Too Young to be Gone – Adam Wicks, long-time SNAC member dies at age 31

Adam Wicks dies at age 31

Adam Wicks dies at age 31

It is with sadness, but with many fond memories, that we must relay the news that Adam Wicks died on Friday, August 19th at Winchester District Memorial Hospital of heart failure.

Adam grew up in our archery lanes and was an active participant in house leagues, tournaments, and was an OFSSA archery representative for North Dundas District High School.  Also, he was an enthusiastic bowhunter.

He was in the same grade as our daughter, Amanda, when they attended Inkerman Public School together and they remained friends over their lifetime.  We will miss him.

Results from SNAC’s Annual 4 x 720 Weekend Event


Each year, South Nation hosts an internationally-sanctioned 2 double-720 rounds on a weekend prior to the provincial and national championships.  This allows local-area archers another opportunity to prepare properly for these events.

2016 saw both morning lines full, full, full!  We hosted archers from the Bruce Peninsula, Ajax, Kingston, Joyceville, Petawawa and Gatineau joining others from the Ottawa-Kemptville region.

Except for the hour’s delay on Saturday morning due to a severe thunder storm, the weather was very good and the tournament ran well.

Congratulations to all those who finished the tournament!  Find the results links below.
