking forward to. We’re grateful to the Olympic Solidarity Fund for supporting this event and look forward to working with them again. Let’s hope we can initiate a similar venture in the near future as soon as the crisis around the virus settles down. That’s certainly our plan anyway.’
