President, Bruce Lang said, “These appointments are a watershed for ARCHERY SA, bringing “new eyes” to the sport of archery in South Australia. I am encouraged that there are people such as Adam and Arthur willing to give their time to further a sport for which they previously had little knowledge. Archery and members can only benefit from the inputs Adam & Arthur can make. I encourage all members to make Adam and Arthur feel welcome and to ensure they become integral parts of the archery family.”
