The Ontario Summer Games continued over the weekend with archery events taking place at the Crumlin Sportsmen Association in the east end of the city. 59 archers, 18 using a recurve bow, 41 using a compound bow, competed in the Double-720 event on Saturday where archers fire 6 arrows per round for 12 rounds before breaking for lunch then doing it all over again. Total score wins. These young athletes returned on Sunday to square off against each other in elimination match play.

One standout in the tournament is Abiggail Bunn who has recently won the Target Provincials in Ottawa, the 3D Provincials in Muskoka, and has been named as a member of the team travelling to the upcoming Canada Winter Games.
