EASTON ARCHERY

Following a visit to our facility by EASTON president Greg Easton we were surprised and pleased to receive a beautifully mounted print celebrating 85 years of EASTON as the world leading arrow shaft manufacturer and innovator,showing 3 generations of the  EASTON family who have led and built the company, starting with Doug Easton, followed by his son Jim, and now by his grandson Greg.

The print shows all three of the Easton family with the evolution of the arrow shafts from a 4 footed wood arrow, the original 24SRT aluminum shaft, and an actual X10 Protour arrow featuring a gold plated nock pin and point and marked with a special 85th Anniversary logo indicating 1 of 100.

HALL OF FAME

John and Gretel Dabovich received an AWARD of MERIT from the AUSTRALIAN ARCHERY HALL of FAME.

The award recognized their many years of continuous service to archery in administration, retailing and promotion, and as elite archers who have given time and support to enthusiastically give back to the sport both nationally and in South Australia.

This award was totally unexpected, but greatly appreciated.
