Diann was born in the small country town of Ingebyra just outside Jindabyne in the picturesque Snowy Mountains and now works as an enrolled nurse at Goulburn base Hospital .Grahame was born in Bundanoon and until being retrenched a couple of years ago worked as a fitter/machinist on the overhaul of underground mining equipment.
We were lucky enough to watch archery at the Sydney Olympics and so began a passion for the sport. Diann and I have represented Australia at a World Field Level 7 times between us. Our most memorable moments were Diann winning the Challenge Rhone Alps event in Val d:Isere in France shooting an Australian Unmarked Field Record then 2 years later in Pakrak, Croatia breaking the same record to win the Alpe Andria Field cup.
MY favourite was being on the field of play as ( glorified bow carrier ) but being up close and personal as Jarrod Nicholson of Australia won the gold medal in Visegradi in Hungary 2010 at The World Field Championships in the Junior Recurve freestyle Division, a picture that still holds pride of place in our shop.
Diann has represented NSW 12 times at National events and has won medals in Target ,Field, Match play and Indoor with a compound, and clout with her longbow.
I have Represented NSW 7 times at National events and helped win a number of teams and Match play medals but the only individual Golds have come while shooting my Longbows.
In 2016 we started focusing on ABA/IFAA events and Diann has won the State and National IFAA events from the Womens Freestyle Unlimited Division and the 2016 World IFAA Championship held in Wagga Wagga – Gold from the Veterans Freestyle Unlimited Division .
In 2018 Diann again won the World IFAA Veterans Freestyle Unlimited Division ,this time in South Africa beating the nearest competitor by over 60 points over the 5 days of competition.
My bow hunting career so far has been limited (mainly by time restraints) but my sales have been biased toward bow hunters at a rate of 10/1.
