Archery 

Watching the Canada Games is fine, but wouldn't you rather live them? (part 2)

Alfie O’Quinn, president of the Archery Association of Nova Scotia, made his own longbow last year. He chopped down an ash tree, cut out a suitable piece of wood, sanded it down and braided a string for it. He says archery is a fine-dexterity sport that requires discipline. If you want to get involved, you can buy your own bow for $40 to $2,000, or ask O’Quinn to show you how to make one. Bows and arrows are also available for newbies to borrow at the CFB Halifax Archery Club. Just walk into their 10-lane shooting range and they’ll introduce you to a mentor, he says. They’re open from 7pm to 9pm on Sundays and 6pm to 8:30pm on Tuesdays. You might even rub shoulders with hunters who shoot their own dinner.
