In his farewell address, Pascal outlined the need to continue hosting international-level events and to develop coaches beyond the club level. He noted Canadas success with young archers since 1993 and felt the lack of similar success among adult archers came from a lack of political will in Canada. Pascal leaves the FCA to pursue a career with FITA.
Al Wills congratulated the Aylmer Archery Club that hosted the very successful 3D nationals this year. Greg Durward thanked all the site co-ordinators for the indoor championships. Andrew Webber noted the increase in mailmatch participation and thanked the club co-ordinators. Al Wills expressed FCAs hope that Reed Fowlie, Coaching Chairman, would have a speedy recovery from his recent illness.

Several suggestions were given. Field participation was stronger than anticipated in 2000. It was suggested that all 3 nationals should run without overlap so archers could participate in each discipline. The 2001 nationals will remain the same format as the Boucherville example.

2003 Outdoor/3D Championships
Since no bids were received from the floor for any championships, advertising and approving bids will become the responsibility of the Board of Directors.
Both Alberta and Saskatchewan will be celebrating centenaries in 2005. Medicine Hat and Frontier Bowmen (Regina) clubs plan to bid for the national championships in that year. There is no perceived conflict in 2001 between the United States target championship dates and FCAs. The president stressed the need to remain positive for the future and build on the good things happening this week at the nationals. It was requested that the Board alter the outdoor championships clothing policy.
I move that the Annual General Meeting of the Federation of Canadian Archers stands adjourned.
