Obituary - Clive Grundy


I would like to notify archers particularly in the South Island of the passing of Clive Grundy.

Clive had been involved in archery for many years being a member of Christchurch, Dunedin, Geraldine and Timaru Clubs.

In his retirement he fostered archery at the Geraldine High School, built target butts and purchased beginners equipment and had regular competitions every Thursday afternoon.

He had a dream to start an archery club in Geraldine and started Sunday sessions for adults in the schools grounds, with this basis a club was formed.

He was still shooting competitions in his seventies even after major heart surgery such was his passion.

He was a unique character who in his own way contributed much  to archery and people in his community.
