Archery Guyana is proud to announce that due to our affiliation to World Archery Americas (WAA), we have been invited to participate in the ONLINE ARCHERY CUP OF THE AMERICAS, which is organised by World Archery Americas.
This competition is set out to have the spirit of competing on a virtual arena whilst abiding with the COVID-19 safety measures across the Americas (north, south and Central America and the Caribbean)
Archery Guyana is tasked with conducting Qualification rounds, which will be a 600 round. Scores will be recorded electronically, pictures of equipment, scorecards and the target will be sent to the Competitions and Judging Committee via Whatsaap for tabulations and scrutiny.
Seven archers will be undertaking the challenge of recording the highest score out of 600 for Guyana. Canadian-based Guyanese Wayne DeAbreu and Devin Persaud will be shooting from an Archery facility in Canada, while Umasankar Madray, Nicholas Hing, Robert Singh, Samira Duncan and Talitha Kissoon will be shooting from various locations in Guyana.
Cognizant of the National Covid-19 Protocols in place and abiding with the laws and the social distancing safety rules as to the limit on the number of persons permitted to be in any gatherings, shooting will be done in pairs at different time and dates (23rd and 25th August). Archery Guyana will then submit the scores for Guyana by August 31st to World Archery Americas, which will be tabulated along with scores from all other partaking countries. Top 2 archers in each category will be short listed to take part in an Elimination shoot, set for late September.
