The Israeli Archery Association has contacted J-Wire hoping that Australia may be able to send an Archery team to the 2013 Maccabiah in Israel.

Their message reads:

“Every four years, the Maccabiah Games are held in Israel. They are the worlds’ biggest and best Jewish athletic competition, drawing participants from every corner of the globe and in a great variety of sports, in an impressive display of Jewish unity and spirit.

Thus far, archery has not been included in the Maccabiah Games due to an insufficient number of participants. We, members of the Israeli Archery Association, have decided to remedy the situation and have our beloved sport included in the 2013 Games. In order to do so, at least four national teams of three-four archers must apply for participation no later than July 2012. To this end, we are seeking active Jewish archers throughout the world.

If you are an active Jewish archer and are interested in representing your country in this event, please contact us at archery.maccabiah@gmail.com.”

They may be drawing a long bow.
