Sad News

Its with a great deal of sadness that we here at Glasgow Archers have to report that one of our long standing members, Rona Mather, sadly passed away last week (7th June).

Rona in her element. Organizing a Scottish Championship.

Rona was a stalwart of the club for many many years. As an archer and committee member. Through coaching and mentoring. To running the kitchen at competitions making breakfast for the judges and field party. Some of you may even have started your archery journey with Rona through a beginners course with MRM.

Until ill health robbed her of her strength, she was invariably the first person you met at GA. The person most able to herd the flock of cats that is an archery club in a productive direction. Always the first to roll up her sleeves and get stuck in.  Always on or around the shooting line with a guiding word. 
We here at GA will be forever grateful for all the time and effort she dedicated to the sport and to the running of this club.

She will be remembered as a formidable character, a motivator and a dedicated archer who will be sadly missed. 
Her husband Michael has asked should anyone wish to make any donations, Cancer Research would be very grateful.

Donations to Cancer Research.
