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.

Please see the results for this year’s 720 x 4 internationally-sanctioned rounds.  The weather was terrific with very little winds either days.  Congratulations to all those archers who shot – particularly Christopher Perkins for his outstanding 1421 (2-round total) and Larry E. Smith for setting a new national record for bowhunter release.  Also, congratulations to Patrick Pregent won was one of several archers who shot personal bests this weekend.2014_720x4_weekend_results
