Dale Whittaker, long-time customer and friend


Long-time customer, Dale Whittaker

Long-time customer, Dale Whittaker

We announce with sadness that today we learned of the passing of Dale Whittaker.  He became ill last December and had made several visits to the shop to let us know how his recuperation was progressing.  Unfortunately, he succumbed peacefully at home on September 09, 2014.

Thank you, Jennifer, for letting us know that a private family gathering was held for him.   The card you left us was a great tribute to him.  We will miss him, his sense of humour, his gentle nature and kindness, and of course his famous annual Smyth’s Orchard apple cider gift at Christmas.

Dale was a long-standing, very loyal South Nation Archery Supply customer, and in years past was an active house league shooter.  He loved bows and bowhunting; he enjoyed working on the land.  He was always a bright spot in our shop.  He was only 66.

Our thoughts are with Jennifer and her family.

Perkins shoots 1421 on great day for shooting at SNAC


2011 World Target Champion, Christopher Perkins, set a blistering pace today (Saturday, July 19) during the first-half of South Nation Archery Club’s annual 4 x 720 international tournament weekend.  The weather was terrific with a slight breeze and 78 percent humidity.

In the morning, Christopher shot 710/720 at 50m, and followed it up with a 711 in the afternoon for an impressive 1421.

Congratulations to all the other archers who shot so well today, too.

Tomorrow, SNAC will finish off the weekend with two more 720 rounds (70m senior recurve / 60m cadet & masters recurve / 50m compound archers).
