4. Presentation to the Board

ACTION – After the presentation, the chair asked the Directors to take this proposal back to their respective provinces and to report back to the chair, through email.
5. Report on 2001 3D Nationals
Alan spoke about the amount of work needed to run the 3 events together. He indicated that Manitoba found the triple event very hard on the volunteer base and that it would be unlikely that Manitoba would bid for all 3 again. Alan also commented that the Target event was too long. He also indicated that using the Provincial Park had some problems, and recommended not using parks again.
6. Report on 2002 3D Nationals
Don reported that the 4 clubs working together worked very well. Costs were split, and a variety of skills were shared. Before starting the event, a cost- and profit-sharing agreement agreed upon by all parties was essential. Necessary workloads were evenly spread and targets required were shared equally. In all, it was a pleasant working arrangement.
Saskatchewan Don reminded the group that in 2001 a motion was passed to set up a rotation for hosting the 3D Nationals. Ontario was to host the 2003 Championships, but that no bid has been received to date. Estevan, Saskatchewan has submitted a bid (see attached). The bid is supported by the PSO. The report was reviewed by the board and accepted.
8. Other Business
a) IBO Rules
- IBO rules will be reviewed in October. Rule changes should be monitored and FCA rules updated as needed.
- Changes in rule (hard copy) will be updated every 2 years, the same as FITA revisions.
b) Primitive Class
- Don reported that there is a significant Primitive archer class in NS. Don asked if this group was appearing in other provinces. Bruce Savage indicated that there was a group in Ontario. There was very little interest noted in any other province.
Decision – not enough national interest to consider adding this class to the FCA 3D Rules at this time.
